New Painting for 2014

Once the holidays come around, we all seem to lose track of time and it gets harder to post regularly.  I always seem to go in spurts and then no posts.  At least I am consistent, right? ;) haha!

Thought I would share a painting I am working on right now.  I really like how it is turning out so far.  Cannot wait to see what the finished piece will look like.

Happy New Year!! Thanks for looking! And as always….

Been Too Long Since Last Post….New Sketch!!

Oh my goodness!! My poor lil' blog! I have neglected it for the past 2 mths! Goodness!! I need to try and post more often here.  I have been busy and to be honest, posting on my FB page, hercreativesoul, is just so much easier for me.  Would love for you to visit it and if you are inclined to - Please LIKE my page :)
Thought I would share a recent sketch I did, where I am playing with the negative space in the piece.  I really like how it turned out.  Very quick and just tried not to think about it too much.
I promise not to neglect my blog :)  Thanks for looking!

30 Paintings in 30 Days #20 (and its a BIG one!!)

She is FINALLY done!! Wooooo!!! I have been working on this painting on/off for almost a year now.  I stopped at one point because I was working on it in a painting class, but when the class finished & my painting was not, I got a little intimidated.  I didn't know if i could continue.  I then worked and finished up her dress - no face, shoe, hand.  So today that is what I finally finished up.  For my first painting of this type, I am pleased with the results.  She will be going up for sale, possibly, soon.  Keep checking my FB page, hercreativesoul, and/or my Etsy store, hercreativesoul.  (you can click on the links to take you to each)  Thanks for looking!!

30 Paintings in 30 Days #17

Woo!! Number 17!! Did this one because its Fall and I am so ready for some cooler weather! I really like how it turned out.  Tried to create illusion of falling/blowing leaves from the tree to the ground.  Used an oldie, but goodie, technique, sponge painting.  Really creates nice depth and use of colors that is hard to replicate with a brush.  Thanks for looking!

30 Paintings in 30 Days #16

In honor of Autumn, I did 2 paintings this morning.  Used an old technique I had almost forgotten about - sponge painting. I really like the effect it gives the leaves.  Creates lots of depth & colors.
