Inspiration Avenue Weekly Challenge
I've been wanting to take Suzi Blu's Goddess and the Poet 
online class for so long, and I finally signed up! 
I'm jumping ahead with this painting ~ I'm not actually this far, 
but with Robin's theme for the week, "Wish", 
I thought Suzi's dreamy, sleepy-eyed girls would be perfect. 

I signed up late and so I feel like I am both 
jumping ahead and also lagging behind! Ugh.  
I was tired of drawing disembodied eyes and noses and balls lol, 
and all just in graphite! I needed some color! 
Seriously, the class is so much fun, I am learning tons of neat tricks. 
I can't wait to get back to it... 
I'd recommend it to anyone who loves mixed media.

Oh, I almost forgot the shameless self-promotion:
the heart embellishments are from my collage sheet "Parisian Hearts". 

There are sure to be so many wonderful "Wish" entries 
over at Inspiration Avenue. Go check them out
Sunday afternoon when they will all be on display!

Thanks for looking!


  1. Hi Maggie :)

    This is really beautiful...I love all the colors!

    Hope you are having a wonderful weekend!


  2. Maggie! I love it! your hearts are the perfect touch for the piece. I am in the midst of my first e-course and know all the flurry that it involves-nice work.

  3. gosh girl! i'm loving your artwork!! and i do love how you still retain a little "collage" you in there :) so glad you're having fun with the classes :)

  4. This is so pretty Maggie, I'm loving your mixed media side! And your class sounds very inspiring, where are you all finding all these intriguing e-courses?! x

  5. Thank you all! I'm having fun!

    Angie, this is my first e-course. I'm sure I'll take more ~ I'm addicted!

    Here is a link to Suzi Blu's classes:
    She's very entertaining as well as a great teacher!

  6. She is awesome! Now I want to take Suzi's class. I love her eyes.You are so very talented.

  7. So happy to find you along the trail of blog hopping this morning! Your first girl is STUNNING!!! Yes, Suzi is a great mentoring instructor, and so much fun too. But YOU have talent beyond measure! Wish my first (or last!) goddess looked this beautiful, ;). Looking forward to staying in touch, Magpie, and watching you grow. Happy Creating!

  8. Gorgeous, gorgeous, GORGEOUS!!! I always adore your montages and can' wait to see what you come up with next!

  9. Oh Maggie ... she's just wonderful! I love her dreamy look ... wonder what she's wishing for?

  10. Maggie - your goddess is perfect and look at that hand... (feel the jealousy, I keep shying away from hands...). I loved the course and was delighted when suddenly I could draw a passable nose. In fact, I have become totally addicted to painting faces. I just can't get enough. I never thought I was a portrait person either. Funny how just by taking this course my whole outlook changed. You're going to be fab at this !

  11. You are doing Suzi proud...although, I thought your art was just so Magg-a-licous before. I am glad to see you put your own self in this's wonderful!

  12. Hi Maggie, I don't know how I came across your site surfing art blogs, but I am glad I did. Your goddess / Wish turned out lovely! I can't wait to look around more, so off I go.
    Glad to meet you, Theresa


I always love to hear what you have to say! Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment!
