Mystic Unicorn School!!

School is about to begin. It's like the most magical summer school ever!

Mystic Unicorn school is an awakening of magic that is all around. In the little things. In the fort building. In the staying in on rainy days creating magic.
We will get inspired and create from a place of inner child magic. We will be creating in mainly gouache, and acrylic paints.

New abstract-ish work

I've been having fun playing with bright color from my turner gouache collection and decided to take a different route with my art. The turner gouache color pigment is so intense and beautiful. I have been so inspired by the rich color.

Stay tuned! I'll be announcing a new class shortly. And for the first 20 folks to sign up, you'll get a cool gift! I will announce here first.

Mickey's treat truck and club house!

Mickey's serving up treats today!! 
This original painting is created with gouache and some collage papers glued down for textures. He was so fun to create.
I am leaning towards more of an illustration style to my work. I'm not sure where and when I'll decided to go back to my messy, soulful girls. I'm just having so much fun painting happy, colorful mickeys and girls!

New Original Artwork

Today I finished 3 small paintings inspired by childhood nostalgia. Where was your favorite clubhouse? Mine was always in nature. I traveled by bike and set up and walked across the stream on a log. It was the prettiest spot I'd ever seen. Years later I went back and of course the log was no longer there. So ephemeral. The bridge was new overhead. It wasn't the same.

Rainbow painted papers

Yesterday on Patreon, I created a video for painted papers ! I also demonstrated how to make your own stamps out of 1/4" craft foam. If you are interested in how to do these, check out my $5 Supply Seeker tier on Patreon.
Unicorn creativity packs will be available in my Big cartel tonight or tomorrow morning so be sure and not miss those.

Lots of fun things are coming down the pipelines this month on Patreon. We'll be painting lots of Mickey's and Minnies!
Here's the first lesson we created using luminance colored pencils and mixed media (mostly gouache)
