I decided I would redesign "feel the spirit". I wanted to change the background some. I kept the idea of a Native American mermaid in a canoe. I love water and trees. I grew up in a log house in the woods and we owned river front property, so I got to swim and play at the river a lot. I guess this is why I love drawing mermaids.
It's been a very long time since I posted anything on this blog. I've
been battle my health still and when I'm not doing that I've been
working on private art projects for friends of mine. I finally got done
with them and now I'm working on getting ready for a spring show and I'm
working on my website. I'm learning more CSS codes. I added a drop down
menu to my website and I'm working on a mobile version of it. I was
going to move the site back to Weebly, but Weebly's been having a lot of
bugs and whenever I make changes to the code it is fine for awhile, then
the website goes black. So I'm finding it's not going to be worth it.
So I'm working on moving my portfolio and email back to my main website.
My blog will be moved here to blogger. This will not effect
hollydurrart.com, because I'm just changing where the links will be
This Summer I hope to get the help I need to get my
health back on track. I've bee…
It's been a long time since I last post on this blog. I've been battling with my health for months now. At times it's been very discouraging. The one major blessing out of it, is I feel like trying anything and everything new with art. I finally dived into acrylic painting. I also have been wood burning a little. I got a bunch of supplies for sculpting, which I still need to get a few more things, before I start. There's still a lot of things I want to do, like oil painting and pebeo art. I want to eventually do handmade jewelry. I just don't mean regular jewelry like you see everyone else doing. I would like to design or sculpt the pendents. Right now I'm having a lot of fun with painting blank wooden frames with mermaid, fairy, and other fantasy themes. This one to the right is in my personal collection. I'm working on two right now. A unicorn theme for my daughter and dragon theme for my son. The kids are very excited and enjoy watching me work on them. …
Once again I'm battling my health and it's a lot more serious than before. For now I do not want to go into it. I'm just praying about it, waiting on the lord and praying for a healing.
A lot has happened since I last posted. My Father in-law passed. It was a shock, because it happened so fast. Then a little over a week ago, my Mother in-law's boyfriend passed away. There has been so much death in the family over the past few years. I'm ready for a break from all of it, but I know there is no choice in the matter.
I've been working on a project, off and on when I'm not battling my health. I'm only about 50% through it. It is different from my other works and I will be doing a lot of my future projects this way. I've learned a lot of new colored pencil techniques over the last couple of years. I'm really starting to add them into my works. I'm sorta leaning away from the heavy paintery style with mixed mediums, and wanting my work t…
