In the Works
There is such a feeling of excitement when October rolls around. A month just for challenging inky growth. Inspiring. While I don’t follow the daily prompts, I’ve been challenging growth in two different ways. . A larger piece to be finished by the end of the month and a mini started and finished each day. On October 31, I‘ll have a special release happening of all the minis created this month!! Today’s look is the start to finish of one of the mini’s created last week. 🤓 .

Can you feel the sensation? You are drifting above the world. You are strong and brave as you move forward soaring high. . I often feel myself facing a lot of fear. Fear at the unknown. Fear that I must have the knowledge and bravery before I move forward in next steps. While waiting to find those things, I’ve remained stuck. Until this year. This year, I decided to say no to fear. Yes, I still feel it, and sometimes it holds me back longer than I like, BUT the mindset is changing. I find myself walking blindly into the next steps. Scary but freeing. AND that freeing leaves me feeling as tho I’m soaring ... braver ... And a little bit more boldly as I take the next steps with life and my art. . These mini feathers are the reminder of the bravery we each have within to move past fear so we can soar. ———————————— Mini feather originals are available. 🥰
Tonight, I just want to say … Thank you. Thank you for your feedback, for your kind and encouraging words, for your orders, and for the likes. I know it doesn’t seem like much, but it is a lovely feeling for an artist to know when their art has touched you in someway. I’m delighted to be on this beautiful art journey with you. 🥰 . The artwork featured tonight is Reminiscing Blooms. As you may have seen many of these blooms greeting your feed this summer, I can’t help but feel lost in a joyful memory of being up close to these beautiful flowers that left a HUGE spark of inspiration on my heart. They whisper beauty to me. What do they whisper to you?
Stippling? Hatching? Scribbling? Hatching? . Let’s have some fun with a little game! Comment below with your ONE most favorite pen technique. I’ll tell you a bit about your personality based on on your favorite technique. 😉🤓
Go out, go out I beg of you And taste the beauty of the wild. Behold the miracle of the earth With all the wonder of a child. —Edna Jaques . I love how nature has an unending source of inspiration waiting for us at each and every season. Over the years, as I took walks in nature, mushrooms weren’t things I kept my eyes on the lookout for. Now, as I take nature hikes, I walk S L O W just so I can spot the next subject to be captured in my studio. Makes me wonder, what do I miss now that I will one day find incredible irresistible… . Whether you are an artist or an admirer, what sorts of nature do you find most intriguing?
You cannot dream yourself into a character; you must hammer and forge yourself one. ―Henry David Thoreau ✍🏼 We see all the amazing talent around us. Something I think that is not seen is the hours of practice that goes into developing and perfecting our gifts. Practice is just as important for an artist as it is for an athlete. Nurturing your talent takes time. But it’s super exciting to watch as you blossom your talent into something more magical and beautiful when you take the time to practice. ✍🏼 This month, I’m dedicating at LEAST 15 minutes a day to drawing and have decided for a goal to finish one larger [12 in x 18 in] creation by the end of this month. Would you like to see looks at piece throughout this month in my stories or keep it a surprise until November 1? 🥰
