Magnolias - Art by Regina Lord

Acrylic on 20 x 24 inch canvas

flowers works in progress

I didn’t think I would ever get this painting done. I have several paintings half done right now and finally decided to sit down and finish just one.  Now, I feel ready to conquer all the others.  One at a time.

I saw this quote this morning and I really love it. Thought it would be fun to write it out with a PITT pen in my new journal. The ink actually did very well with the handmade paper.

Happy Friday!!

Happy Day

I had a very happy day out with my hubby yesterday.  First, a latte at my favorite coffee place.

Then a trip to the Tucson Museum of Art to see the current exhibits.

Then, dinner and dessert with the kids. The cake was AMAZING!! A chocolate tres leche.  Mmmmmm.

Thank you so much for all the birthday wishes and all the orders from my sale!

xoxo, Regina

I always like to paint faces when I am feeling a little stuck and unsure what to do next.

Web stuff and books

2014 books

I really love listening to a good book on audio.  I like to listen while I paint. I get so much more work done when I do this.  It just gets me into the most beautiful flow.

These are the books I read in 2014. I loved Life of Pi, The Help, The Elegance of a Hedgehog, The Book Thief and The Goldfinch the most, I think.  I can’t wait to start on my list for 2015. My goal is 30 books.

CreativeKismet website

Lately, I’ve been spending a lot of time updating my website. Updating images fixing a few things. I still have a ton more work to do, but it is so time consuming and sometimes very mind boggling.

Creative Kismet Portfolio

I changed the portfolio page and added all the images for painting I did in 2014.

I’ve also added more original paintings to my webshop and taken the original canvas paintings out of my etsy shop.

And for those of you have been following me for a while, you might remember that I have a HUGE etsy sale happening this weekend. Stay tuned!

House of Love, Art by Regina Lord

Welcoming 2015!!

Happy New Year!!

We traveled north after Christmas, and got to experience the warm sun, some blizzarding snow and drizzling rain.  It was quite the adventure! Then we came home just in time to welcome the new year. The kids are at the stage where they want to stay up all night and they want us to be up all night with them. Ugh! It is getting harder and harder to stay up that late!

When we travel to visit family, I always take a few art supplies with me. It is really hard for me to not be able to create, draw, doodle (anything!) for 4-5 days straight. So I took a few pens, charcoal pencils and my Inktense pencils and was able to play a bit during the quiets moments of our trip. It also helps to calm me in stressful or uncomfortable situations.

I’ve been told that Inktense pencils (water soluble pencils by Derwent) fade over time, but I’ve not had any issues with this happening. I mostly only use them in my art journal or little 4×6 inch pieces of watercolor paper. I think they are really fun to use and play with, specially when traveling.  The kids like them too.

I also did a couple of charcoal sketches and white ink (jellyroll pen) on black paper doodles and lettering.

I am currently working on getting original paintings on my website, picking my word (or words) for the year and planning what is next! So much to think about and do.

Thank you to everyone who has supported and appreciated my art and what I do! 

Thank you for a great year!!!
