I sold my first clutch purse over the weekend ~ just a few days after I listed it on etsy! While I plan to make a replacement for the one I sold ~ I am also thinking I may create a series of one-of-a-kind clutches from this hand painted linen I made last year.

All Her Glory hand painted Belgian linen

It only takes a 12" wide piece to make the bag. So the detail below shows how the design might look on one bag, with part wrapping around the sides and bottom.

All Her Glory, Hand painted Belgian Linen

I think I have enough fabric to make four to six bags. Each will be different, as you can see the fabric does not have a repeat. The metal frame in the center of the photo is the clasp I will use to finish it off. A flat brass chain attaches to it, so it can go on the shoulder or tuck inside.

Dorothy Fagan

The colors are within you!

We think that artists have to be inspired by the world out there. Actually, successful artists know the secret is that the colors are INSIDE them!

So how to know which ones they are? Sennielier watercolors set of 48
modified by removing black, white, and other dark muddy colors So the challenge this week is to get outside and breathe! Breathe in some fresh air. Step away from what you’re doing, even for 5 minutes.

Feel how you feel.

I realize that may sound ridiculous. Just stop one minute and feel. Feel how it feels to be in your skin, just this one minute. However it feels to be you, even if you feel annoyed by my conversation, just hang out there a few.

Now.

What color pops to mind?

Get it and splash it all over your paper.

That’s what I did on the beach.

I’d been working on programming all week for this website. I was exhausted. My brain so frazzled, I couldn’t think straight. I could barely stay awake to think about dinner.

I went for a walk to stretch, though there wasn’t much left of me to stretch!

On the way out the door, I grabbed my palette of watercolors and a couple sheets of handmade paper.

handmade watercolor paper with 4 deckle edges, 9″ x 12″

I had a sketchbook of watercolor from Spain some years ago ~ handmade sheets with deckle edges. Everything I painted on it looked fabulous!!!

I searched and searched and finally found loose sheets, 9″ x 12″ with 4 deckle edges. They are heavy weight, approx 250 lb+/-. So I don’t need to stretch them, or carry a watercolor block.

I grabbed two and the paintbox and ran out the door.

I headed for Bethel Beach Sanctuary, a long stretch of beach on the Chesapeake Bay 20 minutes from home. Still too tired to walk all the way down the beach, as I’d hoped I would ~ I settled instead in a sheltered spot atop the dunes.

It was windy and I wanted to get out of the chill. Down low, the sun felt warm and I settled in.

The smell of salt in the air made me feel like a girl again. Some of the aches dissipated.

There wasn’t really much color. I felt disappointed that the marsh was still wintery gray. And the sky, so pale with wisps of white ~ not much to write home about.

But I knew once I picked up the brush I would feel better.

Bethel Beach Sanctuary April Dorothy Fagan - YouTube

It didn’t matter WHICH color I picked. The FIRST color in the flow was a pale wishy yellow.

I let it wishy washy lightly across the sky. SqueeZed out the brush and picked up the excess water.

The second brush load of color was equally unmemorable. Slightly more pink, I did the same with it.

I was still annoyed at not having the strength to work on the big painting at home. A 3 by 4 foot canvas called ‘Enchanted.’ I was nearly finished, but. I didn’t FEEL enchanted and couldn’t risk letting the painting absorb MY lackluster colors.

I swatted at a few gnats and tried to make the blue bluer. Several times painting over, letting the blues bleed together, I thanked myself for bringing the handmade paper. Its deep textures held the brush strokes and kept them from totally running together.

Sparkles of white paper hung in between the colors, thank you!

Colors along the distant treeline were equally boring. And I was too lazy to stand up and look around for another subject.

I mixed up some deep cool greens with purples. Some radiant purple, and a bit of deep cool purple. Just enough to take the edge off the green and mute it back into the atmosphere. With this, I began stroking in along a low horizon. I could barely see it actually, but I knew it was there.

My horizon felt low too. I felt so discouraged, you heard me I know.

No matter what I paint, it seems the Creator attracts my eye to that which mirrors me. At that moment in time, the mirror in place, grand sky over low horizon.

Shall we call it High Hopes? Perhaps I would call it Prayer for Peace.

High Hopes, Prayer for Peace

I don’t know if you can see them in this photograph? I added a couple birds. May have to drop them back in with a pencil.

