Yesterday while I was painting, I started several new ones. Here's one I decided to continue today. I really liked the background of this. I have a really hard time starting on a background that I like, but I knew that I needed to continue. So I started drawing lines. This so didn't match what … Continue reading Pink trees
Painting today. Remember those crystals I'd wanted to work on? Well, I continued to experiment with that. This is a painting I'd started awhile back and I knew it would have crystals in it, but I was brave enough to finish it today. Here it is: Crystal painting6″x4″ acrylic on canvas panel©2022 Dawn Blair Now, … Continue reading Crystals again
I finished the last of 6 charcoal tree drawings at the show today. Then I tried to write, but it was too hot under the canopy and sitting outside was hard to do. Yesterday, it was cold and we had a wind which kept it chilly throughout the day. Today, we got heat and no … Continue reading More charcoal trees
Hwy93 Vendor show Saturday (from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.) and Sunday (from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.). I'm all set up, but I certainly am sore today. I have Dragons of Wellsdeep back in stock. So, I hope to see you out at Mountain View Barn just outside of Jerome, Idaho tomorrow.
Well, my subconscious was not a good place to be last night. I woke up from a terrible elevator/earthquake dream last night. Temmy came in then and tried to curl up with me (on my face). She kept trying to comfort me by sticking her paw up (in my face). I didn't even sleep well … Continue reading Held back
I spent the afternoon, or the later part of it, writing. I feel like I'm about to finish Siva's book and I probably have a couple thousand words or so left to it. It excites me that I'm so close to being done with this book, though I'm torn about what I'm going to go … Continue reading Whole squash? Will it cook?
I'm trying to get braver with my painting. It's hard. Recently, I thought about painting crystals in some of my works. The issue? I've never painted crystals. So I had to go learn how to do that, which ended up to be the easy part. Eventually, I would have to sit down and give it … Continue reading Crystals found
I love wrought iron. If you've ever read any of my books, you'll see a lot of wrought iron. Sometimes I feel that when my creative brain asks, "What is that made of?" with "that" being any stationary object in a the book (a bench, a staircase, a desk, etc.), the first thing that jumps … Continue reading Wrought iron
Painted tonight and still hoping to get some writing in. I can't say that I have a schedule or anything, but I'm trying to find a rhythm. It doesn't help that I didn't get to bed until nearly midnight and couldn't get to sleep for a long time. So when the cats started trying to … Continue reading A dragonfly appears
Serious. That's what my critical voice wanted me to be. More serious. It wanted to rob me of the play and joy I find in creating. That was actually the second thing I learned by stopping to take a moment to listen to what my critical voice was yelling at me about. The first was … Continue reading The noise subsides
