The Creative Coaching Carnival

Marney Makridakis from Artella gave a web presentation last night called "The Creative Coaching Carnival." She was using carnival attractions as metaphors for the different styles of coaching people may use while using the ARTbundance method. ARTbundance stresses the use of art as a means to help people deal with their issues of any kind. We were directed throughout the presentation to draw three carnival attractions - first a ferris wheel, second a carnival midway, and finally a merry-go-round. Since we had to draw quickly, it was like drawing as a kid again. Afterwards, I scanned my three pictures and combined them into one in Photoshop. It was so much fun!

Ocean Waves

I've always loved the ocean! I wish we could live near one. I decided to try using the joint compound technique we learned in Wyanne's "Making It Big" class to create a painting celebrating the waves in the ocean. I love the texture it made.

Digital Whisper Blog Challenge - BFF

I drew the tree trying out the new app I downloaded to my iPad called Sketch Club. I really like the app considering what it does. I have the iPencil, and the Sketch Club app takes full advantage of it. I definitely have a lot to learn, though. :-)

New Painting

This is the second painting I've done for Wyanne Thompson's "Making It Big" class. We are still using the Lightweight Wallboard Joint Compound. It really makes a lot of texture!
