Let's Get Your Creative Juices Flowing!!!
Just before I left for my road trip up to Boston (must have had a little seafood deliciousness on my mind!), I made this crabby crab. His expression reminds me a little of my boys when I tell them no more screens. LOL!
Not gonna lie. I kinda had a blast making him;)
In this project's vid, I show you my whole process from blank canvas...
To laying down some acrylics... Nope, I don't have time to wait for the paint to dry, so I use a heat gun or hair dryer basically always!
To cantankerous crab! Haha!!
If you're a member of the Mixed Media Society at AwesomeArtSchool.com, I'm so psyched to let you know that this guy is your June lesson!!! I KNOW!!!
So if you're looking to learn how to create this dude in REAL TIME with me, from scratch, head on over to AwesomeArtSchool.com, log into your account, and begin the paint date! The lesson is in the classroom entitled, "Official Mixed Media Society Lessons."
When you're done, show me a pic!!! I wanna see!

Thank you for letting me know who the artist was as I genuinely didn't know. I'm going to update the blog post right now with the artists info! I wish Pinterest was a better resource for artists, so many pins get separated from the artists who upload their work (which is why I didn't know her name), Thanks so much and I will make the update. In the future you can reframe from the rude comments. If you have a suggestion or do have something that I need to correct I am here, will listen and will be more than happy to do it. Thank you.

Karen, you are absolutely fabulous! You make me feel like I can draw anything. I have recently retired and finally have the time to do some of the art that I have loved since I was in school. I am really at the beginning of my art journey and I hope to learn as much as I can. Thank you for all you do.
