Sorry for Doing The Disappearing Act

It has been a very crazy year which almost all know about. But between my husband stopping our business for the obvious reasons and caring for my Mom, that was 87 years old. She lived in a little house we built next door to our home so when and if she needed help we would be close by. Well, the day came in late May that we knew there was some kind of issue going on with her and on June 15th we were told that not only did she have bladder cancer she also had cancer all over her left side of her body. She had decided on her own that she was not treating it and was ready to go to heaven when the Lord called out her number. But as time went on more care was needed and eventually Hospice Care. It was pretty much a full-time job for myself and my husband taking care of her and things around the houses.

If you follow me on Facebook or subscribed to my YouTube Channel then you have seen a few videos I posted of some paintings, done mostly to just relax and get my head together with everything that we were going through. So if you don’t follow me you might check out both of the links.

I am still not doing as much art as I would like but I still do graphic design off and it is how I making a full time living from home. But I do have plenty of art and pieces to start adding to my shop here. I gave up my Amazon Handmade and Etsy store as I feel that adding pieces to the store here will allow me the option of giving the best pricing I can give without a middleman taking their percentage.

The holidays are coming up and there will be people that are looking for that special one of a kind gift to give. So I hope to be adding pieces at least once a week if not more often and have an array of different art pieces available.

If you have any questions, feel free to email me at yavappl@gmail.com and I will get back to you as soon as possible. Besides, if you are local to the Prescott/Yavapai Country area I will be offering free pick and possible delivery.

Hope you all stay safe and enjoy your weekend.

Did a Chat At The Artist Haven with Tish

This last Tuesday I did a chat with Tish at The Artist Haven and had a really good time doing this with her. Doing that time I did two acrylic pours on glass trivets that I actually wasn’t sure on the gold one if I liked but after drying I was really happy with them and will be adding resin to them once they are ready for resin.

You can find her videos here.

And here are photos of the finished paintings before the resin will be applied.

So I am doing some painting here and there along with taking some wonderful classes with Sandra Lett. And learning more about painting with a brush and have had some wonderful outcomes. The last one I did was a colorful eye that I will be doing one more time as I sold the first one.

Enjoy your week and if I ever get caught up I will be adding more to the shop here.

All New on YouTube – New Art Work

It has been way to long since I wrote on my blog. I guess with Covid going on it has changed my entire life. We have my Mom in a house right next to her’s and we had a caregiver helping us out. But when this all started well we took over her care and that has been a bit more than I bargained for. Hubby isn’t working so that is helping but our business line still rings and I just keep very busy. But I wanted to share some of the painting I have done recently and most of them you can see on my YouTube site. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jHJPR4xf628&feature=youtu.be

In addition if there is something that interests you please contact me directly. Hope you all stay safe and enjoy the artwork that is being shared. And with any luck I will have time in the near future to add products to the shop.

Really Happy How This Bugger Turned Out

This was a pour on a 18×18 canvas. It started one way and I didnt like it and re-poured on it wet – you can see the video here. And I knew I had plans to make it even better! After having talk with a new artist friend, I talked myself into finishing this project that you can find the video here. And here is the result. One final flood cover and into a frame and it will be ready for the store.

Example of how this could look on your wall.

Enjoy your week, I have family coming in but I will be painting or doing some resin by Sunday.

From A Mistake To A Happy Surprise

From disaster to a miracle pour! I love how it turned out. Each time you sit down to do some kind of art you really never know what your really going to get, this is one of those times. I tried pearly pastel colors and really after 15 minutes or less I hated it. I knew I had to grab some more me colors and go for it. I love it. You can check out the process here.

Sometimes It Just Doesn’t Work But Don’t Give Up

As an artist or creative person you have something envisioned in your head and when go to do it, it just isn’t what you thought it would be. Just don’t give up hope you can always do something that may or may not work but and either make it okay or amazing. A project did about 2 weeks ago was an example of just this happening and well I repoured a section and I love the out come. Still not what I envisioned in my head, but rarely does that really happen like that. And here is a link to the video. As always this is for sale and if interested let me know at yavappl@gmail.com And before too long it will be going into the shop. Just not enough hours in the days to get real life things done and have the extra play time I would love to have.

Happy Mishap that makes me happy

Happy New Year To All!

It is already 2020 and I still can’t believe how fast 2019 went. I guess the old saying the older you get the faster life passes you by. I have been so busy with holiday activities that I have not shown much in the way of what I have been working on. But I have been very busy in the background. Here is a recent video I did and hope you enjoy it. This will be listed in the shop here very soon. And watch the second video with this one that I used a completely new product like a varnish – but called a pouring resin.
