We finished up Flora Bowley's Bloom True e-course back in March. I'd been in a holding pattern with my paintings ever since.
Then a couple of things happened.
First, I realized the colors on my canvas were throwing me off. For the course, I bought and borrowed Golden fluid acrylics along with some heavy body acrylics from Dick Blick. Long story short, I didn't have the variety or the hues I favor when working with plain old acrylic craft paint. So, I finally made the decision to just use my crafty acrylics. Flora had said that would be ok :).
Next, I kept seeing paintings that people had creating during a class with artist Jennifer Mercede. I was somewhat familiar with Jennifer's licensed work, and I love her whimsical, doodle-filled, colorful style. Abstract, colorful...my wheels started turning.
I haven't signed it yet, which means I'm not quite done tweaking it. I may add some text and a few more details. We'll see.
For now though, it's totally making me happy!
Thanks for stopping by,
