Hello Mask by KmyGraphic

:iconcuteflowerplz:I was born in California, and now live in New Zealand, and enjoy beautiful scenery and lovely changeable weather! I enjoy music, art, photography, cooking, astronomy, exploring new lands/places, taking walks along the beach at sunset, and almost anything else! I'm married with a son, and I have great compassion for all living things!

Let me tell you what is my saving grace, and my happy place...when I want to daydream and where I want to art!

I'm a self taught artist and my long arduous journey, started off with crayons and a colouring book at a very young age. I just loved all the different colours and what I could make black and white outlined "things" look like all coloured in. I then started drawing... drawing was really and will always be my first love of art, and the first things I remember sketching were challenging enough for a five year old, but I tried and tried, and with determination and perseverance I got it to look half decent! When I got bored with sketching, because it had no colour, I moved on to Acrylics and then I also tried water-colour and oils...but since 2010, when I happened to be at home recovering from a work injury and had a set of pastel pencils and coloured pencils...I was forever hooked...and I learned/still learning new wonderful techniques and tips to lead me through my journey into my future of a sense, upping my game!!

SO...DON'T EVER GIVE UP, its true what they say "If at first you don't succeed, try try again! My art journey has been a labor of love, because it hasn't been easy, quite difficult most of the time because I love detailed work...challenging at best, but it has taught me a few things about myself...who I am, what my strengths are, and how much determination I really have!

PLEASE keep in mind when you are viewing other people's works of art, remind yourself that you too were once a beginner, and had humble beginnings! Art is ever evolving, and so very personal to the please pay it forward, and aspire to inspire others and please be kind when commenting!

Some Exciting News, It's Official...

Journal Entry: Wed Nov 26, 2014, 1:54 PM
Aww, I did tell you I would share the most exciting news with you all, as soon as it was official...

Well It's Official!! :party: :dance: :w00t:

Okay well, just backtracking a little bit...

I got an email from the Editor in Chief, of the "Colored Pencil Magazine" recently, to say that they loved my painting of "Martini At The Waldorf" so much (name change for the magazine)...and that if I was interested, they would like to feature it in an upcoming issue of this world wide magazine (digital as well) :D, and of course I was THRILLED beyond imagination.  Well today I got an email confirming the feature and a free digital magazine of the DECEMBER print I ordered two copies of the 'soft cover' magazine :)

Colored Pencil Observation Study ~ Complete by ArtBYbeverlyTwby Seemein1214 by ArtBYbeverly 

To top that off...

A little while ago, I was contacted by "The New Zealand Artist Magazine" that they would like to feature me and (7) of my paintings in one of their upcoming features in 2015!! :omg: :faint: I of course was THRILLED and so humbled by this!! I've sent in all the paperwork, and releases and images so it looks like a go-ahead for sometime next year! 

Studio by ArtBYbeverly

I know that most artists, it doesn't matter what genre of art you do, can relate to the feeling of euphoria that occurs when you're a self taught artist and you go through the struggles, frustrations, threats of giving up, studying, learning, watching and practising all the time hoping that one day big things will start happening for you, and then it suddenly does!  I cannot describe how I feel other than to say that it really goes to show YOU that through patience, perseverance and WILL happen! :heart:

I want to take this time, to THANK each and everyone of you, my friends and watchers that have helped me get through the tough times, offered help and support, and have always been there for me!  Thank you too, for your beautiful comments, faves, features, donations (anonymously as well) :hug:, watches and Llama's I sincerely appreciate them all!! :heart:


By Dr. Seuss -

I love My Job!

“I love my job. I love the pay!
~I love it more and more each day.
~I love my boss, he is the best!
~I love his boss and all the rest.

~I love my office and its location. I hate to have to go on vacation.
~I love my furniture, drab and grey, and piles of paper that grow each day!
~I think my job is swell, there's nothing else I love so well.
~I love to work among my peers, I love their leers, and jeers, and sneers.
~I love my computer and its software; I hug it often though it won't care.
~I love each program and every file, I'd love them more if they worked a while. 

~I'm happy to be here. I am. I am.
~I'm the happiest slave of the Firm, I am.
~I love this work. I love these chores.
~I love the meetings with deadly bores.
~I love my job - I'll say it again - I even love those friendly men.
~Those friendly men who've come today, in clean white coats to take me away!!!!!”
