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 Wonderful Wednesday!

What makes a day positively wonderful? 

Being surrounded by blue!

Chilling out with the Shooting Stars!

Witnessing Friendship!
  Being surrounded by young people who are polite and respectful and support each other when they need help.   Hearing young friends' laughing together and chit chatting as they roast hot dogs and marshmallows around the campfire. Being included in the conversation, even though I am the mother!

Enjoying Summertime Fun!

Sneaking Around the Trees To Capture the Action!

Sketching my shed as I wait for action to pass by!

Carefully placing signs in fun,  hinting to go slowly around the corner.


Watching youngsters feeling adventurous!

Sketching in my garden with my dog laying by my side in the shade of the blue spruce!
Playing Mozart as the fan blows through my hair!

Eating Yummy Tomatoes from My Favourite Made in Medicine Hat Bowl

Making garden fresh tomato sandwiches!

Gazing admiringly at my home grown red tomatoes contrasting in my favourite robin egg blue Hycroft bowl!

What does it take to make a positively wonderful Wednesday? 
A lot of ordinary but extraordinary little things!

    1. Thank you for your comments, I appreciate them a lot! After taking your watercolour class,I haven't looked at vegetables the same way. Suddenly they are beautiful...their colours, their shape, the way the sun reflects off of them!
