Desert Blooms

Photos by Regina Lord

We’ve had an incredible spring and summer filled with an unusual and abundant amount of cactus blooms.  It is such a surprise, especially right now with the heat, to find a cactus in bloom.  The cactus are also fruiting from the spring blooms. I am excited to pick some prickly pears in late August and make some jelly and syrup!

Wind Dancing

8 x 10 acrylic on cradled wood panel

A fun little painting with dancing birds.  I had originally had only the clouds and the blooms, but it felt like it needed more. Some happy blackbirds did the trick.

Coffee Art

Coffee Art by Regina Lord

I’m going to be hanging art at a local coffee shop in September, and thought it would be fun to paint a few coffee themed pieced.  They are small 6×6 inches on flat panels.  I still have to mount and frame them.

Have a happy and bright day!

Always Be Kind

Art by Regina Lord

I have a daily planner that I love to draw in with PITT pens and black ink markers. The paper is slightly glossy, which makes using markers a lot more fun than on regular paper. Right now, my favorite black pen is called IDenti Pen by Sakura. It’s permanent with a dual-point.  I didn’t really like it at first, but it has really grown on me and I use it all the time.

I am hoping to make more fun little videos like this in the future.

Check out the article I wrote for Cloth Paper Scissor’s Zen Doodle Workshop magazine.  It’s all about zen doodles on rocks, something I LOVE to do.

The article explains, step by step, on how to make them, what inks and supplies I use and ideas for how to use them.

Pastel Portraits & Pirates

It was pirates.

They hijacked me, my computer and our water heater. That is why I’ve been missing for the last month.  Really, pirates.

So yes, I’ve had a trying month of May.  I finally had my surgery to remove my appendix, which was way more painful that I thought it would be. Hello my good friend, Percocet. I’m not really into pain medications, by the way, but they were very needed. Then, I got a pesky and even more painful infection at one of my incision sites.  Insert antibiotics for another TEN days. Yay.

And just when I’m starting to feel better and able to sit upright, our hot water heater breaks and floods the laundry room, while the hubby is out of town, of course.  Fortunately, it was a recalled thingamajig, so we didn’t have to pay a thing to get it fixed. Amazing!

Two days later my computer crashes.  Dead.  Hello new computer.  This happened last summer too, but somehow managed to milk another year out of my poor computer.

Now, I am almost feeling completely back to normal, I have a new computer with all of my forty thousand (!!) photo images transferred, and all of the household appliances seem to be in working order.  Fingers crossed.  Especially for the air conditioner.  It is summer.  Think 100+ degrees… everyday….for the next 5 months…at least…

Okay.  I’m done moaning and groaning.

Now, I am in the midst of video recording another e-course.  Portraits. I am pretty, pretty excited about what I have to share this time around.  I’ve been playing a lot with my new Sennelier soft pastels, trying to decide if I should include a pastel lesson too. I probably will because they are SO MUCH FUN!

I have more to share. I promise to be back soon.
