|Follow left to right, all of the way down. Beginning to now. I nixed number two, as I thought it was too "pretty". I was happy with the center and then fussed with it. I feel like I ended up back where I started, "prettyish". |
Back to the easel.

These new friends of mine are being created from both digital paintings and drawings I have done while traveling with my iPad and then printing them out, tearing them up and then adding them to paintings and drawings I have done with acrylics, heavy gel medium, collage and charcoal.
I am really having a blast with this new process!
Now, if I only could remember how to use this blog page, so I could freshen it up and change the header and side bar, etc. Time. it takes lots of time. Time I would rather spend painting and drawing.

While vacationing in the Riviera Maya of Mexico this past week, I used my Paper by 53 and Pencil by 53 apps for iPad, to exercise my creative self. It's not "pure" as far as tools are concerned, but it is amazingly easy to take traveling and sketch, paint and write to your hearts content, without carrying a suitcase of art supplies.
Having been to Mexico a few times and loving the richness of the culture, I decided to create some goddesses of my own to honor the Mayan gods and goddesses and have a bit of fun with the idea.
