Good morning, and happy Tuesday, Instagram friends! Today, I'm getting in the mood for some winter! Join me at 1pm MST (noon PST/3pm EST) for the premier of my newest painting tutorial, Winter Morning. This is a pretty simple painting, and a lot of fun! Check the link in my profile for the event. See you there! OOOH! Don't forget that my brushes are still on sale through November 30th! βœŒοΈπŸ’›πŸŽ¨ @fredrixcanvas #FredrixCanvas #RedLabelCanvas #winterpainting #imreadyforsomesnow #acrylictutorial #youtubeartist #artistsofinstagram #grabsomecocoa @liquitexofficial #Liquitex #liquitexheavybody #liquitexbasics #acrylicpaint #PaintingWithJane #artmonstersquad #peaceloveart

Back to the saga of the strange colored mystery spot I shared with you last week. I finished my painting, so I'm sharing it with you as promised. I don't usually allow myself the time to really drill down into details the way I really want to. A lot of that is due to time constraints in videos, but I'm also impatient, haha! My goal with this painting was to take details further than I typically allow myself, and I couldn't be happier with the outcome! Swipe through to see the full painting. This was a great challenge, and I feel like I'm a stronger artist for it. I know we're coming into the holiday season, and that's a super busy time for everyone, but I challenge you to find little snippets of time, wherever you can, to make some YOU-time. Work on something all for yourself, and just enjoy the process. Happy Thanksgiving to my American Art Monsters. And to all of you all over the world, I'm so thankful for every single one of you βœŒοΈπŸ’›πŸŽ¨ #buddhapainting #zenart #challengeyourselfeveryday #acrylicpainting #happythanksgivng #PaintingWithJane #artmonstersquad #artoftheday #artistsofinstagram #flexyourartmuscles #peaceloveart @liquitexofficial #liquitexheavybody #Liquitex

Happy Tuesday, everyone! Today I'm using a 6x6-in @fredrixcanvas to demonstrate a new technique I'm really excited about! I've been experimenting painting with a spoon for a couple of years now, and after getting a ton of questions regarding palette knife alternatives last week, I figured now was the perfect time to bring the techniques to you! Click the link in my bio for the video. I'll be premiering it live at 1pm MST (noo PST/3pm EST), and I hope you'll join me!

Happy Friday, friends! Today I'm working on something that I'm SO excited to share with you! It's not quite ready, though, so instead of sharing that, I thought I'd share some progress on that one little spot of my personal painting I showed you the other day. Yes, this is that same nightmare-color spot! The more layers I add, the more the colors start to meld and become something I could never get through mixing. That's my very favorite part of layering. That and I know I don't have to commit to any one layer. If it's not right, I cover it with another. Eventually I'll settle on the right one, but all of those layers, whether mistakes or not, help create the final personality of the piece. Much like people and how the experiences we have in life, the things we do, the mistakes we make, make us into the people we are, right?

If you want to see what I'm working on today, make sure you're subscribed to my YouTube channel (link in bio), and join me on Tuesday for a new video. Also, tell me what your working on this weekend! Are you doing anything just for you?! #whatwillitbe #metime #zentime #dontbeafraidofinsanecolors #doitfortheprocess #PaintingWithJane #artmonstersquad #Liquitex #liquitexheavybody @liquitexofficial

One of my favorite things in the world is when I take the time to paint for myself. There's no pressure to perform, no time constraints, no thoughts of "will it be good enough." Just me, my thoughts, my decisions at the moment, and a painting I can watch evolve and change for hours, days, or even weeks! I don't take enough of this time for myself, but when I do, I'm reminded of what a special and magical thing creating is. Too often, I approach it like work. I mean, it IS my job, but it's wonderful to experience painting as a form of meditation, me-time, creativity, experimentation, and play. It's really a refreshing thing.
Here's a super close-up shot of a piece I'm currently working on. Maybe I'll show you the whole thing when it's done. I tend to keep my personal work close, because showing it off, especially when it's so different from my tutorials, is really an exposing thing to do, and it makes me feel super vulnerable. That said, I've got some plans for this one, and I think the evolution from this to the final piece I have in mind is going to be quite dramatic! I'll share how this little spot changes.

Have a beautiful week, friends. Please take some time for you this week, whether it's the whole week, or 10 minutes. Do something that is only for you βœŒοΈπŸ’›πŸŽ¨ Current colors on board: Dioxazine Purple, Cadmium Orange, Ultramarine Blue, Payne's Grey. Just a nightmare of bright, contrasting colors, haha!
