Didn’t Quit

STUNNING! HELLO BEAUTIES, IN MY OPINION THIS SKETCH OF AN STARRY SKY IS SUBLIME. LET’S FEEL ITS COLOURS!

A Creative PTSD Gal

Water(color) Therapy

I did have a hell of a day at work which included judgment and bullying by coworkers. I had planned to edit my short story and post then do some watercolor but I was lucky I just didn’t lay in my bed and cry.

Instead, I came home and started dinner. Chopping the taters was a start to relieving stress then moved to folding laundry and picking up. After dinner, I decided to sit down and really practice some watercolor galaxies. I had watched several tutorials and jumped in. I think I ripped up 4 starts and decided that the 5th one I’m going to just deal with it. The stress of failing at my painting faded rather quickly. I found myself smiling and concentrating on paint placements.

What I learned:

  1. Cheap palettes of paint was actually a great buy. Basically, I suck and need practice.
  2. I…

Grilled Vegetable Platter

HI BEAUTIES, BETWEEN SOME SKETCHES WE’VE GOT THIS EDIBLE ART. HAPPY SUNDAY!

Fabulous Fare Sisters

This classic dish is mouth-wateringly delicious! The great thing about it is that you can make it again and again with all different kinds of veggies…one day it could be eggplant & peppers with red onions, another day make it with asparagus and zucchini…you’ve got grilled broccoli or cauliflower mixed with so many different combinations…it’s endless! Sometimes I drizzle a balsamic glaze over the platter and it adds a bit a sweetness. Any way you make it it’s fabulous!

Slow Italy

HAPPY SATURDAY, SISTERS! LET’S TAKE A WALK AND SKETCH COBBLESTONES 👫👬👭✏📓

Raincoast Studio

Lion door paint 450fullblog

Day One in Rome must have been a bit of an adjustment for my sweet, patient, globetrotting friends. From the second I clunked out the door my eyes were filled with the spectacle of light and texture and the astonishing age of ancient stones  – and I did not want to miss a single inch of it.

Our street, Lisa, Paolo and Max Our street, Lisa, Paolo and Max

I probably took 45 minutes just to get to the end of our block – and not only because of the cobbles (have I mentioned the cobbles??) I couldn’t roll five feet without stopping for photos, and I’m pretty sure that is not the usual rate of exploration for my friends. But no one rushed me, and in fact we all found our rhythm – Max ranging ahead to scout, Paolo a bit ahead subtly directing Vespas and cars around us, and Lisa – well she was…

Live without dining?

Old and new – animal portraits I have done

GOOD MORNING SISTERS! TODAY WE’VE GOT SOME WONDERFUL EXAMPLES OF SKETCHES ABOUT ANIMALS. HAPPY THURSDAY !

Ruth's Artwork

The general consensus seems to be that many of you to enjoy the series of small pen and ink/ watercolor animals I have been doing lately. I want to say thank you for all of the encouraging words but it has gotten me to thinking about how my artwork has been changed by time and experience.  I got out of graduate school in 1977, but hadn’t created much artwork in the several years following my disastrous art experiences in college.  With a degree in ethology, it was quite natural for me to go back to animal art when I finally had the inspiration and time to do it.  I did a lot of ink drawings with a nib pen back then.

A couple of ago years, when I set up my permanent studio and picture wall, I looked over the animal art I had done in the late 70’s and…
