Busy busy busy ....

... but not much to show for it ;-) I've been filling in the white background in my big painting, so it's still looking more or less the same. Can't wait to start working on the figures. I am preparing a new background for the same kind of painting, but instead of white I plan on using Payne's Gray. And I've also been putting more layers on my intuitive painting canvas. But like I said: there's not much to show right now ....

I have been making new ACEO's too, but only one's finished. I make the drawings while I'm sitting with my daughter on her bed at night before she goes to sleep. It has taken a while before we took up this habit again, but we both really enjoy it, even if there's only 10 minutes left before she goes to sleep.

This one was made with coloured pencils, markers and acrylics. It's available here.

Today I want to share art from some students in my Soulfood class. Didn't manage to reach everyone, but I got some to share already:

Lloydene calls these her "quirky collage girls". I love it everytime she comes up with yet another creation. You can see more of her wonderful art on her Facebookpage.

Joyce made 2 versions of the same girl, and I love both of them. Can't pick a favorite! You can find more of her beautiful art on her blog.

Amazing faces by Jackie Beeman. Also really love her colourful backgrounds.

And some more by Lloydene.

I really enjoy seeing what my students create. Makes me want to make more workshops, only to see what they will come up with :-)

There's another promotion in my Society6-shop (free worldwide shipping), so I decided to add some more art. Here are some examples:

 iphone skin
 stationary card
 framed art print

  6. Seeing your work is always inspiring. Your art is beautiful. And showing the students work is a special treat.

  7. Gorgeous - I'm always amazed at how much detail you can get in such a small piece. What a nice way to finish up each day - making memories drawing with your daughter - how long have you been doing that now? I know she will never forget this time spent with you!

    1. Thanks Michelle! I don't even remember when we started doing this. I used to draw in her room at night while she was falling asleep, because she didn't like to be alone then. And since she's been 9 or so (she's 12 now) we've been sitting on her bed together, me drawing and she reading or doing something creative too. Precious time and precious memories, we both love it ...

  8. It's really interesting to see your style of art interpreted by other artists. You must be really proud of your class in soulfood,there's some lovely work there. I love the phone cover- your art works so well printed onto all these different things.

  9. Ahhh the students work is wonderful! Signs of a great teacher!! I have yet to finish- but will share when I do,Denise!!
    Enjoy those precious minutes with your daughter, they grow sooo fast! Happy Mother's Day to you! xx

  11. Your usual gorgeous art projects!! I love seeing what your class has inspired-what a great class it must have been-these student samples are fantastic! If I had an iphone your skin would be the one I'd have to have :)

  12. Beautiful artwork full of inspiration, thank you for sharing. Tracy xoxox
