  • In my recent blog post, I share photos of the watercolor card I placed on an anniversary gift to my husband, a celebratory art project that you can use as inspiration and a lovely moment of synchronicity related to our mutual anniversary gifts.

    • Gorgeous work, Leyla! So happy you joined us!! 😍

      • Really great idea, Charlie. I cannot figure out how to create albums for my photos. Do you have a link to info explaining that?

        • Thanks, Leyla! My hope is to have a getting started page, but I haven’t quite had time to make it yet. 😊 From your Artwork tab on your profile, you can click that and then “Albums” and then “Create Album” should appear to make new ones. You can add a photo to the album there (I’ve disabled the batch upload as it groups everything into one post…[Read more]

    • This is lovely, as a newb! I love to hear how and why people create their art pieces. I have bits of practice stuff all over my ‘studio’ . I be seen artists on YouTube making paintings from old either practice doodles or technique trials. It gives me hope as well as inspiration. Also saves wasting expensive materials. Please do some more!

      • Thank you Susan! I’ll be posting more of my pieces and links to my blog posts and videos as well, where I share about my painting process. I invite you to visit at LeylaTorres.com

    • Leyla, your painting makes lovely pattern on cloth, plates etc! Great work on repurposing it!