Join me in the salon and post your challenge paintings. Ask questions. Make suggestions. See what everyone else is painting. Enter your painting in Oh My, Colors!

Ruby Slipper Fabric DIY or Ready to Wear!

I am so thrilled to see what one talented woman created with my Ruby Slipper Dance Collection Fabric from Spoonflower!

Ruby Slipper Vest by Elyse Marinos

Elyse Marinos is a quilter and fiber artist from Sacramento, California who creates stunning wearable art. In her design she choose Organic Cotton Sateen and pieced the vest together like a quilt.

I am enamored by the black and white checks paired with the red! So stunning!!!

And I love the way she has created the zig zag effect on the inside ~ wow! Not to mention her attention to details, like the boutoneir with the red berries, and that black and white spotted button closure!

Kudos Elyse!

If you are purchasing fabric from my Ruby Slipper Collection, note the difference between the floral only fabric, the one with the ruby slippers, and the one with the wording, 'Plant Joy & Bloom!'

" It is just gorgeous fabric! I fell in love with your work,
you do amazing designs."

~ Elyse Marinos

Ruby Slipper Vest by Elyse Marinos
Upcycled Vest with Luxe Velvet pockets
Ruby Slipper Upcycled Vest with Hand Painted Ruby Slipper Scarf

This no sew project suited me!

I simply made a pattern by tracing the outline of the existing pockets on the vest. I ironed fusible to the back of my Ruby Slipper velvet from Spoonflower. Then cut the pockets out to size, a little larger so leaving room to fine trim once they were laid out on the vest.

Trimmed to match the stitching lines on the vest, I then ironed them in place. I use a pressure steam iron for this. If you have a standard iron, be sure to use a dampened press cloth. Follow package instructions on your fusible.

I chose to add top stitching around the curved side of each pocket. But there is no stitching at the pocket opening. I really don't think the top stitching was necessary ~ I just like the look of it!

Crepe de Chine Ruby Slipper Hand Painted Scarf
Ruby Slipper Crepe de Chine Hand Painted Scarf on etsy

If you're interested in painting your own Ruby Slipper scarf like this one, you'll need two yards of crepe de chine in the Ruby Slipper Dance fabric. Two yards makes three scarves, 70" x 17", so you'll have two for gifts and one for yourself!

I used Jacquard Textile Colors in Gold, Copper, Lumiere Pearl Violet, and Pearlescent Blue applied with pointed tip squeeze bottles and watercolor brushes. These paints can be diluted with water. I like to use them sparingly. Simply heat set them with an iron. Follow package instructions.

Since the crepe de chine is relatively light weight, it helps to secure the scarf or fabric to the table to avoid shifting. Practice your drawing and painting strokes on some scrap fabric first. This will help you feel confident you can make the strokes right the first time!

Allow the paint to set up overnight. Resist the temptation to handle it before it is set completely. If you iron it before it is completely dry, it will remove the paint!

If you would like to purchase one of my READY TO WEAR hand painted Ruby Slipper Scarves hop on over to my etsy shop.

How did you create this fabric??? The Secret behind the Ruby Slipper
Angel of Joy Quilt, 72" x 20"

I created the fabric from pieces of a painting! I had printed segments of a goddess painting on 4 squares of fabric. The original Oil painting is one I painted over with a flowing river!

Sewing the four squares of the design back together, my total piece was 72" x 18". This linen cotton fabric then landed on my painting table in the studio, where I painted back into it with iridescent fiber paints.

At that point I stopped and pressed it flat to photograph it in sections.

detail from original painting for Ruby Slipper Fabric Design

I created the fabric design for Spoonflower from my favorite section on Photoshop. Making sure the repeat of the design matched my vision for the fabric.

The tapestry is finished with free motion quilting and a hand painted border. The backing is heavy felt with several leaves embedded in the design.

You can see more detailed photos of this fiber art piece on my art website.

OMG! She's Out of Her Box!!!

When I started the painting for this fabric, 'the woman' was cramped into the close confines of the canvas, head bent down. I painted over her. And forgot about her ~ until

years later I found four squares of fabric printed with her in my stash. Stitching her back together, I took her in the studio and painted back into her with fabric paints.

I created this fabric from that out-of-the-box painting.

Abundance Blooming With bloom and seed springing simultaneously, impatiens signify spontaneity!

This is me to be sure!!! I am the most impatient person I know.

My husband is patient. I try to learn from him.

