On my art table...

Sometimes you just have to go for it. I am no artist. No training. No anything...except a box of watercolors, a stash of pencil crayons which I love, some pencils, a needed eraser, and a whole lot of hoping. I copy from books. You know how that goes~it is impossible to get what someone else got in the first place. But you know what? I love my work. I hate it too but try to turn the hate into something positive...rename the 'dislike' it. I am working on a watercolor (pencil crayon) face for a paper artdoll that I am doing. Here is my art table set up on my bathroom vanity (I live in a small studio apartment), and here is the beginning of a face. The eyes go one way, the nose one way, the lips the other; but so do faces, really.
Well, just wanted to pop in to show you what I am doing these days. *smiles* Norma


  1. Norma..I'd have never known you've had no "art training"..but, aren't most artists born with the talent? you certainly were!! it's fabulous!xo

  2. Hi Norma
    I too struggle with drawing but I see so many of these neat arty faces around lately that I had to try one. I did one on a scrap piece of paper and it didn't turn out half bad. I think we restrict ourselves more by saying we can't do something, we should just let go and try never know what may happen. I love your face, I think you should continue and like anything, the more you practice the better you get.
    Thanks for dropping by my blog as well. Always nice to see you visit.

  3. Making something that brings you joy is what it's all about. Everyone is creative and you certain follow your creative spirit and banish that critic, kudos to you, your words are an inspiration! Keep it going Norma. xox Corrine

  4. Thank you everyone, for your words of encouragement; you cheer me on to do more faces. *smiles* Norma

  5. I love seeing peoples work spaces, so much fun to have a peak into how another artist works!


Your comments make my day! Thanks for dropping by and we'll see you soon, I hope, *smiles* Norma
