Sentient Being

A merry-go-round

Breeze carries a leaf swirling

Touches down at rest

Art Prescription: My sweet Finn was amazing today. Horses are sentient beings.

We sat together and he put his muzzle on my head as if to say I know you are sad and I’m here for you.

Sketching Fall Wildfowers

I had a lovely group this morning at the North Carolina Botanical Garden.

I showed them three techniques for capturing the essence of fall wildflowers.

Brush painting with watercolor.

Drawing with watercolor pencils and adding water.

Negative painting.

Bonus: pen and ink.

I did a demo of negative painting to capture these tiny asters. Then I added pen to suggest detail.

Thank you dear readers for your support. Art will pull me through.

Be well,

Bev

The Diva Chronicles

Hi friends,

So here I am moving into a North Carolina fall.

I really like hiking!

Me and Matisse agree to not talk politics.
I’m pretty happy getting belly pets.
And I like to play at bedtime!

Basically I’m a happy dog!

Love,

Diva

Art Journal

A place for your thoughts

Space to write, paint, or collage

Private diary.

Art Prescription: Did you keep a diary growing up? Was it locked? Did your sibling break into it? LOL

Now you can keep an art journal! A place for mental and visual expressions. Anything goes, and it’s just for you!

I love making these art journal kits and listed this one in my Etsy shop.
