Day 92: Black line What I love about this project? To have every day the possibility to get my ideas, my feelings painted/drawn. Today it is a thick black line. :) As if I painted it with a thick brush but I used a thin one. ;) I‘m already thinking about the time after this project and I‘m just saying „lines“. :) Goodnight! #artistmeetsmother #artistsoninstagram #artwork #artoftheday #creativelifehappylife #100dayproject2019 #day92 #makeart2019 #painting #watercolor #justblack #blackline #lines #justoneline #theademilos

White cosmos in a Ball canning jar with blue background. I am easing my way back into working post surgery and I am enjoying the process. I have been working on a few watercolor pieces, only this one has taken and gotten finished, as recuperating has been my most important focus these past several days.⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ One of the most enjoyable aspects of living a creative career is the opportunities to explore different mediums, and it has been so fun to play more with watercolor.⁠⠀ ⁠⠀ Stay tuned because the "From Garden to Vase" collection will become available to the public on Tuesday, September 10th at 12 noon EST! If you receive my newsletter you will get an early preview of the collection, signup with link in profile. As always, thank you! 😊⁠⠀ .⁣⠀⁠⠀ .⁣⠀⁠⠀ .⁣⠀⁠⠀ #elizabethfloyd #elizabethfloydart #elizabethfloydwatercolor #makearteveryday #makeart2019 #watercolor #thecreativehabit #everydaymoments #dahlias #gardenflowers #dahliawatercolor #floralart #fineart #painting #creative #artoftheday #blueandwhite #frederickcarlfrieseke #easterntigerswallowtail #easterntigerswallowtailbutterfly #booksinpaintings #booksinart #victoriamagazine @victoriamagazine @teatimemagazine @flowermagazine

In a few weeks I’ll be going back to school full time for nursing👩‍⚕️. While I’m extremely excited for this new adventure, I’m also pretty nervous.😬 I’ve been out of school for over 5 years working and I definitely have some anxiety about getting back into the rhythm of things.. 😅 It will definitely be a challenge balancing studying, working, social life and hobbies! All I can do though is stay positive and remember change is a good thing 💜 how do you stay balanced?. “When life gives you lemons” 6x6 -$20 Available.

I'm sure you've heard the old adage about the cobbler whose children have no shoes, right? He's so busy and focused on making shoes for everyone else that he has neglected to take care of his own children's shoe needs. Well, have you heard the one about the artist that doesn't make art? No?That's ok because I just made it up 😝 The fact is that as much as I love art and making art, it usually ends of being put on the back burner so I can focus on all the other things required to run a creative business. Any of you other creative ladies feel me? 🙋 The truth is, as creatives, we can't neglect the very thing that feeds our soul. For me, making art is so much more than just smooshing some paint around or building something out of nothing - it's where my heart and mind can truly let go. It's where I feel the most alive...the most like ME! When I don't have that creative component, the work I do feels more labored - like a duller version of itself. It's only in the last few weeks that I've realized just what a detriment putting art making on the back burner has been for me mentally, emotionally, and even spiritually. If you are like me and have been neglecting your creativity, let's flip the script right here and now. Let's get our hands covered in paint, illustrate those ideas that have been brewing, make those collages, get in the zone and lose ourselves in our art 👩‍🎨 I'm committing to giving myself uninterrupted studio time during the week to just play and explore new ideas and I hope you'll do the same. I promise the time will be well sent and your soul will thank you!

Yesterday was a fun little girl and I spent almost half a day at the nursery picking up planters and indoor plants for our new home. Check out today’s story for our very first succulent/cactus arrangement! Speaking of flowers and gardens, here is my very first painting done at Casa Fiori this summer. I am not quite sure whether I like this or not, but I know for sure that I want to paint another version of this beautiful entrance. 11x14 oil on panel.

#Repost @erikaleesears ・・・ This weeks #artdare was summer 🍹. @teddiparkerart @whoa_nelson @not_sorry_art 😋 and after this week I need it. I have been crafting every night getting ready for Nora’s 7th birthday party this Saturday and the theme is a Pokémon painting party. All the kids are going to be painting and so there is no pressure at all for me to do all the drawings of the different Pokémon characters. 😬😂 #makeart2019 . . . #contemporarypainting #contemporaryart #art #oilpainting #painting #artaddict #artoftheday #dailyart #artfinder #artistsoninstagram #art #arte #artsy #artstagram #instaart #artlife #artaddict #artofinstagram #artcollector #artcurator #art 🎨 #artlovers #fineart #stilllife #artstudio

I finally got gouache and I'm probably using it wrong but it is so satisfying all the same. I love Bison so naturally that's my first subject. I'm not 100% don't with this guy but I'm happy so far. I need to let it dry before I add any more. Gouache and pen on @strathmoreart mixed media paper, 9x12

An auction for this piece will be held right here on my Instagram story starting tonight @ 7 p.m. and will end on Sunday, August 25th @ 10 p.m. CST. Bidding will start at a minimum of $100 + shipping. I started this painting as an experiment. I didn't know how it would turn out and there was no real plan, but I felt the call to be creative and ended up zoning out & doing this instead of cooking dinner - my usual process when it comes to painting, lol. I love how it turned out. On another note, its always difficult to name your own works of art, but I've decided to call this one "B-Sides". 24x12 inches

Lately, I’ve tried to focus more on the joy of painting rather than on the outcome ✨ When I’m having fun painting a piece, I usually end up loving the outcome anyways- and the opposite is true as well 😂😄These florals have been a joy to paint! 🌈🌸🌟💕 • (16x20 inches on paper, acrylic & gouache) #floralstagram • • • • • • • • • • • #acrylicpainting #acrylicpaint #doitfortheprocess #creativeprocess #instaartist #artist #paintersofinstagram #artistsoninstagram #artistofinstagram #dailyart #colorful #create #creative #creativelifehappylife #maker #makersmovement #makeart2019 #makeart #emergingartist #carveouttimeforart #art #contemporaryart #interiordesign #painter #livecolorfully #paintingoftheday #artoftheday #dailyart #paintingaday

I wrote these back in June and never got a chance to share them. I talk about a lot of hard subjects in my little corner and I always feel like they connect better after I use myself as an example. So here we go: ARTIST CONFESSIONS 🙊 • 1. I doubt my abilities when my painting isn’t going well (hello expectations and ugly stage) 2. I know my voice is unique but I still worry no one cares. (Imposters Syndrome has been a close friend lately 🙄) 3. When things don’t sell, I rethink EVERYTHING. I’m what’s known as a destructive thinker 😂 4. When I don’t hear back from a client I sold a painting to, I worry they hate it. After selling a lot of paintings, I’ve started to get used to this and figure they’d contact me if something’s wrong 😂 5. Sometimes I think I don’t have what it takes to be an artist. If you follow my arrow on page, I fought back with a simple: YOU DO. • It doesn’t matter where an artist is on their journey, they still have doubts and fears just like every other artist out there! Pursue those dreams regardless of the fear. You have to push past it and step into the artist you were meant to be: a confident, thriving artist. 💕
