Fragmented Influence

Fragmented Influence. Pastel, watercolor, ink, and digital mixed media.

I’ve been busy, so I thought having the ‘Mixed Media Monday’ prompt would help me keep up with posting to the blog. But I think I’ll just post when I can and make sure it’s at least weekly. I’ve been doing more design work and less painting but I just bought myself fresh art supplies and I know I’ll be experimenting with them, so I’ll try to share some fun stuff here. 🙂

Hope you’re having a lovely April!

We live in a rainbow of chaos. ― Paul Cézanne

Mixed Media Monday: Curiosity Arises

Curiosity Arises. Acrylic, ink, and digital mixed media.

Every Monday, I’m going to share some colorful new artwork made from a wide variety of art media. This allows me to utilize all the art supplies I have on hand, get creative and messy, and give you something fun to see every week, no matter how busy I am with other things.

In case you missed my note, this will be replacing ‘Finger Painting Friday’. Thanks for supporting me while I create! Have a wonderful week, my friends. 🙂
