Power Surges

As I started to write this post, we had a power surge and the paper shredder (that hasn’t been used in months!) decided to turn on loudly!  The only way to stop the noise was to unplug it!  Pretty weird!  😉

It reminds me of creating art.  Sometimes I have my own “power surges!”  Lol!  When I don’t think I have enough time to create art, I somehow find the TIME!  And I start creating MORE art!

Today’s art is inspired by my annual flowers (before Jack Frost!) and my Crapapple tree as it begins to change to it’s autumn dress:

I drew a pattern in my sketchbook first with Micron .08 black pen and then painted it with gouache paint.

Do you think it’s done?  I’m not sure…  I think it may need another layer of color.

Happy Creating!!  🙂

  1. Ooh I love it just the way it is. Funny paper shredder. I’m surprised it didn’t rampage around the house.

  2. The paper shredder would have scared the heck out of me, at least for a moment :). I like your painting very much! I wonder how it would look if you did another layer on only certain leaves or maybe with just one of the colors. Could make some cool contrast. Happy weekend!!! 🍁🍂

  3. I like Carol’s idea and yet I really like the clean and colorful approach, I say leave it but I still like Carol’s idea, so I am undecided! Have a wonderful weekend!

  5. Such a lovely fresh drawing, it really gives the feel of your garden. If I may add an opinion, I think some more line work, perhaps a few tendril or unpainted leaves just to mix it up, but really it is great as it is. Karen

  6. Hmm….extra layer or not? I too am undecided as I like both the pen line version and the colored version.
