    Hi, I am a new follower of your blog and of your art. heavens knows why I haven't come across you before! Maybe it just wasn't the right time. Can I just say "hello" from Scotland, UK, and name your little boat "Future"

    Hugs,
    Cat

  40. That video was awesome! I loved how you did the progression of images to make it look like the boat was sailing through the storms.

    You can find out what I think you should call your boat and why, plus a little surprise here:

  41. Except I was wrong. Moby Dick did win out in the end. Hhhmm, may need to suggest you call it Moby instead, (well you can't really call it Dick can you?!)

    This video made me smile. I'm so glad I found your blog.

    How about "the gra-free-ti"? (It seems like an appropriate combo for your art & the song)

    p.s. I love that song (it's #5 on my painting songs playlist)... #1 is "Tinfoil Girl" by Kathleen Smith - if you haven't already heard it, you should give it a listen - I think you'd like it too.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Love the video, so whimsical and playful! My vote would be:

    Mistress Free, Spirit of the Sea

    :)

    ReplyDelete
  45. These days, my life seems to mirror that of your boat - one minute I'm sailing happily along, sun shining and waves la la laaa-ing and then the clouds roll in and the rain comes pouring down. However, no matter what the weather, I am always hopeful that my life is on the course it's meant for. That gives me peace through the hard times.

    I just got another piece added to my latest tattoo - that of an anchor, which is on the flag of my home state of RI. On the RI flag, there's one word inside the banner and that word is HOPE. Since my family is Portuguese, my tattoo banner reads "Esperanca" with one of those little "thingies" under the c. Esperanca is Portuguese for "hope." That is the name I choose for your boat - Esperanca.

  46. "Contentment" It goes along with my lesson this week: learning to be content in any and every situation. Life is full or ups & downs, sunny days and rainy ones but this lil boat kept a bright cheerful disposition thru it all. That is my goal !

    This lil animation was such a cute surprize at the end of our video. I thought it would just be a film of your drawing process.
    Thank you for the joy.

    ReplyDelete
  47. I like the name Abrielle. Would love to win your giveaway!

    ReplyDelete
  48. How about something very different like...
    "Olive Tuesday"
    I love unique things and the circles on the finished page kind of reminded me of colorful olives. :)

  49. Hi Alisa,
    How about Joyful Endeavor?
    Loved the video!

    ReplyDelete
  50. Either "Lumana" (Hausan language) or "Kagiso" (Setswanan language), both of which mean "peace". Sailing on the sea is the most peaceful and serena thing I know...

  59. SaraswatiChB10:59 PM

    "Wanderer" if it hasn't been said. Or "Morgen", which is "tomorrow" in German, if I may make a second suggestion.

    I really love the idea and your combination of white and colored areas in your drawings.

    ReplyDelete
  60. The S.S. Inspiration... love your illustrations. So colorful and happy!!

    ReplyDelete
  61. Persistance Blooms

    ... because to me these pictures mean that through the weathering of life's storms one can truly open up to all life has to offer and "Bloom" thus manifesting one's true potential/calling. A truly beautiful state to live one's life in.

    ReplyDelete
  62. LOVE the video!
    The boat should be named "Dream searcher".
    hugs,Lena

  67. Dear Alisa,
    As your ship really reminds me of one a worked on, in the mediteranean, for a lovely summer with lots of sunshine, a little storm and many nights sleeping on deck under the stars I would call her "Lady Jade".
    Creative greetings from Rotterdam!

    ReplyDelete
  68. I would name the boat Burkie

    ReplyDelete
  69. Just found your blog! How inspiring! I'd name the boat "S.S. Sunshine & Ink Lines"

    Happy Doodling!

    ReplyDelete
  70. LOVED IT!!! Hmm, I hope this isn't a repeat, but Polly comes to mind as a good name. Or a longer name could be Sloop Sunny Side (or Sunny Side Sloop). Can't wait to see what you decide on :)!

    ReplyDelete
  71. I have a few other names; Journey, Penny or The Creative Spirit. I love your art. I originally saw you on Craft Lab I think. You were showing how to make a clutch out of plastic bags and I fell in love with your style. You are amazing.

    Being on a boat like that, I would be more than happy to go 'Wherever the Wind Blows' so that's what I'd call it.

  90. The Trend Spot1:34 PM

    How about, The Silver Lining, for an optimistic, upbeat little tug boat that sails in rain or sunshine to find adventure? The name speaks of a positive attitude that no matter where you journey or what life tosses your way, you can choose to have the mindset of seeing the silver lining. Journey on, Alisa!

