Well here I go..........and Sunday Sketches...

So, although time is a hot commodity here, I feel the need to really learn some technique!  I see paintings in my head and can't get them down on paper.  Either I don't even try because I sit and stare at paper afraid to tackle it or just smudge around with it.  The angel episode damaged my ego but I've recovered.  The second edition was well recieved but somehow it didn't feel good as I feel I let myself be taken advantage of.  I should have charged!!! 
I'm trying to let loose and get messy....

Anyways, this week I did do a page in the messy book group (see sidebar) -  I also learned alot about my watercolor crayons doing this, I hadn't really noticed how different they feel as they go down on the paper... and after I took out my aggressions on my first angel I feel freer!!   I am looking forward to starting Natasha May's Cotton Candy Girls class AND Lisa Wrights e-course!!!!!!!!!!!!  So I need to become a better time manager! Click on the sidebars to check out their information.

a work in process....
So, now onto Sunday Sketches....an inspiring place to visit each week!!!!  So much is shared, beyond the artwork!!!  I know that I will be able to produce what I invision with this owl once I have a couple weeks of Natasha and Lisa's classes in! 

cheers, dana

Your first angel was beautiful - it wasn't your fault that the other person failed to see it's beauty. Just chalk it up up to his narrow mindedness and think no more about it.

Enjoy your classes.

Have a great new week.

Hugs,
Penny

You're so sweet for pimping my class. :) Thank you! Well, angel incident is just another lesson to learn, I guess. :) Hope you soon find some more time to create.
