I’ve been working on a series of watercolor paintings with inspirational messages. I’ve infused each one with Reiki energy to bring blessings and healing to the recipients of the artwork.
While my son was busy digging in the dirt and blowing bubbles outside this afternoon, my daughter and I decided to paint with watercolors at the dining table. We both commented on how relaxed we were. Nothing feels rushed with watercolors and time actually seems to slow down a bit. I find painting meditative and soothing to the soul. After my son came inside, dappled with dirt and wearing a smile, he asked to join us in painting. I believe that anyone, young or old, artist or not, can benefit from watercoloring.
Mark your calendars for the upcoming Spring Art Market put on by Art in the Highlands. I will be sharing a booth space with my friend and fellow artist, Karen Nielson. Stop by and see the variety of local art Denver has to offer. Please note that some artists take credit cards, but not all, so bring cash or dust off your checkbook and take it with you. See you there! facebook.com/ArtintheHighlands
Here is a handful of sketches I made today while waiting at the DMV. Sketching people, who are usually totally unaware they are being drawn, is great practice. They move around, someone stands in my way mid-sketch, or else the person I’m drawing gets up and walks away before I’m finished, so I have to be as quick as possible.
The spring-like weather we’ve been having this February week inspired me to dig out the soft pastels and add a splash of color to my day:
I will be at the Art in the Highlands Spring Art and Craft Market today, Saturday May 2 from 11am – 7pm at 3131 Osceola Street in Denver. I will have mixed media paintings, needle felted items, and fine art magnets and necklaces. Also, my 8 year old daughter, Aspen, is joining me this year! She’s selling her lovely needle felted flowers. She will be at the show from 11 am – 2pm. Stop by and say hello!
