Exploring The Abyss #mermay2019

The month of May is almost over and so the #mermay Art Challenge.  I love painting mermaids and sadly this year I had no time, I was only able to create one new mermaid to include in my existing Mermaids Collection.  I painted only one but I am very happy with my painting and who said that time is over for creating Mermaids? Yes the challenge is over but I can create new Mermaids whenever I want! 😉

Today I am excited to share with you myNew Release” of my Mermaid painting having the title  “Exploring The Abyss”  I painted in my traditional and signature style watercolor and ink. If you followed my recent posts on Instagram you remember this mermaid because I was showing my work in progress with some sneak peek,  from the pencil…

Me in Mixed Media

HELLO DEARS! TODAY IT’S TIME FOR RENOIR. THE GREAT MASTER AND ALSO FOR THIS WORK WITH POEM MADE BY PAT. CONGRATS!

Patsy's Creative Corner

Hello Friends!

This was a fun piece to do. I wrote this poem called SHE WAS NOT ME over 20 years ago when I was going through healing from various instances of sexual abuse in my youth and 20’s. I didn’t want to type out the whole poem in this post so you’ll have to enlarge the photo to read it.

I have been wanting to do something creative with some of the poems I wrote in the past. So I was looking through them the other day and decided to do this with it.

I used a couple of my favorite Renoir portraits that I saved from an old calendar of his paintings. One is of a young lady and the other a little girl. To make them mine, I painted over parts of them to help portray who I believed I was in the past. And of course…

2.1 Develop a Visual Response

🍇🍋🍒HELLO DEARS! THE TREAT IS AN SKETCH FOR EACH PIECE OF FRUIT.

Contemporary Context

Task (extract): Using your trend book, your descriptive words and your gathered objects, develop a large body of visual research that explores the aesthetic, atmosphere, ideas and narratives within your trend using a range of methods: • drawing, using varied media, tools and approaches on a range of scales • collage, photography and any other image-making approaches • three-dimensional responses and small-scale making (three-dimensional drawing).

Summary of sketchbook work

I started by gathering my original palette and images and supplemented this with additional imagery and objects – with autumn approaching, different ‘harvests’ are ripening which have added depth to my photographic sources.  They also add a personal element as these are from my garden; it will be interesting to see if this proves a distraction from my trend-led brief or enriches it.  Added to this were the original descriptive words including ‘fresh, rich, ordered, invigorating’ and so on; following…

Stinging Nettle Tea and Tea Set Art

☕👓YES MY SISTERS! A NETTLE OR EVERYTHING CAN BE A PERFECT MOTIF.

Red Dust Art

I’ve written out a recipe for nettle tea and some data on how to go foraging for stinging nettles with links. If you don’t feel like going for a hike you can buy stinging nettle tea at just about any store that carries herb teas. I like the tea because it helps with inflammation from fibromyalgia and I am interested in learning how to live off the land. I like to think I have an alternative to the grocery store because I really hate shopping. It’s so much fun taking a walk in the woods and gathering my food rather than driving to a store and seeing the same old veggies. Here is a small article aboutNettle tea benefits.
This painting didn’t turn out as good as I imagined it. I’ve never drawn or painted such a complicated teacup or pot and I have done very little still-life artwork…
