Very busy week, heavy with events. Let's take a look... We had a lovely tour to Terry Ludwig Studio, we were shown how pastels are made by Terry himself and his son Geoff. We are so lucky to have this wonderful pastel maker mere minutes away from our house. Children left absolutely inspired and I … Continue reading Third week of March art
Second week of March was full of artistic pursuits. Some were especially challenging. Let's take a look: As I wrote last week, I signed up for Make Art That Sells Assignment Bootcamp. We received our first mini assignement this week and it asked us to look for and draw some patterns. Now, I hardly ever do patterns, … Continue reading Second Week of March: New Challenges!
February is on its way out. Yay, to be honest. It was one busy, crazy month, and final couple of days will be no different. We had a snowstorm this week, it wasn't bad, but I can't wait for spring. Despite being very busy I managed to do most of my preferred art exercises this … Continue reading Almost done with February: Joys and struggles
Remember how I complained last week that the pace that I set for myself in January is unrealistic this month because of all I have to do with kids, at home etc... Well, turns out it didn't matter much because I managed to drop some activities and pick up new ones instead. Maybe I am a … Continue reading Weekly Report: February week 2

Another week flew by. Or rather crept, as it seemed very long and New Year doesn't feel so new anymore. The first half of the week as I've written in my midweek report was rather challenging, so many drawing attempts were turning out less than perfect. But I also had a strike of inspiration following … Continue reading Week 2 of 2017: Fails and victories
First week of the year flew by very very fast. It was the first week for me doing art on a carefully planned schedule, and I got a lot done. I have used pretty much every material I was hoping to use and got a feel of the time spent on every medium. As I … Continue reading Week 1 of 2017 : Round Up
Summer is wrapping up. July and August for me were just as productive as June. There were a few new things for me this summer and today I am going to talk about one of them- Midori Traveler's Notebook. Midori Traveler's Notebook is a notebook system from Japan, and it's basically a leather cover and various … Continue reading New things to try: Midori Traveler’s Notebook
Getting ready to say "goodbye" to June. Times sure flies, but things got done despite the heat and general desire to rest that always comes in the summer.
