Dolphin Play

Oh how I love the ocean and its' creatures.  I am working on some sketches of dolphins and oceans for a project I have been commissioned to do.  It is definitely a process in meditation for me.  As I work I can hear the waves in the background and the chatter of the dolphins, so I am transported in a sense to the ocean I so love.
The background and dolphin were done with NeoII crayons and pen, then finishing with some acrylic white for the splash at the tail as he comes out of the water.  The background is crumpled tin foil with the Design Masters "TintIt".  Hope your weekend is filled with magic and songs. Hugs

roses roses roses

How much is your art linked to your life?  Hmmmm, interesting and most of the time I cannot separate one from the other.  I have had an insight lately though,  If I am working in my studio and hit a brick wall, I will walk away and address something else totally unrelated, likewise if I I hit a brick wall with life, I will throw myself into my art, most of the time without thought, I will just jump in and do it, Whichever the situation at some time answers will come that I had not thought of and that gives me some peace and ability to follow through.  So I laughed out loud as this card came together, it is jumbled, busy, intense, lines, circles, colors, how in the world could you get a lesson from this card?  Slow down, breath deep, don't fly and land at the same time, rofl.
Hope you are living your dream and creating your life, walk slowly and enjoy! Hugs

the card needed some words, hugs

A Happy Birthday Card

Playing with watercolor paper, brushes and PhotoShop.  This dogwood was "puppet warped" in PS to give it a new look and then colored with NeoII colors.  Puppet warp is such a great tool.  I went to my storage unit earlier this week and dug out some of my favorite water color brushes, don't underestimate the beauty of a great water color brush.  Happy weekend everyone, hugs
