Tiny Portraits was Awe-some



So the class was this past Monday. It was awesome! 15 ladies and I all having so much fun. I didn’t bring a camera but two of the girls that came took some pics. I’ll post them when I get them. Thanks, Laura and Mary. Can’t wait to get them posted!

Thanks to Mary Benton for her nice words in her blog. I’m glad you loved the workshop so much.

This is the demo piece for the workhop.

AU – Tiny Portraits’ Update



Only one more week to have the “Tiny Portraits” Workshop at Art Unraveled. Almost forgot to buy the canvases for the students. I have a Supply Fee so I provide some goodies plus their canvas.

It’s been hectic the last few weeks. I have neglected the blog and a few important things in my life. My hubbie and my boys are not in that list :)

A fun sketch that will be supplied as an option piece to use as inspiration (!) Hope you and the students enjoy it.

Tiny Portraits Coming



Can’t wait until August 4th when I’ll be giving the workshop at Art Unraveled this year.

I’m working with the people attending getting their drawings and comps ready for that day.

We’ll work on a small piece and I want for everybody to get to work immediately. We’ll transfer the drawings, paint with acrylics and add 3-d elements.

to see a lamb at school”.

Illustrando desde España



Last July I took a workshop with the awesome Italian Children’s Illustrator, AnnaLaura Cantone. The class was held at La Fabbrica della Favole in Macerata, Italia.

Lost of mixed feelings from the loooooooong trip of 24 days around Italy. At the workshop I met an illustration buddy,
Marta Montañá. Her blog is pretty cool. Her artwork is
very whimsical and sweet. Un gusto conocerte, Marta!

Saludos desde el otro lado del charco, como tu dices.

Art Unraveled – The Class



Tiny Portraits
Have I mentioned that I’m giving a class in August? Yay! It will be part of Art Unraveled in Phoenix, AZ. Class shows my mixed media technique. You can read all about TINY PORTRAITS in the workshop’s site.

I’m excited and I look forward to it. I’m already prepping for it. I will complete some new pieces to show the guys at the class and will be posting images as I finish the new paintings.

Bravo Juana. Bravo Art Unraveled.

Picture Bookies – I’m back



Carrot and Blanky

I never got a chance to publish the final illustration of the sketch I placed back in November 06. Better late than never.

This week’s theme of PictureBookies gave me an excuse to get back to blogging. Not that I blogged much before.

Why wasn’t I posting? Work, always work. I promise to be better.

Until soon – hopefully.
