Week 27- Butterfly Kisses

This piece has taken me all summer long.  The black in the butterfly took the longest, so this took a lot of patience.  This summer has bee filled with dragonflies and butterflies, there are still more to go, so keep your eyes open.  I also worked on another piece this weekend, but it is not complete.  I will continue to finish the airbrushing and the details in the up coming week.  Be aware of the wonders around you.

Week 26 - Night Flight

This week I have been working on dragonflies.  Summer had felt like it was winding down, but today it revived itself quite well.  Here's to late nights, summer adventures, lightning bugs, and dreams coming true.
Have a great week living each moment to the fullest. There is beauty in the world around you now, take in so you can remember it later.

Week 24 - Foggy day at Stinson Beach - Complete

Here is the completed piece from my day at the beach. Fog is an tricky and interesting thing to put over a landscape.  I think I will try this on other pieces as well.

Week 25 - Pink Lemonade - a soft pastel Plumeria for summer

by Dawn Marie Black

Sounds of summer, splashing water in the back ground, ocean breezes, kids laughing...
I am fond of these sounds, sights, fragrances, and they have been distracting me lately.  This brilliant weather is what we all miss during the dark months of winter.

This piece decided it's own fate, as I could not put the dark background on this piece, it was so alive and ready for bright summer living.  I am still learning to enjoy these moments of artwork speaking to me as I contemplate the final  touches.

Enjoy the summer, and all of it's pleasures.  Let life move you.
