ARTsy wednesday

ARTsy wednesday

last week when i was sick as can be and could only maneuver between the bed and the couch, i was trying to get as much rest as possible but also feeling extremely anxious and guilty that a new year had begun and that i had done nothing creative yet

so i decided to grab the box of embroidery yarn that we have had for years and start stitching over the small acrylic paintings i had recently done

it was an easy and clean way to be in bed but to be doing something at the same time

the process of stitching, mending, joining together and building on what is already there came accidentally but it’s exactly how twenty twenty was supposed to start for me

on a personal level and on a creative level

happy ARTsy wednesday friends!

ARTsy wednesday

the big crafty is this saturday and sunday and Lilian will be participating again like she did last year

she will be selling her original blockprints, prints of original paintings/watercolors and stickers based on original drawings (like the one above)

she did so well last year

hope she does even better this year

ARTsy wednesday

been slowly adding to my collection of acrylic portraits

i think twenty nineteen will go down as the year when i painted the most faces and that makes me feel happy and accomplished

happy ARTsy wednesday friends!

this girl is on her way to her new home in seattle

ARTsy wednesday

well, i bought a pack of eight small canvases and i said i was going to paint a small collection of acrylic portraits and i did it!

i know it may not seem like a lot but as most of you must know yourselves, time is a luxury these days

i compromised my morning walk/run in order to paint but it was totally worth it!

it felt wonderful to paint every day and to be able to fill a canvas with something

i may buy another pack of eight canvases and keep going….

happy ARTsy wednesday friends!

ARTsy wednesday

wow! friends, the last artsy wednesday post was… well, june of this year but, the one before that was may of twenty eighteen!

do you remember long ago when they were a weekly thing?

anyway, it was rainy and gloomy yesterday so i decided to stay in pajamas and doodle a little

it had been a very very long time and it felt great once i got passed the nervous stage of trying to remember how to draw again

it always feels good to turn a blank piece of paper/canvas into something

happy ARTsy wednesday friends!

a morning in wynwood

how about some amazing (and free) art on huge walls to brighten up the week?

you guys know how much i love wynwood

and even if it is just a quick drive by, i need to visit/see it every time we are in miami

on this particular morning, we started with acai bowls and took our time looking at all the new art and shops (not pictured)

hope you are all having a great week so far!
