Random Pick Drawing

One of the assignments I am enjoying from Carla Sonheim’s “365” online art class this year is Random Pick Drawings.

Carla chooses two words out of a hat and we are to create a drawing, using our own imagination.  Recently, she chose the words, fox + bucket so I created this picture:

“Mary Fox was excited to cross one of her dreams off her bucket list!”

I’d like to go on a hot air balloon ride some day too! 🙂

What’s one item on your bucket (wish) list?!  I hope you share your dream with me!

Cheers! 🙂

New Landscapes

Sometimes I enjoy just doodling in my art journal.  Today I started with color pencils and watched as my patterns and colors filled my page.  Below is one of my favorite quotes:

I used to think this quote meant OPENING my eyes where I am now – my world.  Yet, I’m starting to understand that part of the discovery is EXPLORING new things…perhaps with new eyes but more importantly with an OPEN mind.

I decided to fulfill one of  the items on my bucket list this year and attend an art retreat in Oaxaca, Mexico!   I am so excited (a bit nervous too) and yet I am looking forward to new discoveries!  Oh, the colors and patterns I will see and the creative friends I will make!  🙂

Starting this Thursday, Feb 25, I will be taking an almost two week blogging break but I hope to post some photos on Instagram as Art Jill Kuhn.  I have been blogging almost every day for over a year so a little break will be nice – but I will miss all of you, my friends!

Happy Exploring!  🙂

Tulips In Winter?!

As winter approaches, I suddenly have Spring on my mind:

Above are rows of tulips from my imagination.

I would love to see the Spring tulips in Skagit Valley, Washington!

It is on my Bucket List!  😊

What is on your wish list to do before you die?!

I’d love to hear from you!
