Sara Jo Rosenberg Artwork - webpage

That would be my facebook page for my artwork. I mostly do Pastel drawings and spend my evenings in the winter doing felt/sequin/beaded crafts or crocheting when watching TV.
I've been trying pretty hard this past year to break into the art scene here in Texas but I don't think I fit in with the desired styles here (Modern).
I honestly feel like I should be illustrating a children's book but wouldn't even know how to get jobs without already having done a book. Catch 22

Wanted to share a bit of my art! 
BUT FIRST: Some artists need help posting images of their work.   If that is you, read on.  If not, just skip this part and enjoy my sketch!

I had a devil of a time trying to figure out how to post images here.  Finally found information in the Forum: Tinkering With This Site and the Thread How to Post Pictures on Permies.  Thanks Jennifer Wadsworth for getting me on the right path!
I'm posting here what worked for me - borrowing from Jennifer's instructions. 

1. Began by writing a post using the "Post Reply" button.  "Quick Reply" did not have the options I needed.
2. Selected an image From the Internet.  (From my blog Homesteading Artist)
3. Right Click on the image I wanted to use.  Clicked on "Copy image address"
4. Placed my cursor where I wanted the image to go in the post.
5. Clicked on the Img button at the top of the Reply screen. 
6. Scrolled over the Img box and Right click to Paste image address into box.  Select OK
7. Only my image address appeared in the post I was writing.  To actually SEE the image, I selected the PREVIEW option at the bottom of the Reply screen.

Again, that is what worked for me.  Results may vary.  Please do check out the Thread on this!  Its 4 years old, but still useful!  And forgive for this section that had NOTHING to do with sharing your art.  But if you do not know, you can't share.  And I would love to see more art from the Permies community!

SHARING MY ART
Dreaming of the summer garden!  This is a page from my gardening journal.  Hoping to enjoy Burgundy Okra this year!

The sheer talent of the people on this site is absolutely incredible. I sit in awe looking at almost everyone's creation; to point one piece of artwork out would not be fair, nor accurate.
Unbelievable...

I've recently started making pigments and watercolors from the stones and plants that grow right around the house. These two kestrels were done using only colors made with locally sourced materials. Except for the black. For the first one, I used prismacolor black pencil, but the second one is a watercolor paint I made from the gray paint by adding charcoal to it. The yellow from elderberry leaves, russet from sandstone, and the gray is from black-eyed susan flowers and leaves. When I get back home from a trip I'm on right now, I'm going to do more. I'd only just started it the week before I left, but I'll be home next week and can't wait to get started. My blog is wildozarkblog. The post about my trip here to Doha, Qatar is where this pic is posted, if you want to read about that. webpage

Since retiring I have been able to devote somewhat full time to my art - of course there is still 'growies' and cycling - so I'm not sure what full time means. 

But I love that there is an art forum here at permies and I am in awe of the posts here - some truly beautiful work.

So here is one of my favorites.  The Age of Innocence was inspired by two children playing at a local farmers market.  In this world of data, plastics, ipods games and tablets......these two children were completely fascinated with the rocks and dirt and leaves.  They were totally unaware that a large group had formed around them and were taking pictures of them.

This is my latest kestrel. All of the color came from my own paints that I make from local stones and clay. If you’re interested in the paint, I have them listed at my website (www.wildozark.com). They’re called “Paleo Paints” 😁 The painting is sold.

I am very interested in your paints.  When I was in Cuba recently a children's art program was teaching a technique of painting that used clay, coffee, and dirt.  The paintings were beautiful. 

I like the idea of using the found, recycled, and less toxic resources around me to create art.  I currently have a studio full of oil paints and acrylics but eventually I would like to transition completely to all natural and recycled products.

Jeanine, right now I only make watercolor but by the end of the year I’ll have the pigments themselves to offer. You can make any kind of paint then. If you’d like to make them yourself I have a how-to at my blog, that starts with the rocks. I’m on my phone so can’t easily get the link to share it but I’ll try to come back later. I’m absolutely in love with these paints and the process of making them.

Alright! Back to a computer and not tiny cell phone screen :) Here's a link to the how-to that will give you an idea of the steps involved in turning a rock into paint: https://www.wildozark.com/handmade-watercolor-paint/. Once you have your pigment, you can make any kind of paint you want. To make oils, you'd use your oil base on the mulling board and muller. You'd need some of the tiny containers or some tubes for storing it, so in that way it's a little less convenient than watercolors, which can be allowed to dry out in any container at all, with or without a lid.

The current paint experiments I'm doing include a nice tan made from the red autumn leaves of black gum, and I just finished putting to pan some shades I separated out from a pigment rich pink sandstone. I don't have anything about those posted at the blog yet, but as soon as I get caught up with some other projects, I'm going to focus on the paints, paint-making, and painting. I'm out until late November with prior commitments, so it'll be end of year before I really kick into production with it.

There's a good-sized community of pigment hunters and handmade watercolor makers on Instagram, but I'd love to have a topic here for it. Will have to see how to do that and see if anyone else is interested in sharing and learning secrets of the stones together.

Madison, the 'Dyeing' forum has some bits and pieces  https://permies.com/f/242/dyeing ; Maybe you could start a topic there?

I would love to learn more, esp. for use in inks and block printing.

Judy, and anyone else interested, I started a topic in the art forum on making/using local pigments for paint:

https://permies.com/t/93469/art/earth-pigments-handmade-paint

I hope we have some interest in this!
