Greetings from Wilmington, DE


Hi everyone! Sorry for not being around for such a long time. You might be wondering why I wasn't active on here AT ALL.

Well, as some of you may know, my hubby and I lived in Florida last year. At the beginning of this past summer, we moved up to Delaware, and for four months lived at his parents' house and were working on renovating a small house that was offered to us for low rent (all this was such a blessing!). Now, we've been in our new home for a little over a week. It's been wonderful and so rewarding after all the hard work that had to be put into it.
(I will share pictures with you soon!)


So, not being able to unpack my art for four months, you can probably understand that it was quite difficult to just work. Now, slowly I am getting everything out off the boxes and looking forward to really get back into it all! (and also, I just really have to, because I am getting some wonderful Christmas orders and I don't want to keep my customers waiting).

From the little bit that I've done so far (being limited, I worked some on my drawing tablet... for that I really needed only a paper to sketch, camera to take a picture, and then my laptop and the tablet to work it all out), I can show you these few vector illustrations.

And I am getting back to custom portraits...



And for UniquelyEquine.com I'm preparing these offers (some are active already).

Painted Ornaments

Painted Stones

Painted Shells

Painted Wooden Plaques (various shapes available)


So that's about what is in my offer and I am looking forward to pull out everything I need to get into this! Please, pray that this is possible very soon and I can start working full time. (or at least part time). Thank you :)

And if you are interested in owning a piece like some of those I showed you, feel free to contact me! Kate(dot)art(at)live(dot)com

Have a great day, and a great rest of the week!
Love you all!

Art, Language and Teaching Opportunities

Watercolors, Illustrations, ACEOs, lots of Czech and English language, lots of energy at home and major lack of sleep. How can all of that exist together! This has been one serious week!

ART:

I continued The Girl and her Cat series and got as far as 5 illustrations. (showing the 5th one here. For the other ones, check out this post) After that, I needed a little break, but I will get back to it and create more pieces.



I took one morning to get back to one of my favorite styles, which is pure line art, and drew a Spring-inspired portrait! And I really do love this! 




(I love this style so much that I actually created a whole coloring book last year and if you like coloring and you are a mother or have a mother or a mother friend, this book is for you! It also has a section of encouraging Bible verses. It's called Treasure of the Heart and you should check it out!) ;)




Then yesterday I thought, wow, I haven't painted any ACEOs in a really long time! And unlike the usual theme which wou…

How to be a Good Artist when you're completely Eclectic

I am an artist. I love art. I love all the different styles, techniques, mediums. They inspire me, they challenge me, they grow me. But many times I was told that I can't do all of it if I want to be a good artist. 
That really confused me. I wanted to be a good artist, but I didn't want to give up everything that I love to do, and only pick one niche. Like, which one is it going to be? Am I going to focus only on portraits? Or only on cartoons? Or fashion designs? I love painting with watercolors too! Oh and don't get me started on realistic line art! Oh, and did you know there was this cool technique called Zentangle? I have to try that out too! Oh, guess what - I really love doing that too! Oh gosh... I am completely all over the place. This can't be good for my portfolio! How will I attract viewers? And more importantly, how will I keep them coming back, if the next time they come, they will see something completely different than what they "signed up" for…

Selfie Art Series and various techniques

Welcome back! I recently restarted my Youtube channel and doing an art series has been real fun. And I decided to do selfies because that gives me enough freedom to pick the pose, the expression, the lighting... and to make it more interesting, I am using different mediums and techniques. I record as I draw and then share them as fun speed-drawing videos. Here are the portraits I've done so far. 












Congratulations! You've made it through!
But really, thank you for coming and checking this all out!

Have you heard of Paint Party Friday? It's a fun way to be connected with other artists, cheer each other on and look forward to all the art-filled Fridays ahead!

With the warmest greetings possible at this time in March,
