Happy Mother's Day

I decided, for a change of pace, to create a VLOG this week in celebration of Mother’s Day.

It's an overview of a day in the life of my creative practice.

Let's jump in!

I started the day today painting a watercolor goldenrod. I’m taking a wonderful class on Creativebug.com called Daily Painting Challenge: 31 Flowers to Paint with Yao Cheng. It’s fabulous.

Here's a short video of my painting process making today's flower.

Since Mother’s Day is this Sunday, my morning painting practice inspired me to create a hand-made Mother’s Day card. That prompted the idea to include a free tutorial for you so you can make one too!

Click on the image of my goldenrod below to access it. It's my gift to you.

Feel free to use it in your Mother’s Day card or for another occasion.

If you have your own artwork, please follow along in the tutorial and place your artwork on the card instead!

Here is today's VLOG with my Mother's Day's greeting followed by the free tutorial. ENJOY!

In the video, I mention one of my favorite resources: Teela Cunningham of Every-Tuesday.com. She teaches font-making, graphic design and offers free tutorials on her website and YouTube channel nearly every Tuesday. 

Download Kickstart Your Art Journey for a complete list of my favorite online art resources, what I love about them and how much each one costs.  

Happy Mother’s Day to all the Mom’s out there. And a very special Happy Mother’s Day to my own wonderful Mom, Ellen!!

Remember, It’s Never too Late to Create!
