Breonna Taylor

✏👸✏👸✏👸 HI LOVELIES! SOMETIMES WE MUST REMEMBER THAT A SIMPLE PENCIL IS QUEEN OR KING OF THE STUFF TO SKETCH AS ROXANNA DID.

Roxanna Rendon Agin

An homage to Breanna, I didn’t know her but she had a beautiful smile, she worked at a job she loved as an EMT, left this life too young. I know when I was 26, my life was only beginning.

Her mother, Tamika Palmer, told The Louisville Courier Journal that Taylor was a young woman who adored her family above all else and who had made plans to succeed.

Officers from the Lousiville Metro Police Department’s Criminal Interdiction Division used a battering ram to break down the door and rushed into the house on Springfield Drive at 1 a.m., waking Taylor and her boyfriend, Walker. Walker shot at the officers, wounding one, and the three who entered fired some 22 shots back, according to Eggert, Walker’s defense attorney; Taylor was shot eight times and died.

Eggert told local news station WDBR that Walker was acting in self-defense and said…

Opposed Concept and Process

❄ WELL LOVELIES! SKETCHES ALSO ARE USEFUL TO REMEMBER OTHERS SITUATIONS OR SEASONS LIKE THIS.

Concept

I was first inspired by cold wind and how it can be both refreshing and also unwelcome. It’s also wildly unpredictable and can change directions in an instance. The emotion I wanted to portray was obvious discomfort, but in that discomfort, peace.

Process

I started out with a reference photo of an upturned head and created a sketch with a mechanical pencil. I prefer mechanical purely out of lazy motivation, I hate having to constantly sharpen drawing pencils. As for line weight, I use pen or paint later in the process. For her body, I tried to capture a relaxed position, returning to the theme of peace. Next, I rolled an eraser across the pencil lines to erase most of them but leave enough for me to see the basic outlines. I used a magenta colored pencil for the finalized lines, but if I could go back in time…

What would it be like

If you could flap your wings, fly

Soar over the earth.

Art Prescription: Watching birds, I always wonder what it would be like to fly. Just lift off a branch and soar.

This morning I used some leaves and plastic wrap to create a pattern.

I also used some acrylic paint to imprint leaves.

Here are my results which will be used to make hand-bound journals.

Embroidered purse, koruommeltu pikkukaukku

HELLO BEAUTIES. AS YOU CAN SEE ART ALWAYS BEGINS WITH A SKETCH.

HandmadebyLiisa

This is a purse I sent to a dear friend for a birthday present after she moved back to her home country. The frame is a little battered (sorry C!) since I didn´t have the right tools at the country.

I used some left over mauve linen and chose some embroidery cotton that would make a nice colour scheme. With a paler fabric I could have drawn my layout straight onto the material but here I had to sew the flowers on without any guidelines.

The design is my own with inspiration from Pinterest (as usual). The letters are embroidered mainly with french knots.

Happy birthday C! 💝💐

Inspired by Nina’s gouache painting, above, and Frank Tassone’s #Haikai challege to choose our own summer kigo.

Nina’s painting made me think of flowers and butterflies.  And when I saw the photo of Martha Graham dancing in the Times, I felt immediately that she must be holding the moon.

Summer solstice this year coincides with a solar eclipse of the new moon.  Magic is afoot!

You’re invited to the Fiber Arts Symposium!

HI LOVELIES! SOMETIMES AN ACCESSORY CAN BE THE CHARMING TOUCH AND THIS IS SOMETHING MORE THAN A SIMPLE CUFF. THIS A PIECE OF MIHAELA’S ART.

Learn Polymer Clay

Hello dear friends!

I hope you’re well and that you’re immersed into creative activities. I surely am someone that’s all in into the development of my creative skills. I’ve recently learned to machine sew and I totally love it. And the amount of machine sewn masks, tote bags, pillow cases that I have at home are growing exponentially. And my creativity is intensively stimulated as well. And I think that when adding new skills to your creative toolbox, you have even more ways to express your creativity and to turn ideas into finished objects… which is the creator’s dream…

And this is why I’m inviting you to attend the Fiber Arts Symposium. It’s a great opportunity to add more skills to your toolbox. And there’s such a plethora of amazing classes on fiber, yarn, embroidery, paper, etc (see the Schedule on the Fiber Arts Symposium site), that you’ll surely find…
