to live a creative life

I was in an art gallery in Asheville, NC when I took a photo of this quote on a wall. I added a few bells and whistles to it.

Regarding a creative life, my daughter is studying art there in Asheville and I thought I would share some of her artwork. Not that I’m partial or anything . . .

Do you remember Willie, Sebastian’s friend from this post?

This is the beginning of a sketch she made of him from the side. This is very rough compared to the final but I like the looseness of this drawing. It only took her a few minutes. That’s one talent I wish I had.

Here she is in the process. I love this photo of her so focused.

This piece is from an Art History class – a shrine – but I’m not sure what the assignment was specifically.

Now she is using it as inspiration for a print in her printmaking class.

This is a plate she created from a drawing she did for one of her first assignments in printmaking.

And below is a print from that plate. The process still has me a bit baffled. It’s like trying to understand the ins and outs of computers. As long as someone is there to explain it as they go along, I can get my head around it but if I try to tell someone else how it’s done, I’m completely at a loss.

Thankfully, it’s not something I have to know to appreciate the work!

    1. Hi Kays Kids,

      I have so many favorite quotes but this one was fairly new to me.

      Thank you so much - and of course, I agree with you. Wish I could take credit but alas, not my doing! :)

  2. I saw something similar to that last piece at an art show in Nashville.
    I'm the same, I can set my computer and printer up to scan but cannot explain how I do it to Honey Bear. I forget since I don't do it often and have to figure it out as I go.
    I can see your Daughter gets her artistic ability from her Mom.

    1. Hi Love Bears All Things,

      That's really interesting that you saw a similar piece. It's not only artist bears that have similarities I guess!

      Thanks so much!

  4. Oooh, I love her quick skeleton sketch and that shrine, those little skulls are so lovely!

    Absolutely amazing stuff! Your daughter is so talented.
    Heaven forbid she ever start making bears... I might as well just send my paycheck to your family then. -_-

    1. Hi Heather,

      Would you believe that those skulls started out as those tiny dime store babies? I guess we Brames love a makeover! Ha ha!

      You are so funny! (BTW, she did make a bear and it was really charming! She kept it for herself - I would have too!)

      Thank you!

    2. Do you have a picture of her bear? I think Sebastian should visit. :)

    3. Hi Heather,

      I'll have to go back through the files and see if I can find one. It was several years ago when she made it. Her first wone was so much better than my first 100!
