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 Serene

With all of the blossoms surrounding me, I am reminded of our visit last year to the Japanese Gardens in Lethbridge. It was such a serene environment, with carefully hand selected round smooth rocks spaced equally apart in the fine sand, beautifully sculpted trees and bushes, gently flowing waterfalls into a calm pond, wooden bridges, pagodas, and benches offering places of contemplation, ducks flying in and out freely, and slow winding paths encouraging visitors to take their time meandering through the park. As I sit here composing this art on my iPad, I am listening to my favourite traditional Japanese music and imagining what the park might look like in spring. I am positively serene!

  1. this artwork has indeed a very peaceful serene atmosphere. I love walking around in Japanese gardens, I think it's the sound of water that is so soothing ... Thanks so much for your comment on my blog, I had to laugh with your description of your hair flying in the wind and that you thought your hair was doing the denthe hair side flap :-) lol !

  2. I think your Japanese music as added a Japanese atmosphere of zen to your drawing. I really love the delicate lacy tracery of the branches. Amazing that you can do all that with the ipad! I haven't tried drawing on one yet. Also... I'm also a Canadian! From Manitoba, but i live overseas now.
