working on some art...and my mood...

"Valley Day"

My life is a roller coaster 

What do you do to get out of a valley 
and back up the hill 

Getting out into nature ?
 The beach
 The mountains

Even if it is just my backyard
it helps to swing on my porch swing
  and soak up some nature

Joyfully whispered in my ear...

"Kat... do something about your bad mood
go out and get what you need to be artistic today"
"don't wait"
"don't hesitate"
"do it !"

So I did

 Today I am happy to be working on an oil painting
 (sorry if you are tired of my trees )

and also playing around with wire and beads
...my new experiment
in creativity
 I tape off the trees
I'm not sure why I feel the need to do this step
I just like to keep things defined

Then I slather on some blue and white
 for the beautiful  blue sky
Then I pull all the masking tape off
This is very messy

buff color for a base color on the trees

I just put on some sky and the light and shadow of it
and the base color for the trees
To Be Continued ...
here are the supplies to make some
casual pendants
with large gauge wire
and some beads... crystals( C Z )
and waxed linen string

 non tarnishing wire
pounded flat

so my valley day
is on the upswing now
at least going down is fast
and up is more gradual.

Hugs  all

oooo I love the pendant!!

I can't wait for deep snow. After a hike through deep snow, I'm too exhausted to feel emotions ;)

More UP for you, girlfriend!

I can FEEL this.... I can't tell you how much a seriously "GET" what you are talking about here with the voice telling you to get stuff for your creativity AND the idea of thinking through why you do what you do on canvas!!! It is sooooo weird, but I just blog posted about this, then came onto my dashboard and read your post from yesterday.

Being an artist is an adventure everyday. So glad I found your blog.:)
