With yet another mess on my sun room table to share with you today, you may be interested in an update on how the art studio is coming along.
Yes, no, maybe?
Well, as of this week, it is all wired for the electricity. So we’re happy to have that part finished.
Also, the entire studio is all primed and painted. Which is just all white. I’m thinking that would be pretty boring photos for you all. But it sure looks a lot nicer, and brighter, then it did, with just the sheet-rock. I believe the ceiling is next, and that may be something to see. We’re going with something a little different than traditional, with that. So stay tuned if you care to see.
No big story on this ‘Social ShareIt’. I think the statement speaks for itself, and the heart I painted is just what I envisioned for it.
This was a challenging painting, trying to get the effect I wanted. I was going for a glow or light from within the heart. Watercolor painting is such an ongoing learning experience, for me. There are so many techniques you can use, to get different effects. I can feel myself learning more and more, each time I paint, and it only adds fuel to the fire. I just want to paint more and more. Wet on wet is always fun, and it really pushes me, because I need to work quickly.
After scanning it into the computer, and adding some text design, here is the finished ‘Social ShareIt’ . . . .
I was pleased with how it came out.
On Facebook, you can share this creation, “Love is the Beauty of the Soul’, or any other ShareIts we have so far, from our Facebook Page’s ‘Social ShareIt’ Album.
On Pinterest, you can repin from our ‘House Of Joyful Noise Social ShareIts’ Board, or you’re welcome to just pin it right from this post.
More of what we’ve been up to, and some other show-and-tell, coming up soon.
Let us know what you think of this new ‘Social ShareIt’ below, and thanks so much for swinging by!

So pretty – I love the depth you gave the heart with your shading! So pretty!
Beautiful! I love the contrast of colors in the heart!
I am just getting started with watercolors, and I am clueless. The heart is beautiful. Scanning art backgrounds and playing with text is a favorite thing of mine too.
Can’t wait to see the studio!
Well keep painting, Johnnie!! It really is a learning process. The more you paint, the more you truly ‘get to know’ each paintbrush, how colors react differently on the paper, the magic of different techniques, etc. Another tip: Google watercolor painting tutorial videos online! You can get lots of help that way, and they are just fun to watch, to me. For example, I have been painting for years, but recently learned (watching a video) how to paint with a little bleach, to lift the color back to white! I was all excited to try that one. You are so talented, I’m sure you’ll get the swing of it all in no time, if you’re into it. Have fun! I can’t wait to see the studio (done!), either! LOL
Beautiful! So excited for you and your new art studio 🙂 This heart would make lovely watercolor notecards – scanned and printed on watercolor or each one handpainted…etsy shop maybe? Cause your hands aren’t full enough already 😉
Thanks, Michelle. : ) Right, idea #6,892. LOL. I’ve thought of selling note cards too, but after the cost of printing high quality cards on beautiful card stock, (as would be my standard), to turn profit, I think I’d have to charge more than most people would spend. I might try someday though.
