Perfect Christmas Gifts for Your Artistic Friends 2016

Can you believe it? It’s almost the end of 2016! But before we get to the end, of course there’s Christmas to be celebrated. That’s in less than 3 weeks. Are you as excited as I am?

And no matter how horrible 2016 has been for a lot of people, Christmas is always a great time to not just appreciate and give thanks to Jesus, but also to appreciate the people in our lives.

I know a lot of artists, and I like thinking of myself as an artist too *wink*, so I thought it would be a good idea to come up with a Christmas Gift Guide for Artists. These are essentially the things that I would want to receive myself haha!

Ready? Here we go!

The BGC Art Mart Experience 1.0

I consider myself a bazaar newbie, as the recently concluded BGC Art Mart (September 27 and 28, October 4 and 5) was only the second bazaar I’ve participated in.

Wildflower Watercolor Timelapse

The husband has been wanting to document my painting process since the Hyperlapse app came out, and of course, I wanted to see what my painting looked like from an outsider’s perspective.

It took a while to find the perfect time to do it, but we finally got the chance when we decided to work at M&S Food in BHS Central. The lighting was good enough and there weren’t too many distractions around us.

This is 1 of 3 Wildflower girls I painted for this weekend’s BGC Art Mart, to be sold as a postcard print set. Don’t forget to drop by! We’ll be in front of Brothers Burger High Street on September 20, 21, 27, and 28 at 4-9PM.

August 2014 Favorites

It’s now September, and time flies really fast, doesn’t it? I didn’t even notice it until a few days ago because August was such a busy month, with a lot of new discoveries and events. No wonder I had a hard time just narrowing it down to just a few, but I finally and successfully chose the ones closest to my heart (and tummy).

Presenting, my August 2014 favorites!
