Art and Positive Thinking

Welcome to my Renee Loves Art blog!

My focus is exploring, creating and reflecting upon the positives of life and connecting them to my art whether it be photography, pen and ink drawings, watercolour paintings, mixed media, digital media or any other possible media I dive into!

I hope you join me on my art adventure!

Positively Proud!

I am positively proud!  I skipped around the house just now... it wasn't pretty, but, oh well. I finally finished my watercolour painting of the rocks from Vancouver Island.  The whole process was so calming, exciting and exhilerating.  It was so fun to figure out what colours the rocks really were. I painted after work, in the morning and in the afternoon, whenever I felt inspired!  It is the first painting I have done since my lessons that I actually like!  My next adventure is to figure out how to paint faster... but baby steps, right?  For now, I will be positively proud of the gains I have made so far in blending the colours and showing reflected light!
They All Fit Together!
