SOMETHING DIFFERENT

For months now I have been trying to take Mindy Murphy Lacefield's class "Paint Your Story". Between work, and jewelry, and life, it is taking me forever and a day, but I am enjoying the process and learning many new things about myself, pushing myself in new directions , sometimes uncomfortable. That is good though, because I need to grow in other artistic ways, I need to know what I really like and what I don't. I am always very attracted to work like Mindy's, but have a very hard time expressing myself like that, I am searching for a way to learn to do that. Whether I will always take that path remains to be seen. Right now it is very freeing, fun, and playing! These are a few pieces we are asked to do as prompts to prepare backgrounds for paintings. Some were done on magazine pages, and all were done quickly, like a child, sometimes with fingers. If I had more space in my house , and didn't have to worry about clean up so much, I would do this everyday! These make great collage pages also when torn up! 




Well, what do you think? I am having a blast, and may take this up full time? 

I will share faces another time! Thanks for taking the time to visit! I love and appreciate your time and comments!

I love these, I too would love the time to do this collage type work. I will have to schedule it in because if I wait for time to present itself it won't happen.

Perfect! I recently discovered Mindy Lacefield and am in that on-line class, too. I get too carried away and just start getting lots of paint on the paper and I love it! So glad you're getting joy from the process!

I am in the midst of taking Mindy's classes; both Paint Your Story and Free Spirit. She's really helped me loosen up and love her little characters!

I really love what you did, here, I can tell you had such fun with this! Who knew we'd be painting with our fingers again! xxi

Fantastic artwork! I love the wonderful colors. It's good to work out of our comfort zone. I need to do that more often. This looks like fun.

trying something new is always exciting...you are such a versatile artist dear Sharon...

abstract art is something I am always tempted by as there are times I create backgrounds that I really don't want to cover up ... if you know what I mean ...

it does look like you are having a great time and that is as it should be = Brava!

Happy Autumn weekend to you ♥
