My own inspiration "playing with acrylic inks-an abstract"  I like the little black and orange images which evolved.
Inspired by Yvonne Morell lesson on doing "Ladies with Character"
I did this acrylic upon  a 12'x16' sand and gesso canvas base  by first drawing the characters with charcoal.  I named it "Friends out to Lunch-waiting for their Table -each with their own thought." I loved giving them facial and body character so mch fun.
It's been 6 months since I have done any artwork mainly because I was  in Florida for the winter. Now that I am home again I have gotten out my artist hat a due to inspiration from Internet Art Groups and Workshops that I have been viewing.

This is an 12x16 canvas of acrylics and oil pastels  (Inspiration Lucy Jorden)  Her inspiring words "take risks enjoy yourself."

I have had this blog almost 8 years now using it mostly of a means of record keeping of the art I have done. It is surprising to see how much art I have done as I keep looking back by checking past posts. Doing Art is meditative for me as well as challenging myself to learn things unknown to me. I do art not daily but sporadically so I am surprised by my productivity
