not what I "should" be doing...

Don't know why I do what I do. Sometimes  (most times) there is no rhyme or reason. I have about 10 things I should be doing, but instead I pulled out this old painting and have begun to completely re-work it. I am just really into experimenting with different mediums, surfaces and subjects. It seems I am still searching to find my voice...or maybe I should say voices? LOL
Anyway this is what's on my drawing board today...
in progress...

 happy day! artfully yours, kristen

elf time

every year at Christmas time the elves always visit our home. Last year I actually caught one in the living room putting ornaments on the tree and another decorating the mantle! Here is what they looked like:
the Holidays are here...I am getting ready for the Elves! How about you?

Thai is my latest w/c painting, Patience, 22x36 on Arches 300lb cold press paper...
another experimental piece. I would definitely make some changes if I were to do it all over again. That is as it should be, I suppose. All in all, I am happy with it and am going to move on....

artfully yours,

let's go

If you recall I did "are we there yet" over the summer. I intended on doing a whole series of these wonderful, vintage trailers. Then life took over and I had to move and school started and I sorta got side tracked! Well, now I decided to revisit some of my sketches and work on this set some more. I really have an affinity for these happy lil' campers and I want to do at least 4 more....
here is number 2

and number 1 (in case you missed it!)
artfully yours,
