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! 🙂

A Pink Cloud World

I was going to take a little blogging break… but I had so much fun creating art yesterday that I had to share it with you!!  🙂

I started making pink clouds for Carla Sonheim’s new year-long class that I told you about here.

It was snowing yesterday which inspired me to create this haiku for my hand-stenciled pink clouds:

And then one idea snowballed into another… hehe…

The above one was created with a variety of mixed mediums such as fluid acrylics and watercolors.  I then started layering patterns with my small 3 x 5 inch Gelli-Plate, using it like a stamp.

I couldn’t stop with just one!  So I created another sheet and added a few other colors with my handmade stamps:

I was getting tired but didn’t want to waste paint on my brayer.. so it led me to create this piece:

And then try a collage using paper I made for my clouds:

It says, “In a pink cloud world – everyone has rosy pink cheeks – And no one gets sick with disease like cancer or dementia.”

I know it is wishful thinking but we can all dream BIG in a Pink Cloud World!

Happy New Year!!  Cheers!  🙂
