History

I love to paint. I started painting as a sophomore in high school and didn't stop until I graduated. Once I started college, I was really too busy to continue painting the way I did in high school. In college, I took art classes that introduced me to new mediums and ideas, but I still didn't have time for my first love: watercolor. I would love to start painting again. So, my hope with this blog is that it will force me to make time to paint more often and I would love to share my work with anyone who is interested. Here are some awkward pictures of the things I have done up to this point:

This is the first watercolor I ever did. I did it in my first watercolor class and with a Crayola paint set.

Also done with a Crayola paint set. 



This is the first painting that my teacher, Mr. Fackrell, said is a "showpiece"-- the first painting I did that was worth framing.







"Souper Art Night"-- four hour competition and I took second place


This peacock will forever hang in the hallway at Cottonwood High School

Doodles from my Journal

I've been doodling for a couple of days now and I've really enjoyed it. It sure helps pass the time at work and I like to see what I come up with. Here are a few pictures from my art journal. They will all eventually be painted.




Art Journal: Dandelions

dandelion doodle:




This doodle was inspired by a dandelion I saw growing in the middle of a bunch of rocks. I was going to the hospital to visit my grandmother with my mom. On our way in, I saw the dandelion and asked my mom if she thought I should pick it for my grandma, as a joke, of course. She didn't think it was very funny, so I left the dandelion where it was.

I don't mind dandelions. I like the name and they're like little balls of sunshine. Plus, they give you wishes. It's hard for me to call them weeds.
