A Quick Hello

Hello! Hello Rain! Rain on Mingus. Dark and foreboding. The sun is above us now, but we had two brief spritzing’s. Heaven! I hope it lasts.

Awhile back I took these photos. I changed phones, and the new camera is great! I need to learn how to use it.

I’m very excited. On my old phone this would just look like a fuzzy yellow blob. Never knew there was a trail on the hill. Wow! Haha. Amen for free upgrades!


The Sun loves the Moon so much that he dies every night
to let her breathe, and in return, she reflects his love.

I am taking part in Karen Abend’s Sketchbook Revival. This is my second event. I am days behind, but I am having so much fun. You receive two sessions a day, videos to follow along. And each instructor offers free gifts, more lessons, tips, or inspirations. The workshop runs for several weeks and it is free. You work at your own pace, and can start at anytime. Take a look!

I love meeting the instructors, new artists to follow, and learning new ways to be creative. Watercolor, mixed media, collage, journaling. And that is just the first days!

ps… the rain has cleared. LOL 🙂

Just had fun with this. Tried the plastic wrap technique, but I think I laid the paint on too thick. None of the first layer, green, shows through. I rubbed in indigo, turquoise and clay afterwards. I scratched into the wet white, and green is visible. Just not in the scan.

I am happy with this. Trying to decide if it is too plain. If I need some sort of pattern. And do you think I need to add the stem to the bloom on the left? In my mind that stem is curved, and sitting behind the other flower. Oh I know, shadow on the vase?

Here is the texture from the plastic wrap. Sort of like finger prints.

Textured paint.

 

Giveaway

I tossed slips of paper, numbered 1 – 7 into a bowl. Day #4 was chosen, the 25th. And from day 25, the 7th comment was chosen. (Again, numbered slips of paper in a bowl.) I apologize for not thinking to take photos. Truth be told, painting a day ahead, and everything going on this month has me discombobulated. I did the drawings last-minute.

I am so grateful for your continued support and friendship. Leslie’s challenge is all about building the daily painting habit, having fun and experimentation. What brings me back year after year, is your friendship and fellowship. True blessings in my life!

So pleased to share my art with you daily, and with the weekly giveaway gifts.

 

Congratulations Carol Edan!

Let me know which of these you would like, and I will get it in the mail to you.

Mingus

We started the day dark and wonderfully dreary.
Mingus stayed undercover.
Right outside my window, snowballs were at the ready.

 

Where's Mingus?

By 2 pm, the sky had cleared.
Late in the afternoon I saw the changing colors, and took these photos.
All within 30 minutes or so. Mingus still has a hint of snow.
