I have been inspired by Kelly Rae Roberts' artwork since i came across it last year sometime, and it has really fueled my desire to paint more and more. I am still struggling with trying to find my own style and of course trying not to compare myself to all those great artists whose work truly speaks to me..Kelly Rae's second article in CPS was awesome, and she detailed how she creates her wonderful works of art. So in trying to find MY OWN style lately i have decided to give myself a break and learn some tips and techniques from others, taking in the ideas and creativity that sometimes escapes me. So here is what i have been doing with my paints and brushes as of late...just for fun.

This is my latest art journal page. I was having trouble working on this these past few months since surgery but i finally got this one finished. It's just about planting seeds of hope and positivity and truth. That has become what my intentions are for this new me, this new life that still intermingles with the old one....
