A piece of Montreal

Hello, I did say I would be back to share some of what I’ve been up to right? Well here it is! My newest painting is a Montreal skyline.  My friend moved this summer and I made this for her to put in her apartment.  She loves it and I’m sooooo happy!  She (and our beautiful city) really was my inspiration for this piece!   Society6  is an online venue where I am selling some of my artwork.  There are hundreds of thousands of artists on Society6 doing the same. So I’m just a small fish in a very large pond, but still, I have had some success! Yay! 🙂 For all my friends today I’m happy to offer (in time for the Holidays) a 20% discount and FREE Worldwide Shipping!! This is a really great time to get some art for your walls, or a friend’s wall! You have to use one of these direct links in this post to access my sale.

New Watercolor Digital Art and Sale on Throw Pillows

Hello friends,  I wanted to share with you my new impressionist watercolor design done completely with my digital paintbrush in Corel Painter!  I am fascinated with the blending of digital and traditional art.  I love painting and I enjoy the freedom of having more options and less mess with the digital paints and brushes that are now at my fingertips.  I only use the brushes that have a traditional feel and function as closely to traditional mediums as possible to get the more natural look that I am after.  I do not use special effects or alter my art in any way.  I simply use my wacom tablet and stylus as my brush and the Corel Painter workspace as my canvas.  I even have the option to mix my paint colors on a palette! I always start with a clean white canvas and build my layers from there.   I am feeling very inspired, so keep your eyes open for more like this! I am loving these colors too…what do you think?   Also, I wanted to let you …

Mini Mushroom Village Card Set

Hello! I’m back from an all too short vacation! But,  I’ve missed you all!! 🙂 I do have an exciting announcement to make… I am now making some of my prints and patterns available on different products at Society6!  I’m super nervous about this but I’ve taken the plunge! My MINI MUSHROOM VILLAGE cards are now available as sets of 3, 5 or 10 at SOCIETY6!  They will be printed and shipped to your door! You can see more of what I have in store at Society6 HERE.  Let me know what you think…I’m being very selective as to what I will make available there so you will not see the same things as in my ACNPrintable Art Etsy shop.  Let me know if you are looking for a particular pattern or image for a product and I’ll see what I can do.   Thank you!  Your feedback, comments and support are so very much appreciated.

Watercolour Illustrtation~Mini Mushroom Village

I’m so excited to share this illustration today! This creative piece just makes me happy! It just puts a smile on my face!  I really enjoyed the process of creating it, and now it holds a special place in my heart. This digital watercolour was inspired by Danielle Donaldson‘s workshop CREATIVE GIRL: LAND OF LIGHT AND SHADOWS .  Danielle works with traditional media, and creates her beautiful art in pencil, watercolour, acrylics and papers. I have been practising my digital painting techniques and was really excited about creating a ‘mixed media’ piece in a completely digital format. I approach a digital piece much the same as I do a traditional piece.  I start with a white canvas and build my paint up in layers. Here are a few photos of my process… I painted in watercolours for the background with different brush work, and then sketched in my mushroom houses in pencil.  I painted with more watercolours and white acrylic on the next two layers… …finishing my illustration with pen and white liquid ink. (All Digital) …
