FANTASY BIRD – JAPANESE BRUSH PAINTING

Fantasy bird brush painting 9-2014 WATERMARK

 

FANTASY BIRD – I like to take birds that really exist and by adding a few extra feathers turn them into fantasy birds.  The white leaves add an element of beauty to this fantasy bird’s environment.  Fantasy birds make fabulous greeting cards that contain a bit of magic, too.  Japanese brush painting.

LIFE OF AN ARTIST BY THE SEA – 2014 ART JOURNAL – WHALE WATCHING TRIP, TROPICAL RAIN, & AN ELEPHANT SEAL!

August 2014 Art Journal - Page 99 WATERMARK

 

2014 ART JOURNAL – WATERCOLOR – FIRST WEEK OF AUGUST – Wore my lucky Tibet necklace to the Athenaeum art opening.  This necklace is a great conversation starter, which is good for me because sometimes I can be shy in a crowd.  Made Bird Song in My Heart collage cards.  Went on a whale watching trip & saw the migrating blue whales, sea lions sitting on a buoy, a Mola Mola fish jumping out of the water.  The pelicans were all lined up on the bait deck waiting for a handout.  San Diego had tropical rain storms & it was hot & humid.  Watched a pelican fishing in La Jolla & got to see another lovely Elephant Seal who was visiting.  Lovely life of mine as an artist by-the-sea!

A BIG THANK YOU FOR 12,000 VIEWS!

12,000 VIEWS – Thanks to everyone who takes time out of our busy lives to view my blog.  So happy to be able to share my life as an artist by-the-sea!

Abalone sea shells are one of my very favorite shells.  I wish they weren’t endangered now.
