An Egg-cellent Day

I started this abstract in my watercolor journal last week with a Micron pen and decided to add watercolor to it:

 

Then a little collage… I cut three circles from a paper napkin.  And added some water soluble crayons on top:

 

And finished with a few doodles with my black pen:

Have Your Cake And…

My MIL turned 85 years old yesterday! 😃  WOWZA!

So I thought I would repost this Diva bird since I’m taking a little break from blogging this week…

Happy Weird Bird Wednesday!

Bird One And Bird Two

I thought I’d change things up a bit for weird bird Wednesday…

And drew a couple of birds, Dr. Seuss style:

Bird 1 and Bird 2…

A Suess hatching at the zoo,

Double fun for you!

I hope your Wednesday is happy times two!

Cheers Friends! 🙂

100 Tropical Hearts

I was experimenting with acrylic paint and India ink yesterday….

And I created this tropical Flamingo by drawing with an ink dropper and then scraping acrylic paint over it:

Isn’t it wild?! 😉

I next experimented with some drips:

Then I cut this paper into strips and 100 tropical hearts:

 

I plan to use them in my art journals… what would you do with them?

Collage Confetti

I took yesterday off from work to have a creative play day!  YAHOO! 🙂

I had so much fun!  I painted 33 different papers with acrylic paints without a Gelli-Plate.

I can’t wait to show you some of my discoveries in next Thursday’s COLLAGE series on my blog.

Here is a sample of the 33 papers I created, using a square punch:

Ahoy Matey!

Avast ye!  (Listen up!)

It is that time of year again to go, Trick er Treatin’ and collect some treasure! (Candy)

Last year, I carved a pumpkin, you can see my post here:  Sir Earhand, A Ghost And Frank

This year, I decide to draw one:

I remember many childhood years of “Trick or Treating” in our neighborhood and filling a plastic pumpkin bucket full of Halloween candy.  How about you?

When we returned home, my sister and I always had to dump out all our candy on our pink bedspreads and compare our “booty” er, candy!!

I think my older sister was a pirate one year…  we usually had create our costumes instead of buying a one.  One of my favorite memories was when my sis dressed up as Granny… but that is for another year!

Yo-ho-ho! (Hahaha)

Happy Halloween to the child in all of us! 🙂

One “Grape” Fish

I have been singing the song, well, not really THE song (MORE like the first stanza…)  I Heard It Through The Grapevine,” by songwriter, Marvin Gaye all day.

I think this whole grape thing started with Jenna’s post on Friday, Pour The Wine.  If you have not met this talented artist, cook and my friend at The Painted Apron – I do hope you check out her blog!

Here is my one “Grape” Fish:

Wishing you a HAPPY Sunday!

Cheers!  🙂

Perifish

I invented this word, perifish.

I thought it was an interesting word for this post about a pear and a fish.

I was experimenting with Rembrandt soft pastels yesterday and this wild pear apPEARed:

Do you think it is of the Rainbow variety?

And Sennelier extra soft pastels for this colorful fish:

It looks like a happy, Clown fish to me!

Color always brightens a cloudy day for me – I hope it brings you a smile!

Cheers! 🙂

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! 🙂
