Funky Fall Candles

I am still experimenting with candles:


I combined several art mediums for this piece.  I experimented with Tombow markers, Pan Pastels, collage and color pencils.  I used my own Gelli-printed papers for collage and also added a scrapbook page on acetate with a FALL theme.

These almost look like birthday candles.  You know the ones that you try to blow out but they just keep relighting.  My husband’s birthday is this month and he is entering the age where he can start getting the Senior discount.  Feels a little like those trick candles.  Age has a way of doing that to a person. lol!

Enjoy your day!  😊

Green Apples

My 3 candle experiment today – playing with patterns and color:


The colors remind me of GREEN or Granny Smith APPLES!

Delicious in an apple pie with a hint of cinnamon and a scoop of  Vanilla Bean ice cream!  Yum!

Have a HAPPY day!  😊🍏😊

3 Candles

Sometimes it is fun to take one subject and create it in different art mediums.

I drew 3 candles – as blind contours that is without looking at my paper.

The first drawing I did in my sketchbook and colored them with Neocolors:


The second one, I drew on 140 lb cold press watercolor paper:


I think I like the second one in watercolor best.

I hope to experiment in other mediums this weekend.
