Do you have a favorite pair of shoes?
I had fun creating these shoes, inspired by Andy Warhol’s shoe art; you can see other shoe art I did here: The Power Of A Shoe…
I started by drawing shoes from the internet, making a simple stencil. Next, I used the shoe stencil as my pattern on my hand-painted papers.
I experimented with hand lettering from an online class I’m taking from Andrea Joseph at Sketchbook Skool.
Lastly, I used the one of the shoe stencils to create this doodle and quote from Marilyn Monroe:
I hope you have happy feet today…

I decided to try a new approach for my tree collages today. Remember the trees I drew a week ago? Well, I made copies of the black and white images and used them as part of my collage papers for my trees!
And everyone knows, an apple a day keeps the doctor away! But what about a collage a day? I think it keeps the Creativity Zapper away!
An apple and pear tree:
Oh, and I almost forgot! I used my gelli-printed deli papers and my Prismacolor pencils to add a touch of color.
A weeping cheery and orange tree:
Do you have a favorite? I’d love to know what you think!
Hug a tree today! 🙂

Is worth two in the bush!
I thought of this proverb as I was creating my acrylic painting:
It is a work in process!
I’m taking an online class called, “Birds on Birds” from Alison O’Donoghue. The class is hosted by Carla Sonheim. Check out Alison’s art on Pinterest – she is amazing!
I started my painting by covering a 11 x 14 cradled birch panel with black gesso. I sketched my design onto the panel and started painting with heavy body acrylics. It took several coats to cover the black. I have a few more layers to add so stay tuned! 😊
Did you know that the origin of this proverb dates back to medieval falconry where a bird in the hand (the falcon) was a valuable asset and certainly worth more than two in the bush (the prey).
Happy Creating! 😄

Guard the hen house!
This old proverb was first recorded in Contre-League in 1589. It means: Don’t put somebody in a position where they will be tempted of wrong doing.
Here are a few quick sketches of a fox:
And here is my blue hen in watercolor:
