BIG Drawings, Doodles and Lettering

I take video and photos of just about everything and lately I have decided to start sharing more of those videos of my process and all kinds of other creative things. This week is another fun little preview from the next lesson in my Graffiti Chic Part II class so if you are not able to participate here is a sneak peak - this week is all about working with BIG drawings, doodles and lettering. During this week's preparation and filming- my studio wall was painted over and over and over and over again :)

  3. How could you paint over such brilliant work. The first piece was fabulous and then the tree was great too but now they're gone. You are a TRUE artist and paint for yourself and not just to please others.

  11. I'm with everyone else. That tree was so beautiful. I would love to know what else is under that wall. Question: What are you using as a brush? From what I could see, it looked like a very small thing with no handle. Do you cut them down? I'm hoping to take your first class as soon as I can free up the time to devote to it. I love your style and the freedom your art pictures.

  16. What a great lesson in "letting go". Becoming too attached to any creation can stifle the creative edge. You got it girl!