    ReplyDelete
  91. that is absolutely the SWEETEST little animation ever. I'm curious, what video editing software do you use?

    ReplyDelete
  92. I love visiting your blog. I started reading your blog little after you became a f/t artist. So in making honor to taking that big step and the freedom it has given you to create such beautiful work, I'd like to say that your boat should be named "Soy Libre" in English meaning "I'm Free".

    Thank you for sharing your creativity.

    ReplyDelete
  93. Kaliope or Calypso Sun/(sunrise)
    great "doodles" Wish I could do as well!

    Hi Alisa...Big fan of your..but more than me my 9 yrs old twin daughters are fans of your creative recycled material art. So when they saw thing video they just fell in love with that little tiny boat.

    Lara - Who has slight CP has to face the rough waters in school where kids say you can't do this or that. So she came up with the name - "I Believe". Becasue seh does believe that there is nothing impossible is she belives in herself.

    Vara - Want to be very creative and great artist but the only subject she gets a "B" in is Arts. But she tries and is in love with the giveaway and her option for the name is - "Bring it on".

    I am sending it for my daughters. Hope they win..

    ReplyDelete
  97. "dream weaver" great video!!
    trishnatey@gmail.com

    ReplyDelete
  98. Wow, everyone has come out of the woodwork. I think Independence would be a good name. It shows your independence as an artist and your totally independent style.

    ReplyDelete
  99. The boat name should be "Carefree" that's what my little girls said, they are 4 and 8. They keep singing the song and loved the video, I think we watched it 4x, I lost count. What an amazing giveaway :)

    ReplyDelete
  100. Call her Art Journey. Loved the video.

    ReplyDelete
  101. Definitely, "Life" boat.

    ReplyDelete
  102. I loved the video - thanks! Perhaps the USS Creative Sun

    ReplyDelete
  103. Just discovered your blog and love it! Your boat should be called Asila, your name backwards, for everything you put into your work.

    ReplyDelete
  104. Oikaze. Means tailwind or favorable wind in Japanese. Awesome little boat- thanks for sharing that.

    ReplyDelete
  105. The "Happy Traveller"

    ReplyDelete
  106. Since you seem to be finding your way in your new work world I thought the name
    The Seeker
    would be appropriate.

    ReplyDelete
  107. Deborah Douglas11:41 PM

    To me it says "Free Spirit".

    ReplyDelete
  108. Thanks so much for sharing the video. It was great fun to watch and a really neat idea at the end to bring it all together. How about 'Enchantment' for the little boat's name?
    Thank you for offering the generous giveaway.

    Sheila

  109. i would call my boat BEERACUDA :)

  110. Ichi Ban!

  111. "Day Dreamer" would be the name for this boat that can take you to the most extraordinary places within your mind!

    ReplyDelete
  112. Anonymous6:30 AM

    I also was going to say "Carefree" but since someone beat me to it, I suggest "Carefree Sun" Diane

    ReplyDelete
  113. I love watching your videos - I could sit and watch you paint and draw all day long! thanks for sharing - this makes me want to get out my drawing pad right now.

    I think a great name for your boat would be "Zoe," which is the greek word for life. Watching the video of the boat going through storms and sunshine makes me think of what we go through in life - sometimes the sun is shining and sometimes it's storming. but in the end it's worth it - the journey. We all go through it.

    ReplyDelete
  114. Wind Drifter, or maybe Dream Drifter

    ReplyDelete
  115. i love this happy little boat chugging along. how about "Patience". i have loved this name for a little girl and why not a sweet little boat???

    ReplyDelete
  116. I think the boat should be named The S.S. Whimsy!

    ReplyDelete
  117. Great inspiration to just draw. The boat is "The Journey"!

    ReplyDelete
  118. susan dryer7:56 PM

    wind d'mer seems to fit your dear sailboat. looking forward to seeing more of her adventures on your videos!

    ReplyDelete
  119. wow that video was JOYFUL! it had me laughing out loud and saying 'wow' over and over LOL!
    I was wondering what type of brush/tool you were using for the paint - it looked like you could draw water up into it. do you mind sharing?
    thanks so much!

  120. Free Spirit :)

  121. Alisa in the photo the pen to the left with the orangish tip what kind of pen is that?

  122. Obviously, I know the drawing for these is over, but I just had to say how lovely this post was. This is exactly the sort of thing I can use to inspire my kiddo for homeschool art.
