MAVENS Fall challenge: Create a title for an idea/subject that is inspiring and uplifting

Lisa Tiemann, Birds Flying High

after Nina Simone's song, Feeling Good

Deb Corbett, Grateful

My inspiration is the feeling of gratitude that despite all
the world’s troubles I am so grateful to fall into my art.

Nancy Roll, Emerging Day

I love observing something closely and
then trying to paint it because I feel like that
image then remains with me for a long time


Lauren Falls, Tanglewood 2019

Missing the places we would normally go.
  MY COVID theme has been “Color to “mask” the grey”


Sue Dragoo Lembo, Morning Glory

Morning Glory...my quiet time to find peace in the chaos

Ink of the Day

So along with working on a vintage bathing suit series, I am also working on a small alcohol inks series. Below is my Ink of the Day. I'm loving the stained glass effect.
