Today, or more precisely tonight, I am getting a jump start on the weekly What's on Your Work Desk photo sharing that the ever so nice Julia Dunnit hosts on her blog, Stamping Ground. Each week we post a picture of our work spaces and then are invited to go see what others are doing. One week I found a great jeweler and managed to score a cool, and reasonably priced pair of earrings from her Esty shop. You just never know what you will find.
This week I started Lifebook 2013, a year long journey through art taught by Tam (can't seem to locate her last name on her blog) and a number of other folks. I've taken classes from a couple of the teachers and enjoyed those and even though I've only watched one video from Tam, I'm thinking I'm really going to like it.
Our first warm-up was drawing a whimsical Fairy Art Mother. Because all of this is new to me, I practiced a couple of times with my new water soluble crayons in my small art journal. OH MY. They are just TONS of fun. I can tell I want more colors already.
Since this is OUR Fairy Art Mother, she says nice things to us like
And although I can't draw yet, I sure do like color, so I used just about every one of them to draw her...
It's going to be a good year!!
