Mixed Media Wood Board


Many of you did not follow my old art site The Creator’s Leaf. The one before Artangeology. Occasionally I am going to pull out one of those tutorials and repost it here and today is one of those days. This was a super fun project and it currently lives in Alabama with a sweet family… Continue Reading

Watercolor Art With no Ink Lines


Hahaha! Yes, I realize that grab-your-attention photo is not a watercolor. I’ll get to that in a minute. But first, watercolor flowers ­čÖé .

Another Storm Coming


Snow? Yes, we have some. This cemetery is about 1/4 mile from our house, on the same road we live on. One thing different about cemeteries in Maine from what I am used to is the size of the stones. Many such places down south require flat-to-the-ground headstones to make cutting the grass easier. If… Continue Reading

Some of My Bible Journaling
