A Forward View for 2021

I always love setting up a blank canvas to begin a new painting, along with the challenge and satisfaction each new project brings. Now that we are on Day 2 of 2021, I am looking forward to the wonderful new possibilities of this coming year… new moments shared with family and friends, new experiences and yes, the opportunity to be creative.

Looking back over last year, I am so glad to have had the opportunity to paint and be creative, as well as get together with close friends and family – even with this pandemic. I am appreciative of the many positive comments and support this blog has brought and I hope that all who read my blog and have seen my work are able to enjoy a happy “moment time”.

Here is a 9 painting sampling from 2020

Looking back at 2020

No matter your location or hobby you enjoy, I pray 2021 brings you good health and happy times.

Cheers, Yolande

Changing Things Up

12” x 16” on watercolor paper

It’s been awhile since I have done mixed media and it was fun to work on this Saguaro Cactus using graphite pencil and watercolor.

I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas filled with joy and are able to be with family and friends. 🎄

Figurative Work

“Autumn Joy” (16” x 20” oil on linen)

Some scenes just make me smile. I have always loved the youthful honesty and energy of young children and although this scene was taken quite a few years back, the joy and happiness in my daughter’s face led me to finally get this painting done.🎨
