Have you ever feel a call from your heart that you want to paint badly? Just like sometime we are craving for a piece of chocolate or an ice cream. I had the urge this morning, so this is what I made as taking a break from my ongoing book project. Now I feel better and will go back to work. Don't laugh at me, isn't it fun to be an artist?! :)
It's been busy with my children's book projects. I am finally done the big one for HarperCollins, and then moved on to another toddler book for Nimbus Publishing, both books will be published in early 2015! I can't wait to see the print copies, just wish if it could be happened tomorrow.
In the meanwhile, I sometime took break to do more mixed media paintings. Here are two I am quite happy with lately. : ) You can also view more of my painting here.
July is the most beautiful and fruity month, it inspires my painting of today~
I am back to paint after my trip to London and Paris. This is what I did today. I hope to share more about my trip and some photos I took during my journey. I am also working on the final art for a children's book for HarperCollins. It is a busy summer! Too many things and ideas, too little time. : )
This is my dear brown bird. :-)
I started with my personal collage painting this morning, it made me feel fresh and inspiring. Now I am getting back to work on my project! :-)
Fun time with my mixed media painting today~ LOVE!
I think this is a self-portrait…. :-)
I received a gift of glass tube flower vase from my friend few years ago, it's been set on my desk next to my monitor. Today I cut some fresh flowers from my backyard and place on this cute vase, plus adding a painting I did from yesterday. "Generous" - a word I should remember everyday. Again, it does not have to cost a lot to make life beautiful~ :)
* There is a magnet pink ball holds my mini painting. This ball bouncing crazily to keep me fun exercise in my studio. Of course, my cats love it the most!
Inspired by MATS course I started creating mixed media painting 2-3 times a week. I have no idea what will these paintings do other then sitting on my wall shelves, I just enjoy to paint during my break in between projects. But slowly I have great feeling about it, I think they are going to turn into something awesome in the future. We will know when time goes by…. : )
I am taking a break in between 2 book projects. What did I do? I had a great lunch and coffee, hang out with friends, check out few local shops and flower nurseries, then go come to create my 60 mins painting. This is what I made, I am quite happy with it~
