It's been three years-yikes!

A lot has changed in three years.  We moved to Lancaster PA to be close to our son's family and three grand kiddos.  So now those three are my new students. We have a cat named Theo who just happens to have mittens with 6 toes on each.  I still adore drawing in Procreate on my iPad.  I love the rolling Amish hills and hearing the clip clops of the buggies as they pass.  And Fireflies-oh my is there anything more magical!

I will leave this blog up in case anyone wants art lessons for their kiddos.  But now I post my art on instagram as 'PamHolderman" and hopefully will keep my website more updated than here.  Links are above and on the side.. Enjoy.

Notebook I want to make and put all of my art ideas into.
I found this old book cover and hope to give it a new life.

Bootcamp 2017 begins

I am yet again taking part in "Make Art That Sells" Bootcamp.
This month's assignment is to draw an abstract pattern for a backpack.
I chose to give it a floral twist and add embroidery and embellish with buttons.
Just what I need for gardening.
Now if our weather would just cooperate so I could begin planting.
Patience is much needed.

This class is designed for beginners and traditional artists looking to expand their abilities while still having fun. Bring a friend and see how fun it is to create and manipulate art digitally.

Spring is right around the Corner

 Ready for spring!
 So is my color palette.
 And of course flowers are in my head spilling out onto the canvas.
