ZOOM Journaling - new class - ROOTED

A couple weeks ago I taught my first zoom workshop, mono printing in our journals, and it was a wonderful experience. Zoom allows me to demonstrate my process, simultaneously share my journal and my palette, and interact with participants in real time. Additionally, the class video becomes available afterwards for direct download for any students wishing to try the lesson on their own time after the fact.

If you haven't yet tried journaling, what's holding you back? There's no need for previous arting experience (I promise you that - as complex as my pages may look, they are simple exercises that can be completed by anyone), no specialized art materials or equipment. And no expectation that what you make will hang on a wall or even ever have to be shared. All you need is the desire to make some marks and play with the tools. So please consider joining us - either in a zoom session, or one of the free #journalthroughit classes.

If you are an avid journaler, you will be excited about this new offering from me, Rooted, which is a session inspired by my connection with Mother Earth. I will share processes and techniques behind the creation of this journal spread, lead the group in a simple grounding exercise, and set you all free to make your own interpretations of growing roots. Class will happen August 20th, 6-8pm eastern time. Can't make it? that's ok - there's a download option - keep on reading!

Want to join? message me and I'll send you the flyer in pdf form, which includes a direct link to register along with the materials list. Or you can pay $10 using Paypal - just indicate in the notes that you are registering for Rooted, and please also make sure to include the email address you wish to use for class. Added bonus - participants in the live zoom class also get the download for free. 

Do you want to download the previous Zoom class, Poppies? pay via Paypal ($10) and outline in the notes area that you would like the link and passcode to Poppies. Unless directed otherwise, responses will go to the email address associated with the paypal payment.

Thanks, as always, for following along on my art journey!
Warmly, Kim

Lashes and Corkscrews, Buckskin Horse

"Lashes and Corkscrews," 5" x 8", buckskin tobiano curly horse portrait, acrylic on board, $289 to the first taker. Do I see any hands? Inquires to ksantini@turtledovedesigns.com .

I really DID intend to paint today, but things got out of hand quickly. I think it was the Snickers bar breakfast that me going in the wrong direction right off the bat. Then the mid-morning helping of caramel corn followed by a Kit-Kat lunch.... straight downhill from there.

For the last hour I have had my palette open and the brushes out, but trick-or-treaters are coming thick and heavy, and it's becoming very clear that I will NOT be finishing the sheltie paintings tonight (so sorry JB - they are coming, though!!).

Instead I'll share with you a piece I did last week for an art competition. I won't find out about the juror's decision until December, but in the meanwhile, please enjoy Percy, my friend's new gelding. Isn't he a dear?!

Be sure to make some time for a f…

Blue

"Blue," 16" x 20", acrylics on panel, not for sale. Not even if you ask nicely. My family will burn me at the stake if I let this one go.

When My Better Half works nights (like he is tonite), I play while the sun's up and work at the end of the day. It's a fun change to my normal routine.

Today included a little day trip with one of my favorite peeps in one of our favorite places. It was a delight to enjoy each other's company while the rest of the world was at work.

And tonight I had blocked time out to paint for a juried exhibit. My entry is due next week, and, true to form I waited until the nth hour. Because the next painting is always going to be the better one. Well, not always, but I do like to pretend. And I think tonite I might have played my cards well.

Well, mostly I played my cards well. You see, I turned my back, and Blue - yes, sweet little adorable - ate half my pizza** while I was feeding Gertrude Stein. Gertie the bunny, not Gertie the art…
