A Brayer for New Mexico

While on a lovely vacation in Santa Fe, New Mexico, my husband and I drove by an old barn that had such a beautiful energy. Then I noticed the donkey! The scene captivated my imagination in such a way that I had to capture it immediately.

My husband had recently purchased for me an Apple Pencil (against my wishes)  for my iPad.  I packed it in my purse, thinking that if I got bored I would give it a try.  While sitting in the passenger seat, en route to Santa Fe, I opened up the Procreate app to use with the Apple Pencil.   This is what I managed to create. I was thrilled with the result -- and sold on the Apple Pencil and Procreate App for ipad.  A Brayer for New Mexico is the result!

Inspiration behind the Church Cat

I am a very spontaneous and splashy artist, and the Arteza pens react immediately, almost like confetti!  What I mean by this is, “whatever happens, happens” and I am satisfied with the result. I assume the universe is giving me divine direction. This exercise is extremely gratifying (and necessary) for a watercolor artist.
