Snuggle Bug

I like making AND receiving handmade cards…

How about YOU?!

I made this card for my husband’s birthday recently:

The holidays are not always easy…

Snuggle someone you love today, even if they bug you a little!

Happy Wednesday AND Thanksgiving to those who celebrate!

Cheers! 🙂

A Weird Bug?

I interrupt this blogging break…

To show you this strange bug that appeared in my art journal:

Wednesday’s can be about weird birds…

And weird bugs!

One never knows what creative bug will land in my sketchbook next…

Happy Weird “Bug” Wednesday!

Cheers! 🙂

A Tropical Bird

It feels like winter has arrived in the Pacific Northwest…

So this tropical bird showed up for today’s weird bird:

It was so cold outside that my cat hesitated, not once, but 3-4 times to go outside! Brrr!

Happy Weird Bird Wednesday!

Cheers! 🙂

P.S. Speaking of tropical, I have decided to take a short blogging “vacation” until the end of November. You will find me snuggling with my cat to stay warm!

Good Luck

A package may be landing on your doorstep soon…

Since Christmas is just around the corner!

Happy Weird Bird Wednesday!

Cheers! 🙂

Leaves Falling

I was out in my yard yesterday and noticed the birds leaves falling

After all, it is FALL!

Several birds were in a tree and it got me thinking about my weird birds.

There is such a variety of leaf shapes much like birds!

Perhaps there is a leaf bird? Have you seen any lately?!

Happy Weird Bird Wednesday!

Cheers! 🙂

A Trendy Bird?

Today’s weird bird is shaping up to be…

HIP as in hippo:

And ROCKIN’ as a Robin:

Does this make it a trendy bird? (Combining hippo and bird shapes)

Happy Weird Bird Wednesday!

Cheers! 🙂

P.S. Next week I will continue with some “chic” birds!

A Beacon

Today’s weird bird has a lighthouse beak that is a beacon for shore birds…

I hope this patchwork of imagination gives you a smile that lights your face!

Happy Weird Bird Wednesday!!!

Cheers! 🙂

Primary Fun

I’m enjoying the assignments from my online class, Creating Simple Characters with Nelleke Verhoeff.

It was primary fun to color these characters with yellow, red and blue color pencils:

I encourage you to draw characters as things from your imagination!

Cheers! 🙂

A Flutter of Fashion

I bring you a flutter of fashion for today’s weird birds!

The spotlight focuses on Barbara in an old odd-fashioned frock:

Shiela is out on-a-limb with this ensemble:

And lastly, Petunia poses in a favorite party pinafore:

I hope you enjoyed this little fashion fun today…

Happy Weird Bird Wednesday!

Cheers! 🙂

September Square-A-Day Project

Hello Friends,

I hope you are enjoying my daily art squares as much as I’m having fun creating them!

I tried to tell a story in each art square with watercolor or Copic markers and a touch of collage. Sometimes I added a little Micron black pen too.

My stories for September’s square-a-day project are simple, something I did or saw or felt for that day.

I was inspired by the artwork in this book by Roxanne Evans Stout:

I hope you share favorite squares that may inspire you in your own stories…

Cheers! 🙂

P.S. In case you are wondering, square #17, the words say, “Ferris Wheel.” It was the name of a paint sample. I thought it looked like a child’s name. Our local fair occurs in September. 😉
