PAINTING in Italy 2018

PAINTING in Italy 2018

I am very happy to announce that I am teaching again in Orvieto, Italy, September 11 – 16, 2018! Consider joining me on this wonderful journey.  Painting in Italy is offered through Adventure in Italy.  I have very fond memories of our painting workshop in 2014 creating colorful memories in our watercolor journals.  We had so much fun exploring Orvieto – what great food, wonderful wine tasting, friendly people and it was so inspiring to be surrounded by beautiful Italian art!
If you have taken a workshop with Adventures in Italy before, you will get a 10% discount for being a returning artist.

Let’s paint together!
Here are a few photos of our joyous time together:

The Best Travel Art Tips for Summer

The Best Travel Art Tips for Summer

Check out this great online article by Jeannine Stein –  “Best Travel Art Tips for Summer”.  She has put together 23 ideas from various artists, including me :), on how to create art-on-the-go!

Jeannine says – If you’ve seen the July/August 2017 issue of Cloth Paper Scissors, you may have noticed this on the cover: “23 Tips for Creating While You Travel.” Yes, we’ve loaded this travel and adventure-themed issue with a lot of techniques, projects, and ideas for creating art on the road, and we aim to deliver on our promise. So here are the 23 tips, and where in the magazine you can find them. We hope you find these useful for all your summer art adventures!


Fun Art Journal Page, Part 2

Fun Art Journal Page, Part 2

For one of the first time’s in my life, I am snow bound!  The high for the day is 11 degrees and snow is falling constantly.  What a great day to do some art but first I made chicken soup from scratch and a new found yummy cardamon cookie recipe.  Now I had time to enjoy finishing my Fun Art Journal Page.

Out my back door….
Finishing my art page:  After all the colors have dried and edges are finished, (see part 1)  I added the words “The journey of a 1000 miles starts with a single step”.  This is a quote from Lao Tzu.  I love this quote because it means that great things start from humble beginnings.

I wish that I could say I can do calligraphy because I think it is so beautiful.  The one time I tried it though, I realized quickly that I don’t have the patience to learn it.  In one of my art classes several years ago, one of my art students (Cindy was that you?) turned me on to Pilot Parallel Calligraphy Pens!  I will bring them to the class I am teaching at the Art & Soul Retreat in Portland, Art for the Soul.  
They come in 4 different nib sizes and lots of great colors of ink!  

 I used the Parallel Pen to write the quote on my journal page.  I hope you have fun trying this out!

More Stocking Stuffer Ideas for Watercolor Artists

I just adore this tiny watercolor palette!  It is called the Pocket Palette.  It comes with 14 iddy biddy magnetic pans to hold the paint that can be removed and replaced with other colors.  It is about the size of a business card (3 5/8″ x 2 1/2″) but holds lots of paint!

 Here it is waiting to be filled with new fresh watercolor paints.

I used it to paint this colorful background in my Gratitude Journal.  The mixing area was so wonderful – the paints did not bead up like they do on some palettes.  I was thinking what a wonderful gift this would be for the traveling artist!

Coloring Books Meet Mixed Media

Coloring Books Meet Mixed Media

The new Cloth, Paper Scissor’s Coloring Book,  Coloring Book Sketchbook, offers more than other coloring books.  Not only does it offer various mixed media art techniques, but it is a collection of sketches from many different artists, including one of my sketches of an old Italian door.  In her blog post, Jeannine Stein, shows how she uses mixed media to color my sketch of the door.
It was an honor to be asked to contribute sketches for the book and an honor to have Jeannine use mine sketch as a demo!

Here photos of how Jeannine Stein colored my door sketch:
