Color Chart

Wow this took waaayyyyyy longer than I expected! 

I had never made one of these before but I'm not sure why.

I learned so much!!
(Like, why did I think I needed that many different reds?! --but the reds do look a little more diverse in person)

Even though this isn't the best picture, I thought I'd share it anyway. 

If you have paints laying around (I just happened to use watercolor),  I highly recommend it!

Reminds Me of Olives

I really like color combo of the painting I made for a friend, so I created a much smaller scale piece with one of the original sketches I made for her.

I've actually put a glossy finish on it since I took the picture. I like it better that way.
So imagine it if you can....

Random Collage

I've really enjoyed playing with techniques and resources at my disposal with no clear direction.
I let the art tell me what's next.

This one started with a wash of watercolor, acrylic stenciled on top, white paint pen circles, some colored pencil circles and then magazine images added last.

 Not sure if I love this one, but I like the movement I created with the collaged images.
What do you think?

I'm not the kind of person who just loves buttons. 

I have enough of them, but I don't collect them. 

But when looking through a magazine for a focal point to put in the
middle of the yellow rays the buttons were calling out to me...

"Pick us! Pick us!"

How could I deny them the opportunity to live contently in my little drawing?!
