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!

June is Positively Here!

We have had a very dry spring so far, but I can tell June has positively arrived... rain showers, thunder, giant beautiful fluffy clouds and pretty rainbows!

I have finally got my mojo back and have began to refill, refresh and rejuvenate  my soul by making art.  On the weekend, I broke out a giant canvas, acrylic paint (only primary colours, white and magenta) and completed an entire abstract painting in one night.  Layer after later, turning the canvas regularly,  only spring happy colours allowed, no plan, just intuitive painting.  It looks awesome in our newly painted entrance way.

I have also been playing in my journals and have committed to The Journal Fodder Junkies 15 minutes a day for 30 minutes a day art challenge.  Magenta marker, primary watercolour paint, stenciling, splattering, squares, and patterns!

Time to play with collage and  paint.

Finally, the smell of a fresh spring clean morning!

Time to play in puddles!

Old paths with new perspectives!

June is looking very optimistic and refreshing and rejuvenating!  I am very glad that June is positively here!

Here is to early morning June sunrises!

I hope you all feel refreshed!


  1. I was thinking of you yesterday, wondering what you are up to and here you are telling us.
    so glad that June is looking optimistic. Sweet end of spring to you!

  2. Thanks, Tammie! This post was printed prematurely. I hadn't even uploaded the photos and for some reason this was published. I have added the art and more photos.

  3. A super lovely post all around! Love the beautiful scenery-and a rainbow sighting is always magical isn't it? Gorgeous art-so many wonderful layers and colors in each project. Happy PPF!

  4. Greetings from the UK, where the Spring has arrived but the low temperatures don't match! Thank you for your lovely comment on my art journal and I enjoyed my visit here very much!

  7. Hello renee! I wondered how you were! I love your intuitive painting and as always your photos are beautiful. How inspiring are those big skies! The weather in my corner if the world has been grey and wet for most of may. Hoping for better things... Keep taking those wonderful photos....I love them!

  8. Stunning abstract...I love it!! Not sure the wall colour there but it looks to be a pretty mauve much like my kitchen used to be several years ago...still love that colour!! Love the stencil pattern work would look awesome on a large canvas...Very nice work and love the serenity of the gorgeous...OH Canada!!

  9. I love the pattern and colors in your overnight abstract, and can see the inspiration of those gorgeous skies in your photographs. I'm also a fan of the Journal Fodder Junkies, and have both their fabulous books, although I'm not as disciplined about my pages as you. Thanks for your earlier visit and Blessings!
