2018 Accomplishments ~ Reflection

Thank you for visiting my blog which is documentary of my Art Life Adventures!

 Reflecting my accomplishments for 2018, my vision of introducing watercolours to those who had never picked up a brush, puts a wide smile on my face!
Funny, how life reminds me of a book which holds chapters (years) and each page is one day of my life.
So blessed in so many ways: my health, family, and friends!
  So much to tell on this blog... maybe I should start writing my own novel. Because I was inspired by my students that I met during my cruises I began teaching watercolour workshops on-line through Udemy. I cannot believe that as of January 15th, 2019, I have students from 95 countries.
Here is the Udemy Link

Here is a few snapshots of the past year....

May 2018: Owen Sound Banner Project
My banner "African Drummer" was accepted to be hung for a year around the Owen Sound Harbour. My model and inspiration came from my Grand-daughter Mackenzie for the Painting (in picture with me)

Introducing 2018 "Music Series" paintings

Every year I challenge myself as an artist with a 'new' theme. "MUSIC"


Because I have started to learn how to play the piano, I decided to be inspired by musical instruments, especially musicians 'hands'!

My Creative Journey
I started my blog "Bev Morgan Art Adventures", in 2011 and when I reflect back 7 years, I can honestly say that my art has taken me to places never imagined and met new friends along the way.
When starting an art career, I would recommend connecting with established artists. Back in November 2006, I stepped out my comfort zone and joined a group of 6 artists creating a local artist group "Saugeen Artists". We exhibited and sold our art together as a group. This provided me with a support network and resources available in a new community.
I have travelled with other artists to learn and grow as a plein-air painter to Italy, France and Portugal.
Initially, I taught watercolours to friends, and as the years past, the classes from my Hanover studio expanded to art conventions, Southampton Art School, campgrounds, and cruise ships. My cruise ships adventures have led me to travels to England, Germany, USA, Costa Rica, Eastern Caribbean and Columbia. Eight of my workshops are now on-line and currently have students from 17 countries enrolled. CLICK HERE TO VISIT COURSES ON-LINE
I have tried a variety of art mediums, through the years, but my art journey always returned back to watercolours and hopes that anyone who views my paintings can experience the excitement and vision that I had creating them. As an artist, teacher and mentor, I will continue to grow, explore, experiment and learn through my own experiences and from my students. When I started this journey, I would not have fathom the direction that my life has taken, just through my ART!

Queen Mary 2 Watercolour Workshops a Success!





So happy to return from my second excursion teaching watercolours to passengers on the Queen Mary 2! The cruise ship left the Brooklyn Cruise terminal November 26th for an Eastern Caribbean voyage and returned December 8th.
The watercolour classes began with colour theory and  information about paints, paper and brushes. Many techniques were introduced each day and the passengers finished some wonderful bookmarks, poppies, negative painting, pelican and northern lights.

The highlight of this cruise was an Art Exhibition of all the great watercolours at the end of the cruise. For beginner artists, I was so pleased with everyone's art work!
Here are some pictures of our Art Exhibition on the Queen Mary 2:
