This has been sitting on my desk for a week. I watched a Youtube demo, and that artist covered her tile with one solid color, and then painted flowers over that. I had that in my head when I started this, but clearly I was not thinking. I covered the paper in the sky blue. We all know what you get when you mix blue and yellow.
Started 4 x 4 inches. But the head was flat on one side, and the petals sort of flopped on that side as well. Digital crop to the rescue. Funny it took me that long for it to dawn on me to crop. But it did. Took a while for this to grow on me.
Site was down for three hours today. The internet to the server was out. The internet was out to all of Miles City (MT. Where the server is). Here’s hoping it stays up now.
Thank you Leslie Saeta for bringing us all together. I am in awe not only of your wonderful art, but of how much you accomplish. I really feel I have grown as an artist, with each of your challenges. With this one especially. I am much more at ease with taking risks, and working through difficulties.
Thank you to those who took time to vote in Sea’s Art Party. Have you looked at the prizes in the giveaway? Don’t forget, voters are eligible!
Cindy, thank you for including me in your artist interviews this month. I appreciate the opportunity to introduce myself to your readers. It was such a pleasure to learn about the amazing artists you featured.
Sea Dean, thank you for creating the fun and fabulous Art Party! I really don’t know how you three manage to paint each day, write blog posts, run these huge month-long events, as well as running a business.
Sandy, thank you for nominating me for the 5 Day Art share on Facebook.
And a SUPER MEGA THANK YOU to everyone who followed my progress this month. Thanks so much for taking the time to comment, I really value your opinions! Thanks for the shares, and +1’s, likes and pins! Thanks to my new blog followers!
Thank you to Sea for my special birthday gift. So gorgeous!
And even though they were not birthday presents, thank you to Sandy and Kathy for the chance to have an original piece of your fabulous art! I am blessed!
Hope I am not forgetting anyone. But the way my mind works, and sometimes doesn’t, ya’ never know.
I numbered the paintings in the collage, because I would like your opinion. Do you have a favorite? I am prepping postcards for Kat Sloma’s Liberate your Art swap. Below are some of my favorites, but I’d really love to hear what you think!
This is alcohol inks, watercolor, and acrylic on canvas. I love the messiness. It started with just two big blobs, I had to carve out the shapes a bit, but they were all there. That is why the top “flower” doesn’t really match the others. I liked that shape, so I left it alone. I am debating taking out the leaf veins, I really like how they look in the first slide.
I have worked on this since before the challenge started. Thought I’d get a day or two ahead. HA! I think it might still need some more work. I am going to let it sit for a few days.
Leslie Saeta is our host for the painting challenge, I hope you will visit her site and browse today’s creations. Visit Sea Dean to post your daily painting, or to vote on those posted. Prizes for the most active artist, AND the most active voter. You can vote for three artists each day. That includes me, of course.
I just now noticed how strong the texture from the canvas is in these slides. It is not distracting in person.
Artist Cindy Williams is featuring artist interviews this month – and today is my day! Hope you will hop on over to her blog to take a look!
