New for June 2018

ACEO by Lynne Furrer

I didn’t think I’d ever get back into making ACEO/Artist Trading Cards, but I got inspired to do some watercolor faces and I loved them! It’s a great way to practice complementary colors. Here I used burnt sienna and turquoise.

These are small, collectibles or great with a mat on a stand. In the past, I did a lot of florals, selling them on Ebay. Many of the collectors were doll house hobbiests and used these little originals as paintings in the doll house rooms! I never knew what fun people have with these little gems (just google search Artist Trading Cards for more info).

They also make great gifts! You can find these in my Etsy shop…

In the goddess class, we worked on bone wisdom and slow stitching, a meditative way to just stitch with thread or yarn and make whatever type of stitch comes naturally. Even if everything is a straight stitch, it’s perfectly okay. The goal is to just calm down and breathe.

These two ladies made their entrance this month and I can’t wait to do more! I added a vintage lace veil and slow stitched a suede border. Suede is thick! She might go on the cover of my goddess

journal later.

Mixed media and faces were calling me this month and I completed 3 ladies with ephemera and acrylics.

I had just finished reading several chapters from the Wild Woman book by Clarissa Estes about initiating intuition by first killing (her words) the too good mother. She’s the one that makes everything nicey-nice and lectures to be subservient to get along with everyone. While young, she’s needed, but after that a woman has to find her wilder side. This writing is really influencing my work! And a great read besides.

See you next month and happy painting!

    1. Thank you so much! I know you like to see all the new stuff in one place, but I’m getting a little bored with writing my “new this month” postings. Maybe I should do smaller, but more frequent posts. *sigh
