|Ski Girl …she was painted with everything I could find! - Mixed Media|
First, I sketched out the ski girl. I wanted her to be flying and wanted her to be warm. She is both…the bright white sun snowflake keeps her joyful.
I used acrylic paints, inks, markers, scrap paper, stencils, paper punches, mod podge, my brayer and just kept adding layers to create the background. When I was happy with the background, I painted my girl, then collaged her onto the background. I want to still work a bit on her eyes so they pop!

She is my January Girl…now on to February!
Stop Back Later for "Live with a Thankful Heart" Repainted and the newest version
I say that but I never know what I will create from 'my happy place' and that's what I love so much about painting…it's the surprise!
Thanks for stopping by…Christine Quimby@blogspot.com
painting a message that "kindness matters"
When you think of it...time is all we really have; make each year, month, week, day and minute count. Do the things you love to do. Share kindness and pay others with your time. Do something for nothing. Some think of it as karma. and it circles back to you.
|Singing Songs of What's Ahead!|
Move over art world...okay just a bit...as I am joining the circle. I signed up for LifeBook 2014 with Tamara LaPorte. She has a joyous way about teaching. I've been interested in making art for some time now and plan on giving more time to my passion.
I am also new at blogging. Do all of you really read all this stuff? I am hopeful to include pages on art, reading, teaching and cooking. Hope you check back and leave a comment to let me know what you like or dislike? I am going to have lots of links, pictures, videos ....wonder where it all might lead. Thanks for reading and don't be shy...check back as it will be a colorful, mindful and nutritious journey.
