Right Here & Now . . . .

9 x 12 WIP on pressed cardboard

Just a short little ditty about a few things going on Right Here & Now . . . 

First, there's a new girl in town - the WIP above was created on pressed cardboard (from the back of a pad of watercolor paper no less ;) that was first treated with Gesso applied with a palette knife. That said, my obsession with palette knives is officially well, official. If you wanna see her progress (I'm going for a palette of mostly whites), check out my Instagram feed for more. 

Speaking of Here & Now, today is the day that my first Life Book lesson airs! Yippeee! If you're on Life Book 2015, I hope you'll enjoy it! I. Am. So. looking forward to seeing your results. And of course, if you have any questions at all, please ask away. I'm honored to be here for you! 

Oh! And guess what?! This girl actually updated her much neglected Etsy shop! I've included the set of 5 canvases (above) just back from Somerset Studio's "With One Palette," along with several new original paintings. I do hope they bring someone as much love as I felt while creating them.

And . . . . it's beginning to look a lot like the SOC! The The Summer of Color 5 is just 5 tiny weeks away and the Facebook group is already hopping. If you're joining for the first time or if you're a seasoned vet, I promise, this is one year not to be missed.

And there you have it! A little bit about what's happening Right Here & Now.

To Love, Art & Exciting Things to Come,
Kristin xo

Bonjour chère amie,

Un très joli petit billet qui nous fait entrevoir de jolies oeuvres dont celle avec ce regard au "clin d'oeil" avec ses joues rosies en forme de coeur.

❀ Gros bisous ❀

Great drawing, fascinating technique - I'm saving my cardboard from now on.
Love your one-palette, a great choice of colours.
