introducing Laly Mille of @lalymille

Take a look at Laly’s Process:

Laly started making art about 8 years ago and what really got her started was discovering mixed media art. She felt like all of a sudden she was given permission to not love just one thing, but as many as she liked! For Laly it was freeing to realize that she didn't have to commit to just one art practice, nor had to learn "traditional" art, but that she could instead explore and experiment with anything that attracted her, anything that felt good and exciting, and follow the light of her own inner artist!

Laly gathers elements from nature all the time: twigs, pebbles, feathers, seeds... she spots them on her walks and then display them around the studio with all their beautiful textures and colors. They remind Laly of her precious connection to the natural world and constantly inspire her paintings. Then the next step is to actually incorporate these treasures INTO her art.

a few fun things you should know about laly Mille:

  1. December is one of Laly’s favorite times of the year! She loves the feeling of wonder, when you know that something really special is on its way. And she loves it when that « Christmas feel » shows up at other times of the year!

  2. Laly is not a dog person, but she has 1, 2, 3, 4… 5 kitties! laly says that a cat purring on your lap is just one of the most relaxing things ever… but a cat set loose in the studio is not!

  3. Laly is a good mix between messy and control freak: sometimes you’d think a hurricane has blown through her studio, yet upon closer inspection you’d realize that papers are sorted into categories and supplies are organized by medium, then by color within each medium… it’s « supposed » to help her tidy up the mess…

  4. The movie that never fails to cheer her up is… Legally Blond with Reese Witherspoon! Just the opening song is enough to give her a boost.

  5. Her family is a family of book-lovers and Laly and her husband still read bedtime stories to their children every night. They are 9 and 12 and the stories just get more and more interesting!

Your Turn: Use nature to inspire you

Take a walk in the nearest quiet park or wooded area and search for what fills you with wonder and joy. These little things are the sparks to light your soul.

Now it’s time to create texture and translucency, contrast, light and shadow, white on white effects and layers of color... Explore it all, from your surroundings to the canvas and above all from what lives in your souls.

Be Patient With Yourself, Painting with Roben-Marie

INTRODUCING ROBEN-MARIE OF @ROBENMARIE

An artist, instructor and woman of faith from Florida, Roben-Marie’s mission is to serve others and help them get the most out of their art as a hobby, or as a business. Roben-Marie’s own desire to learn and unquenchable curiosity keeps her fingers messy and heart happy.

Don’t wait until you think you know enough or have enough supplies. Be open to learning and experimenting and be patient with yourself.

TAKE A LOOK AT ROBEN-MARIE’S PROCESS:

Roben-Marie says she tends to be a slow creator. It is kind of hard to explain, but the more she creates, the more obvious it becomes. There is something that she just "sees" once it is finished. Sometimes it’s essential for Roben_marie to set things aside and come back to them at a later time when she can revisit the work with fresh eyes. At that point it is usually more obvious. She also often has more than one project going at once so she can bounce back and forth when the inspiration strikes. ⠀⠀

It sounds cliche but truly inspiration is everywhere. Roben-Marie’s favorite sources are magazines, catalogs and a spirit of curiosity. She stays focused and motivated by her love of experimentation. She is always open to adding new mediums, products and techniques to her work, while at the same time Roben-Marie also loves to find a unique spin on the tried and true.

A FEW FUN THINGS YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT ROBEN-MARIE:

  1. Roben-Marie would go short of crazy without lip balm. They are located in all rooms of her house and she sleeps with one under her pillow.

  2. Ever since Roben-marie was 15 she has wanted to learn American Sign Language. She knows the alphabet and a couple dozen words, but it is still on her bucket list.

  3. Roben-Marie is is an avid reader and especially fond of psychological and military thrillers. She loves learning the meaning of new words when reading British authors.

  4. Her friends call her the app queen, because Roben-Marie loves testing out new software and apps. She knows it is a bit geeky, but it completely fits her “tech-savvy” artist persona.

  5. Roben-Marie says she needs good lighting, a ceiling fan, a Hallmark Movie, coconut water and a bowl of Pirate’s Booty to make her studio complete!

YOUR TURN: PICK A FOCUS

One of the drawbacks (if there are any, really) of being a mixed media artist is that you want to play with all of the techniques and all of the supplies - but that is not a time or cost effective way to create, particularly if you want to transform your creative practice from hobby to business.

Roben Marie suggests that at the start of each month, pick a focus. This could be a theme, or a particular technique or even a specific color palette. Use that focus to select the ideas you’re going to try first and then see where you can go from there!

A few favorite supplies:

UHU Glue - best to make the collage stick!

Caran d’Ache Neocolor II - watersoluble pastel

Prismacolor Nu Pastels

Velum Pack of Paper - 100 pages

Newsprint Paper to make your own collage pages

Paint What You Love, Painting with Regina Lord

Paint What You Love with Regina Lord for Color Crush Creative and Kellee Wynne Studios .jpg

INTRODUCING REGINA LORD OF @REGINA_CREATIVEKISMET

Regina currently lives in southern AZ with the love of her life and her two beautiful boys. She is strongly influenced by the warm weather, bright sun and the Mexican colors, style and architecture that are predominant in the city where she lives. 

Creative Kismet Art came about because of Regina’s desire to share her art, ideas and a little bit of sunshine to as many people as possible.

Paint what you know and love. When you do, a part of you becomes a part of the painting. This gives it life! People will see it and feel it when they look at your art.
Paint What You Love with Regina Lord for Color Crush Creative and Kellee Wynne Studios 26.jpg

TAKE A LOOK AT REGINA’S ART PROCESS

Regina believes that a creative life can change your outlook to become more positive…more open. Her creative process starts first by looking for inspiration then eventually, her heart and soul begins to see it everywhere without even trying. On a walk, going to the store, dropping off the kids at school–it is everywhere she looks. It is in the Southwestern mountains, the desert, in nature, in the streets, and in the people too.

When quiet, Regina recalls these beautiful fragments caught like photos in her mind. Her style is the unraveling of a woven mixture of her Hispanic heritage, her deep rooted love for folk art and her enchantment with magical whimsicality. The actual art making begins with putting ideas down on paper, making doodles and sketches, finally pulling out her paints, papers and any other medium that calls to her at the moment. With her paintbrush and the boldest colors, Regina puts together ideas in ways that makes her heart sing. Always bright, always colorful, always pure of heart.

A FEW FUN THINGS YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT REGINA

1. Having been interested in art since she was very young, Regina wanted to be a painting ballerina when she was little.

2. Every morning she goes for a walk with her dog Freya, in her own neighborhood.  It's the same scenery, but she sees something different every time. 

3. Regina’s favorite subjects to paint are birds, flowers, desert landscape, the moon and women.  She paints them in her style by using bright colors and a good measure of joy and whimsy.

4. Sometimes Regina can tell you what audio book she was listening to at the time a piece of art was painted - It's like part of the story is in her painting. 

5. She can't live without sunshine.

YOUR TURN: use your life as inspiration

Deciding what to paint can sometimes stop an artist from creating. But Regina has a simple solution - paint what you love. Make a list of all the things that excite you. This is no coincidence, this is part of you and a perfect place to begin. Take a walk and open your eyes to all that surrounds you. There is beauty if you look. Sometimes the best thing to create is the thing right in front of you, that which you are most familiar with.
