The mom has taken over our bloggie for today. There was a little too much involved for us to use our paws to create these paintings. Here goes:
Today we are doing an art day and linking up with Rain's Kitchen and Garden
. It's her Thursday Art and Dinner Date: Cool Colours (blues, purples, greens) post. And I am soooo thankful that I was able to find a way to express myself through my artwork. It has helped me to finally feel comfortable, calm, and transitioned in our new home in NC.
First up we have one of my recent watercolor mixed media paintings. This was created from a recent class I took online in Maria Grossbaum's Abymisso Art School
. This was one of the exercises in the Secrets of Lotus tutorial. It teaches you first how to be intuitive, and technically how to create a 3d effect with Pebeo relief outliners and use and mix lots of different materials: watercolors, acrylics, watercolor papers, relief outliners, and iridescent paints among others. Also you learn how to create gradients, textures, mixing color, and the freedom to just create. Many beautiful effects can be achieved following the instructions and/or creating intuitively. After the exercises are completed, the techniques are used to create the final painting, a field of lotus flowers. You can follow her guidance exactly as she does or create something all your own using her techniques.
Here is what I created for the 3D relief / flowers exercise to show since it has cool colors using blues, purples, and greens and my favorite colors :-).
And where would we be without showing an AI painting of one of our furry beauties, Teaghan with the ocean background of blues and greens. Dream by Wombo's AI
creation did a pretty good job, except it looks like she's missing one ear! Pretty anyway.

And finally, today's purple breakfast. Simple Chia (2 tablespoons) and coconut milk (1 can whole fat) with frozen blueberries. Just simple and healthy food. No sugar needed. You can if you'd like to sugar it up, add some pure maple syrup. Enjoy!
Hope you enjoyed our art and food today!