And yet … I am inpatient still.

Abundance Blooming

I have always had this ridiculous notion that all-at-once it would happen.

It? Well, I wasn’t sure EXACTLY what IT was. Just that I would surely know if it happened.

And then it did.

Suddenly my studio is filled with paintings!!! Yes, I realize that may sound ridiculous to anyone else. But …

These paintings didn’t struggle. No childbirth pains. No angst. No worries.

These paintings are filled with joy! And it does my heart good to finally see them flowering prolifically!!!

Silver Lining Fagan has painted plein air on the beaches near her home in Mathews County, Virginia for twenty years.

Floating Lilies Create 7 Garden Rooms of Peace & Tranquility

Water Lilies have much to teach us about embracing the murky water in which we often find ourselves! To thrive and bloom profusely, like water lilies, our roots feed us with vital creative energy found only on the muddy pond bottom of life.

Read on ... this is good news!

Purple Passion Diva, center, Glitter Me Happy (left), Reaching for the Light (right)
Water Lilies Paintings

Painting the water lilies, I am dreaming of what I would like my own pond to look like. The pond outside my studio is filled with wild things. My efforts to plant water lilies have been thwarted by snapping turtles, ducks, and beaver. And yet, sometimes a root takes hold and shoots up several pads and blossoms!

They remind me that my own murky bottom is also rich in nutrients for a productive and happy life. My responsibility as a wise woman is to direct that energy toward the Light.

At some point I stopped listening to the voice of the perpetrator.

Fear does not own my daily actions.

Instead I choose to paint Divas in the Light, water lilies paintings for women to create rooms of peace and tranquility ~ where we can connect with nature and recharge mind, body, spirit.

Blooming in the Sun

Water Lilies Paired

Blooming in the Sun and Reaching for the Light are paired in this zen like dining room. To me they feel both uplifting and soothing all at once. I think they would make for smooth and vibrant dinners with dear friends and family.

Glitter Me Happy in pewter float frame

Palette Knife ~ a Fusion of Painting & Drawing

Painting is about color, feeling the emotion of color and becoming one with where it takes me.

Drawing is about line, defining the edges, grasping for something tangible to hold onto as I soar in colorful emotions.

Recovering from trauma, painting and drawing taught me through practice, to let go and hold on simultaneously. This is the peace within.

Accepting that I am human and the Creator resides within me, peace & joy fill the garden.

Glitter Me Happy (left), Wake Me, My Frog Prince! (right)

Grounding Floating Lilies in a Garden Room

The dark furnishings in this dining room call for framing to ground the Floating Lilies Collection into the space.  I've selected a pewter float frame for Glitter Me Happy, and Wake Me, My Frog Prince! The space around the canvas makes the art appear to float. The pewter color ties to the walnut table and sideboard.

Wake Me, My Frog Prince! (shown in pewter float frame)

Energetic carved details capture the exuberance and passion of my joy. Living in the moment, I've practiced choosing to say how I feel without hesitation. My heart speaks directly through my hand.

And on those days when my head gets in the way of my heart, I lay the painting down. I take the time I need to address the issue. And return to the easel when I am free to resume taking dictations of the Creator.

Detail palette knife strokes, Joyful Garden

In this cool toned sitting room, I've paired two of the lavender blue Floating Lilies for the side walls. Scaled smaller than the central focal point over the mantle, they complement without competing.

Wake Me, My Frog Prince! is done in 36" x 30" to fill the height of the mantle with vibrant complimentary colors. Opposite on the color spectrum, complimentary colors pop to draw attention and focus. In this room, coral pinks provide this alternate palette pop.

Rather than becoming too blended into the walls and furnishings, art should step up and out to bring the room and people to life. (Complimentary colors are opposites, complementary colors are analogous, matching, not opposites.)

If you love the art, you will always love the room!

Wake Me, My Frog Prince! (over mantle), Glitter Me Happy (left) & Reaching for the Light (right)
Purple Passion Diva
Purple Passion Diva

Many women who love my paintings are Purple Passion Divas! Purple is the shadow color that brings all other colors to life. We know this intuitively. We simply feel it without words or reasons.

If you look closely in nature, you can begin to see the purples all around you. In the trees you thought were gray or brown ~ there's purple! In the shadows on the sidewalk, yup they're purple. The undersides of the green leaves are lavender. I could go on and on.

Is purple your color?
