A couple of weeks before the challenge began, I made a list of title ideas. I always have a hard time thinking of a title. Late at night, under the gun so to speak. I have yet to use any of them.

While painting the stems, a song came to mind. Stand Tall. I remember this song being a favorite. “Inspirational”. I was only nine, so I seriously doubt I was recovering from a heart-break. Funny that his 1970’s suit compliments today’s painting. Not quite sure how to feel about that.

 

 

Hey, I think the comments are working again! Carol was able to make one. YAY!!! 

Still feel like I am going strong. Haven’t hit that wall. Maybe I won’t this round. Fingers crossed.

Thanks so much for sticking with me on this bumpy website ride! Enjoy  your Wednesday!

Had some errands today, so I did not have time to work on the clouds. Sat down to paint at 10 pm. Getting later and later aren’t I? Spent a half hour thinking about starting a painting. Decided to do a sketch and see if it would be worth posting. Maybe not, but it is Day 13.

I pulled out my waterbrush, watercolor crayons. Oh, and a couple of watercolor pencils. This is the result. I have a pad of the mixed media paper, bought on sale, and this is the second sheet I have used. I really like it. Wondering why I haven’t used it more often.

I added a bit to the foreground of yesterday’s work. I just felt like I had three separate pieces, instead of an integrated painting. Sky, hill, grass. So just a bit of indigo, to add shadow, and reflect a bit of the hills. Don’t know if it was successful, but I like it better.

Maybe it is too busy now. Do you think it should just be a light solid wash over the entire area?

Enjoy your day!

Happy is how I felt painting this. I managed to stay light handed, and not get lost in details. This was number three of four, and I was on a roll.

For all my success yesterday, the exact opposite was true today. I created four rather dull pieces. I will take a look again tomorrow and see if a creative crop, or more layers can save them.

Happy creating y’all!

 

The artists participating  are creating gorgeous work!

Down to the wire. Ten minutes to midnight. Spent the day fixing things I had no idea were broken on my site. Trying to. Still more to do. Well, they were probably fine until I did the updates. Not sure why everything seems to go wonky after an update.

But I have a site icon now. Wooo-whoo! So if you have 20 tabs open you will be able to see my little orange ranunculus and find my site easily. One small step for blog-kind.

 

My Pinterest board for this challenge
is over 730 fabulous works of art strong!
