Flowers in the Desert

 I thought I'd show my latest illustration on a vintage book page. I'm enjoying working on these wonderful old, distressed pages.  I will post a more gothic style girl soon....

I picked up some canvas a few days ago but haven't had a chance to work on a smaller folk art girl. It's about time I get back to  original whimsical paintings. There aren't many left in my Etsy shop, and my goal is to refill it with new work. It's feeling a bit stale at the moment.
Do you ever get bored with the art you produce?

Today I plan to stay in  and work on a couple of my online classes.  I am in Mystele's Gut Art class  which I missed the first time it was offered. Unlike most classes I take, this one has a finish date, which is fast approaching, and I am getting through the first week now, behind as always, lol!  I admire her folk art style, and would love to learn to loosen up. Lots of videos to get through, and I would recommend this class to anyone who loves her work.

That's it for now, I spent the morning reading my favorite blogs, so now it's time for coffee and a video. What a perfect way to spend a rainy day :-)
