Flowers For Mom!

Here is a quick post sharing a bit of my work from the week gone by! It's May 1st already and am still working on cards for Mother's Day! It was a busy week filling orders over at Etsy and have not had much time for anything else!

I have been wanting to get outside and plant some annuals and get my herb garden started, but after a brief warm up, the temps have dropped again, and it's still cold and wet to really get anything done...waiting for warmer weather again.Until then I am painting flowers!

As I had mentioned in an earlier post, I have joined  the #The100DayProject on IG and so far it is coming along pretty well...12 days into it and am still on track! Keeping my fingers crossed!..!
100 days is a long time ..a huge commitment, yet it was a challenge that I needed to keep me motivated!

I think I better stop right here and get some breakfast on the table! Will be back later next week with a video!

Happy Sunday!

Papertrey April 2016 Blog Hop Challenge

Happy Monday!

I am so excited about my watercolor piece today!

This month Papertrey Ink really challenged me to do something I had never done before...go abstract!
...although I have painted some oil abstracts before, trying to do one with watercolors was different and something that had never occurred to me earlier. I have no idea why I had not attempted this subject's so liberating to just go free!

For this painting I just let go and let the pigment do it's own thing. I let the painting guide me through the steps and I think this piece truly came on it's own!

Here is the inspiration picture..

When I started I knew I wanted to paint circles, so I simply drew some with the help of my painters tape and other bottle caps around the house and went from there. The  most difficult decision was whether to add a sentiment or not...I was torn! But then decided to add this tiny little, 'loaded with meaning'  word from the PTI Movers and Shakers Sentiments set .

Have a great week ahead!

Flowers For Mom

I hope you enjoyed the video that I shared in my last post!

Today, I have a picture heavy post for you!
......lots of projects done over the last week!

Ever since I got on twitter, I have started to work on my images and make them more social media are some of them!

Also, I have joined a really fun project over at Instagram ..the 100 day project! So starting today you will be seeing one painting done every single day for the next 100 days!  A huge commitment it is, and I hope to stay on track, for, I am not one to stay true to such long drawn plans! I am the kind who books last minute tickets! But this was just the kind of challenge that I needed to stay motivated !

I plan to share them here on the blog simultaneously or at least once a week! Not really thought of it as yet!

Expressive Watercolors - VIDEO

After a long hiatus, am back on the video scene!

Over the last one year, I had taken a break from recording videos. the editing part was the most time consuming and  keeping  up with everything was getting very difficult ..especially with a new venture like a shop! Since my last video, I had been receiving emails asking about my absence and quite a few " where are you?"comments on older videos made me feel so bad that I had subscribers waiting for new content and I was not able to post anything!

 Over the weekend, I received an extremely heartwarming email, a note that touched my heart so deeply, that I left all that I was doing and went to my studio and set up the camera and painted the first thing that came to my mind!  A simple yet thought provoking note to let me know I was missed! missed? really?

YouTube is full of talented artists and there is no dearth of watercolor tutorials and yet to know that my work was missed meant a lot to me! I don't have a whole lot of subscribers, especially when compared to all the super popular crafters out there, yet, it feels nice to know that I make a difference in people's life in my own small, little way!

Ever since I started doing videos in 2014, the single most appreciated comment that made all the work so worthwhile, was when someone said that they were inspired enough to start painting again! I hope and  pray that I can continue to share whatever little I know through my videos and encourage people to pick up a brush and paint!

Here is the video for this painting..

This painting is available on  Etsy

I hope you enjoyed the video!

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful week ahead!

Easter Wishes

Stopping by to wish everyone a very Happy Easter !

 I love this verse a lot, it reminds me to have complete faith in His supreme power...and where there is  faith, there should be no fear. I need to simply trust that He will do whatever is best for me . I need to be still and leave the rest to Him.
