...it's time


I love watercolor.  It is the medium that defines me as an artist/illustrator.  Right now i am playing with Adirondack Color Wash and Distress Ink reinkers from Ranger as watercolor paints.  Since both products are water based, they can be thinned and stretched with a water soaked paint brush.  The concentration and intensity of color is a perfect base for an art journal spread.

..."it's time"....Reflecting with hope, seeking good changes in 2011.....
"One day you just woke up in the sunshine 
and decided to have the courage to change everything."

  6. This is so beautiful and I really am amazed each time I see what you can do with a white pen- it always looks so effortless and smooth. Perhaps down the road a few tutorials?? :-)

  7. Hi! I found you on the blog hop! I love your work! I've challenged myself to do some new things in 2011. Blogging and working on my journal on a regular basis are at the top of the list. It's nice to see such wonderful examples of both.
    Blessings to you in 2011!
