Spent the morning in my art studio. Got to get out my paints and get messy! I have a few ideas on what to do with these round canvas panels. Today, it was mirror ball time. It aint a party, till the mirror ball gets going!

I moved to the other side of the park (outer Richmond) and then to upper Castro, before making the journey to the other side of the Bay.
We love doing day trips into the City – often going to the restaurants we onced took for granted. Love my City by the Bay!
This house painting is of my childood home in Syosset, NY. I lived there from 1st grade through college. I loved going in to NYC and driving out to Jones Beach or Cold Spring Harbor. We had great pizza and bagels nearby. Lots of fun memories.
We will be discussing “The Tea Girl of Hummingbird Lane” – by Lisa See. I really enjoyed this book – it really captures the life of Akah minority in China and how their way of life changed so quickly during the Revolution era. I recommend this book!
Art done in Procreate – I am learning more each day how to use this amazing art software. I have had MANY duds and I know that this is part of the process. I am happy with how this one came out. Source Image by Tess Pixy256 from Pixabay
Hummingbirds bring me such joy. For a little bird, they are surprisingly loud. I love when they stop for a few sips in my hummingbird feeder. It gives me a brief moment of joy. I can only imagine the impact of our poor air quality on their systems.
More playing with Procreate! I just uploaded some new brushes and I cannot wait to give them a try. This Seymour painting was done with the original set. Although there’s a ton of brushes with the app purchase, I found that many are too specialized. I would like to move to a more illustration look. More exploring!
Done in Procreate – I love the subtle hues of Sempervivum. Whenever I come across these, I usually take a picture. They are so pretty with their rosettes and the many blue and green hues.
I am officially acquiring the knack of Procreate. There’s so much to learn! I have also learned that I will need to get more brushes!
More experimenting in Procreate. I am totally having fun with this app. My daughter just got herself a pair of rollerskates. I have the song “Brand New Key” stuck in my head. I LOVED that song back in the day. I hummed and sang that song when I put on my strap-on skates. I later advanced to real quads in a roller-rink. Lots of fun memories!
