For me, July started slow. Or maybe it was just me feeling like a sloth from the heat. Chug, chug, chug, then whoosh! I was in the mood for flowers this month. Still, I did manage to change it up here and there. I made an effort to use scraps, small bits of paper. And I had fun with those. The largest I worked this month was 5 x 5 inches. That felt like the perfect size for a daily painting.

I found a terrific video about painting wet on wet cats. Furballs. She also does birds, dragonflies and flowers that look really fun. I have since done about a dozen furry critters, that may turn up in a pattern soon. I stopped my watercolor month at 30. Monday was crammed, and I decided to cut myself some slack. I even snuck in a short nap. Actually, it snuck up on me. 🥴

August means starting my planning for the September 30-Day Creative Gathering. What was it Cathy (comic strip) would say? ACK! 😲😄

✨✨ Coming soon! Our ninth gathering! Wowzers! ✨✨

Falling leaves placed at #1497 of 1723 with 15 votes. I knew it would not place well when I voted and saw all of the fabulous florals. So gorgeous! But I am happy with this design and will do a few more colorways.

Thanks so much for following along with me this month. It went by fast, didn’t it? And thank you for taking the time to vote on Falling Leaves! I know it is a chore.

Thank you, thank you, thank you! 🙂

This weeks challenge was in collaboration with East Fork Pottery. Designers were given a limited palette from their core glaze colors. I referenced classic design motifs and simplified them for a Scandi feel.

Voting is now open, until the 25th.

I’m showing two weeks of paintings here. I’ve had technical difficulties with my site. Basically I have used up all of my allotted space on the server. Which means I am unable to upload new images. Not good for an art blog.

So here they are. Slightly out of order I think. Most are 4 x 4’s. I have also done 4 x 6 and the last several days I have been using 5 x 5’s.

Everybody born comes from the Creator
trailing wisps of glory.
We come from the Creator with creativity.
I think that each one of us is born with creativity.
