My Art Desk Day 10

One of my constant struggles exists between my art life and my yoga life. Ever since I stepped into the world of teaching yoga, art making has been pushed to the background. I would prefer the art to be more foreground. I love working at my desk and in my studio...

My Art Desk Day 9

Worked on the landscape in the back for too many days. It lost it's spontaneity. A lot going on in the home front, so I wasn't focused and oddly enough, that led to overworking. I would like the whole image to be looser. My decision is to try again. In the previous...

My Art Desk Day 8

Today's project was a portrait of Ellessia. She has been asking me to do one- so I took up the challenge. It has been about 20 years since I have done a portrait! And the really funny thing about this one is that it felt like I was doing a self portrait! Ellessia...

My Art Desk, Day 7

It has been one week since I decided to post a picture a day of what I am working on at my art desk. I like the accountability of this project, and it also seems more meaningful to me than posting on Social Media. Here is my desk today. I taught a class this morning,...

My Art Desk Day 6

I was able to work quietly all morning. I have longed for that quiet work space all weekend, so admittedly, I have been a bit grumpy at home. I finished the mountain landscape scene today and I am quite happy with it. It is a rare moment when I feel good about...

My Art Desk Day 4

Today the Art Desk holds a landscape in mixed media: Watercolor, ink, and even acrylic paint! I have masked out some spots that I hope to pen in later (trees, some highlights for snow). The effect I am going for is energetic, cool colors with a few splashes of warm...

My Art Desk: Day 3

Today I worked on another floral. I returned to the thought "Maybe florals are not for me..." Not sure why I feel moved to work on florals. Maybe I just long for flowers and color. I then had the vision to use some collaging paper and see if that helped me to enjoy it...

My Art Desk, Day 2

Day 2 of the "My Art Desk" project. One picture, every day, of what the top of my work space looks like. Today you can see a large floral I worked on yesterday, after I told myself "no more flowers!" - I couldn't resist. This is from a group of pictures a friend took...

Art Desk: January 30

My Art Desk today. I am working on allowing myself to be expressive in the paint, rather than thinking I need to paint in a realistic way. I love wave forms. Someone recently told me God is a Wave... and I realized the deep truth of that statement, and the fact that...
