Wanderlust 2017: Weeks 1 & 2

My life has been almost completely consumed with the house renovations the last few days. I'm almost ready to give you another update (it's awesome!), but need to edit pictures first. Before I work on that, I thought I'd share the couple of items I created as part of Wanderlust 2017. In my last post, I mentioned that Pat gave me a membership to the classes as one of my Christmas gifts.

Here's the journal page I created for the first week.

For week 2, I made this canvas.

I'm pretty excited about the colors in this canvas and can't wait to hang it just as soon as the renovations come to an end.

The Wanderlust journey has been fun and given me something extra to look forward to each week. As I said before, it's the gift that just keeps giving!


  1. They are both so gorgeous! I am in awe as always of your creativity.

  2. I saw this colorful piece of work on your other social media sites. I didn't realize it was a canvas. I love it! Over the summer I want to try painting something on canvas...something abstract with a lot of color. You're always an inspiration to me!

    1. Lorraine,
      Thank you so much! Yeah, the teacher did hers on some sort of canvas so I decided to try to do one as well. You do canvases all the time, even if they are tiny. A larger one shouldn't scare you!! Besides, canvases seemed to be priced inexpensively when they're on sale (Michael's had them priced almost nothing last week - alas I missed that sale). AND, if you mess up. . .you can just gesso over the whole thing and start over. I'm learning to be more brave in my art. I know you can do that - look at everything you've done already. You're an inspiration to me as well. I adore your mini canvases.
      Thanks so much for the kind words and for stopping by to share them. It means so much!


Thanks for stopping by! It means so very much to me. I love to hear what you have to say.

Winding down the 100DayProject

I awoke the other day with many thoughts about the 100 Day project and decided to jot them down here to share with you. Some of the bits I g...
