" Hydrangeas II "

    Second study. This time with acrylics.
    I try to force myself not to pay attention too much otherwise I get   
    lost in the details.
    Gosh it's hard to go against your natural habits !

    LET GO ! LET GO !  is what I hear.

" Hydrangeas "

       This week's challenge for Different Strokes from different Folks.
I enjoy reflections of all kinds.
I am still playing with my watercolor pencils. I might try a different study with a different medium on this week's challenge.

If I don't get a chance to tell everyone that stops by,

" I got tagged "

I got tagged By IRIT BOURLA ,which at first I did not know the rules. But now I do.

So here goes :
1. I lived in Switzerland Lausanne and Geneva for 16 years , am fluent French also.
2. In my class for 4 years at the Art-Decoratif in Geneva was the Princess of Liechtenstein          ( she's very nice)
3. I hitchhiked though Italy and Turkey at 18 ( I don't recommended it now, I was lucky)
4. My father combed Jackie Kennedy's hair for her wedding to John Kennedy.
5. I was born in New York and lived on 5th Avenue 16th floor, in front of Central Park for 12 years. (It had a beautiful view)
6. When I was young I had a parade on my street for my birthday every year. I thought it was for me (my birthday is February 22, G. Washington B-day) see # 5
7. No matter the situation rich or poor I am so blessed with family and friend's love and that is what counts to me.

The 7 I am tagging


This week's challenge For Karin Jurick
she has this week an explanation for sending your artwork to her blog or other sites and I am one of them that had a hard time with this. But I am taking a photoshop class so I can learn more but I'm not there yet.
I did not want to do this one but forced myself,  it's not so good but the part that got fun was adding the fish after I turned it around .

" boat on the water "

                          I don't know if I like the red house so cropping it to show only the left side of the picture is probably better   ?

It was a test after all. I conclude I really like those pencils ! 

" My reflection "

                                            5 x 5.5           Watercolor pencils

I just bought some watercolor pencil which I haven't used in years. I needed to play ! and try them.

I read this phrase last night and thought , yes this why I paint , draw, create.

His earth and us are a beautiful expression of HIS ability. We are co-laborer with the Master Creator.

" To embrace the privilege of creative expression is consistent with being made in the image and likeness of our creator. "

God wants to answer our desires:
John 16:24 ".......that our Joy may be full"

Pg 34 " Dreaming with God " by Bill Johnson

No matter what we do in life we have an ability to bless , give and receive love ; those virtues bring Joy to others and us, in our work and play.
Blessings to all.
