There are ARTISTs and there are artists...




I want to give a shout out to my daughter in law, Christine, who is a professional artist.  She makes and sells some wonderfully detailed art

Then there are my three grand kiddies who luv to make artistic messes and are also very inspiring to their Gram'elle.  Wouldn't they like to get into their auntie's studio!  :O

Joshua (7) is demonstrating cool colours in this art assignment.  He was a tad disappointed with his limited palette even though green is his favourite hue. Hence the splash of warmer violet!  ;^)

Eliana (5) is always happy with the pinks and the warmer colours which seem to flatter her painting style.

Jolina, ( soon to be 3) luvs art and has her own idea of what to paint.  She is demonstrating that warm and cool colours make mud when they are combined.  :O

Now they haven't sold any art yet but perhaps they can add a small display to the summer lemonade stand. :)

Then there is me, who is somewhere in the middle and is happily dabbling in mixed media art here in her playroom.  The truth be known, I am a technique junky; lured on by the next and newest flash on the horizon. 


This coming week I am going to be a guest on the fire blog.  I have benefited hugely from this blog which I have been following for a few years.  I also believe that this opportunity has given a better focus to where I want to be as an Artist in the future.  I hope you'll come on over and let us light your fire!!!

In a family of artists it is nice to see each style and preferences early on. I see Joshua and Eliana are left handed showing to be very creative and artistic people. I shall look forward to your guest post on "Fire". Creative Artistic Bliss Elle Dear...

I can't believe how long it's been since I visited. I feel so bad, but life has definitely gotten in the way. I've been reading down a bit and saw your new spring rooms. A new kitchen? How awesome.

I love the vignette of your art and you are SO talented. I wish I could get the latest and greatest things but I am stuck in the past when it comes to supplies. That's why I admire YOUR blog posts so much.

I'll drop by the Fire blog, because I need to check up on them, too! I look forward to what you will be teaching this month.
