Two new Coloring Pages: “Breathe” inspiration, and “On the Lake”

I created a landscape coloring page, which I’ll be excited to put into color next week:

“On the Lake” is available as a free downloadable coloring page.

Also, I’m attempting to create a collection of “Inspirational Thoughts” coloring pages, and created a new one this week:

“Breathe”

“Simplicity”

 

 

 

Continental Sunrise Coloring Page

I’ve created a black and white coloring page of Continental Sunrise, the acrylic and ballpoint painting that I made last summer after a cross-country train trip.  The sun is rising over the Rocky Mountains, and the high elevation plains roll in the foreground.

Continental Sunrise is available as a coloring page, in pdf format and in jpg.

Canoe Ride is available on the free coloring download page.

Equinox Update: Markets and Gardening

Pumpkin Night

Wild Harvest: wild leeks, morels, and fiddleheads

Spring is finally here!  After all that pining for warmer weather for the last five months, temperatures are rising, there are longer periods between showers, and my work is starting to pile up…

I’m all set for the Bellingham Farmer’s Market this year, starting with a practice run at the last winter market last week, and officially starting Saturday, April 1st.  I’ve got several gardens coming along, and every windowsill of my apartment is full of seedlings.  With all of this going on, I still plan to have a new art piece for you to look at every week!  Happy Spring.

Mandala Painting in Watercolor and Ink with Video

I was feeling like going back to my zendala days (Zendoodle-mandala), so I created one on camera.  The whole process took about eight hours to do, but of course I did it over several days.

I used Sakura Micron ink for the lines with an 03 tip.  The watercolor was my kid’s old Crayola set from school.  Really.

 

 

 

You can make great art with any medium, with enough love.  Enjoy the video of the process in time-lapse!

New Coloring Pages, Mixed Media Painting

There are times when we all feel like we’ve accomplished very little, but look back to find that we really did quite a bit of work.  In the last several weeks, I’ve been continuing to create 2108 calendar coloring pages, with my goal being to have them finished and available for free download by July.  Meanwhile, I created a couple more Farmer’s Market coloring pages:

Apples

Zinnias

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Other Farmer’s Market coloring pages in the series I’m creating for a 20-page book:

I’m also contemplating starting a series of mindfulness or meditation quote coloring pages:

And I completed a mixed media painting which I’m not very excited about.  I started to record the process for a video, but realized halfway through that I was pretty unhappy with it.

Rolling Hills River

I’ll admit it, sometimes my work bombs.  But it’s okay, because I will paint again!

 

Horizon Calling in Acrylics, Ink, and Colored Pencil- with video

Horizon Calling

I was compelled to create a painting at a moment’s notice this week, and caught the whole thing on camera; interestingly, some of my favorite works were created in a short amount of time and with little effort.

This painting was created in response to hearing about my maternal grandmother’s passing.  I wanted to create an image that would resonate with her– she was fond of large mountains, being born and raised in the Rockies.  I tried to incorporate a bit of local flora (aspen and lodgepole pine) in the foreground with a dramatic landscape in the background.

If you’re interested, check out the video of the process:

New Coloring Pages: Creating a “Garden” Series

Impromptu Acrylic Painting: Fire Eagle

I’m really excited about this new painting.  As I’ve described in the video about the creation of this painting, I didn’t plan it before I started.  That’s why there’s no coloring page yet.  Maybe I should do that soon…
