A few months back I received an email from a fellow small business owner - she loved my painted journals and wanted to know if I could paint her logo on a journal for her. In exchange, she would send me some of her products - the equivalent value. I LOVE to barter, so I said yes. I posted my step by steps here ... but refrained from posting the finished jurnal - as I wanted Adachi to be the first person to see it. She received the journal today - and happy to say - she loved it! ANKH HOLISTIC HEALERS Developing relationships with fellow business owners is very rewarding and it's a wonderful way to share not only your services and/or products - but your knowledge, craft and ideas.

I started something new ... this time I am painting on 2 5x7 canvas boards. I have an inkling of what I want the finished canvas' to look like ... but I am learning to just let it flow. Basecoating with Jo Sonja and a little glazing medium:

Her name is Melancholy ... and she is currently on my painting table. I promised myself this year that I would be truer to my art ... dig deeper ... be freer ... not there yet .. but getting there. It's all in her eyes, isn't it? :)

Around Mother's Day I posted my initial progress with an old surface I had laying around HERE. UPDATE: I think I am closed to finished with this piece ... I messed up the front near the hydrangea and covered it up with all the colors that were on my palette ... and here is how I left off...
This latest custom order is for a fellow crafter ... she wanted her logo on a journal. So far, so good. Step One: I sketched the logo onto the journal face, using my fav yellow marking pencil.

Good Afternoon .. I hope everyone is enjoying the weekend. I have several surfaces in my stash that I bought so many moons ago ... and I'm starting to dig through it all - just looking for something fun to paint. This surface is a paper plate holder .. so with the coming of summer ... I am painting it up. I have no clue as to how it will turn out - but that's half the fun!! Enjoy the weekend...and have a Happy Mother's Day tomorrow.
