These are The colors of Her life...

Someone told me the other day... Vanessa, you are the "real thing" 
I will take that as a compliment ! 
I just want to create! 
BIg!! 
Where will that dream take me?
A light filled space 
Somewhere 
To make magical people swoon!
To use the creative gifts I have for that purpose!
Ok Lord.. It's YOUR plan.. I'm just along for the ride!

It's All Part Of The Process ...


This is rather new to me as I usually just dive in to a painting and have no idea what will come out ..seriuosly.. 
So this is my fun path as of lately...
 Find a photo that peaks my interest.. 
Imagine what it might look like as a painting 

Sketch it out in pen... ( aargh! ) 
And let the watercolors splash away.. 

I have new paints and that always is exciting as well! 
And a new brush to dance with... 

Here are some flops.. Xoxox

Half way... Maybe  I should have just stopped ? 


These are NOT my new paints ... Lol but they do work well for throwing in your purse!! :) 




And on the the next ... 
Today I choose Joy...

Gypsy Circus Inspiration

   I Love the colors of a
 gypsy circus in my journal! 
 Let me set the stage...



A blurry day.. 
The smell of popcorn and 
Spice nuts ... 
I hear music from the rides..  
It's loud but rhythmic and wonderful...
it gets stuck in my ear the entire night...

The colors....the smiles... The giggles ...

Pink fluffy sugar candy ...
we eat Snow cones...

We SEE the elephants!!!
   
And always a prize at the end of the night..
 :) 

A place where moments in time are grafted into our memories ...

And we get to choose 
Which ones to keep 
And which ones to 
Toss into the ring! 

thanks for stopping by! xoxox

Lanterns, lights, action, ...Go!

Some times it's the simplest of things...


Like teacups and roses...









Spring is out there somewhere .. And until then.. I have porcelain .... I have Limoge
Noritake ..
And sweet angelic florals.. 
It will have to hold me over for awhile... 
what about you? 
what helps you make it through the winter ?

Love is found...

Artsy Girls weekly meet-up! (And a pinch of glitter)



This was such a fun time! 
We had "find the baby cake" (from Jan and Melissa) and Johnny Depp Cupcakes too! So funny !!


And made wonderful layered creations of fantasy towns..and cities.. 
 A place where artists would visit and twirl with delight! :) 
Here are a few sneek peeks .. 
We are Not mentioning names 
to protect the innocent Xoxox 

So sweet
Layers of goodness! 


These next ones will get covered with layers of white and cream.. Xoxox



Every week I live to take pictures of the artists tables scapes !!! Ooooo I lOve to see what all is on them !! It's like where's Waldo in the art department! Xoxo 




This weekly gathering means the world to the girls in this tribe (as we like to call it) 
..  it's not about the art to us.. Or technique.. 
We are not sticklers about anything .. 
We are there to just celebrate that we showed up! 
And when one person or another ...shines for the day we all applaude  ..
 Because that's all that's important .. Lifting each other up! 
...giving hugs...
Making a little art.. 
Passing over the drama part...

And adding just a hint of glitter...:)
YAY!!! 
Xoxoxo
