Lazy Susan

Susan always served the best appetizers for her feather friends…

She would sit down with a plate on her belly and slowly spin the plate around so everyone could sample the seeds…

This is why she was nicknamed, Lazy Susan.

One never knows what will inspire a silly weird bird!

I drew this pattern with Copic markers yesterday evening:

Earlier in the day, I painted these papers:

It was to create this project:

I hope you let your imagination soar!

Happy Weird Bird Wednesday!

Cheers! 🙂

P.S. I’m posting a little late today… feeling kind of lazy I guess! 😉

A Thingamabob…

I haven’t forgotten today’s weird bird

It is A Thingamabob and A Thingamajig!

Now where did I put my car keys…

Happy Weird Bird Wednesday!

May it be a memorable day for you!

Cheers! 🙂

This Spud’s for you!

I haven’t posted in a little while on my blog…

I hope you are all well!

It has been raining A LOT where I live in the Pacific Northwest which makes me feel like a couch potato

It was my inspiration for today’s weird bird:

May it give you a smile and bring you a little sunshine on a cloudy day!

Happy Weird Bird Wednesday!

Cheers! 🙂

An Amazing Day

I have been enjoying the free online art class:

“The Layered Page” with Kellee Wynne Studios! I discovered it on Instagram. You can find it at KelleeWynneStudios.com

I have been creating larger pages with acrylic paint and stencils that will become mini books. Kellee shows you how to do this in her videos.

This led to experimenting in my sketchbook with marks and bubble wrap:

And creating smaller cards that are 5.5 x 3.5 inches:

I decided to make positive affirmation cards with some of the smaller cards:

And I created my own layered pages with paper collage in my art journal:

Perhaps my art will inspire you to create art you enjoy!

I hope you have an amazing day!

Cheers! 🙂

P.S. I have decided to take a blogging break so I can focus on creating art. There are some awesome free online art classes right now that I want to take advantage of!

If you are needing some additional creative inspiration, Carla Sonheim is offering a free pdf with 22 artists sharing their ideas. You can find it at CarlaSonheim.com Great ideas for all ages!

Have fun and stay safe! 🙂

Weird Weather

Spring brings such weird weather and today was no exception!

I woke-up to two inches of new SNOW!! What a surprise!

These weird birds were surprised too… One bird in particular!

What do you think the other birds are saying?

Happy Weird Bird Wednesday!

Cheers! 🙂

A Carnival Ride

My mark making has the feel of being on a carnival ride…

I started this doodle over a month ago and just finished it Saturday:

I used Micron pens and a new set of Uni-ball fineliner drawing pens.

Perhaps it influenced this one in my sketchbook with Copic Markers and Micron pens:

And the bright colors of watercolor, Neocolor crayons and Copic Markers in this one, definitely make me feel like having some cotton candy! Lol!

Sometimes life can feel a little like a carnival ride with its unexpected twists and turns.

I find creating marks and patterns quiets my mind and helps me tune out life’s stressful times.

Peace be with you! 🙂

Cheers!

Springing Forward

Sunday, we set our clocks forward for Daylight Saving Time, giving us an extra hour of light in the evenings. Yay!

According to the Washington Post; 70 countries change their clocks mid year for Daylight Saving Time including most of North America, Europe and parts of South America and New Zealand. China, Japan, India and most countries near the equator don’t fall back or jump ahead.

Today’s weird bird is Springing forward with a bouquet of blooms to give you a smile!

Happy Weird Bird Wednesday!

Cheers! 🙂

Learning To Fly…

Learning to fly..

Is never easy!

A silly little drawing to give you a smile today!

Happy Weird Bird Wednesday!

Cheers! 🙂

Slow And Steady

Hi Friends,

I am feeling a little stronger each day. My total hip replacement surgery was two weeks ago.

I am using a walker to walk around my home and hope to graduate to a cane soon. Tomorrow I see my surgeon to get my bandage off. YAY!

I created this weird bird to give you a smile today:

It is very colorful and wild which tells me I’m getting back to my old self which makes me happy.

One day at a time is my motto these days. I hope to catch up with your blogs soon. I have missed you, friends!

Happy Weird Bird Wednesday!

Cheers!

Ernie Was All Ears…

I hope you have earmarked my post today from Monday…

I completed my journal page and story yesterday:

Earnie was all ears whenever someone said, “Chocolate!” His large elf-like ears elevated his hearing to an extraordinary level of expertise. Everyone attributed Ernie’s extra large feet (size 11) to his enormous nose. Ernie was Eve’s son and she was extremely proud of Ernie’s ability to play the piano by ear, while riding a unicycle. A remarkable talent “earmarked” by many of Eve’s peers at an early age… as an exceptional child. Eve on the other hand was more reserved and preferred to express herself with wearing expensive and elegant clothes and shoes… And unusual hats!

I hope you enjoyed my silly story… I earmarked it to give you a smile!

Cheers! 🙂
