Joanne Fan

I am a Joanne Sharpe fan.
I have taken her on line classes since her first (I think) Letter Love.
I even got to take a couple of classes from her in person when she came to 
Whim So Doodle in St Petersburg, FL.
So when she started her on line classes in January, Draw your Awesome Year, I was all in.
Because I am working, I am not quite up with the group but I am plodding
along, doing my own thing and once again, enjoying it immensely.
My word of the year...yet again
Here's a sampling
To begin...

Joanne is such a great teacher and these classes are on your computer for forever.
Her themes are POSITIVE and just a great cure for a grey day.
Grey day???  We haven't had any of those lately, have we?
We can make our own sunny day.
Happy PPF!

A Simple Valentangle

This weeks Diva challenge was to do a "Valentangle".
Work has definitely cut into my tangling time.  I even have a hard time
keeping up in my Tangle a Day calendar, something I have been
religious about for 2 ½ years.
Scratched this out this AM, spritzed a little water color, and
called it "done".

Feeling tropical

It has been cool, drippy and grey in Florida lately.
We don't have much patience with grey weather.
We take our blue skies for granted.

So this week, I created a nice tropical background with water colors
on yupo paper.
Decided it needed a parrot so used acrylics on the background.
Happy PPF

Caged Butterflies

Jailed Johnnie is a toughie.  
One of my problems was no matter how I drew it, I saw butterflies.
So call mine "caged butterflies.
