This blog needed an art infusion! So i apologize for the crappy photography... I haven't quite figured out the lighting in this new house but i wanted to show you that some drawing and doodling has been happening during the transition... Infact its pretty much all i've been able to do art-wise .. my journal has seen lots of attention... In the above picture i'm fascinated with dangle doodling... I don't quite have the hang of it but i had a lot of fun...In reality those colors are alot brighter...
Each and everyone of these photos will enlarge if you click on them and i hope you do... On this page i wanted to try my hand at drawing a fairy.. I SO don't do people but thats what an art journal is for IMHO is to experiment and play... there are no mistakes in my art journal... Its where i work out ideas and techniques... That sometimes transfer to a new project... Never fear you will see this fairy again.. the possibilities for her wings seem endless to me.. If you only knew how hard i worked on those hands... I started with the wing on the right.. it was sooo not going right so tried a different idea on the left wing... and the glitter coming out of her hands ... i had to make that show up better.... trials and tribulations... all FUN! The quote... ' Its not about the color of your wings.... Its all about the fairy dust' ... Just something that popped in my head... doesn't sound 'quite' right but its a work in progress..
I wanted to make up some MailArt postcards to announce my new address....... so i doodled 4 different houses... I'm using a new to me paint set that was gifted to me a couple years ago.. I used it for the background and the smoke from the chimney ... I didn't realize when the white dried it would be sooo opaque so the smoke is a little too heavy handed for me because i kept adding more and MORE white... uughh... But in the end i made it work... The house itself is colored with colored pencil then cut out and glued on... I apologize for the glare at the bottom...sigh..And again i feel it is brighter in person... I forgot to take pictures of the other three postcards.....Maybe the recipients , if they read this, can help me out? However i do have a copy of the black and white drawings .. i think... I'll post them when i find them ....lol
I hope you had a fabulous weekend and your week is off to an auspicious start... Lots , lots going on around here... I'm ready for the merry go round to stop any time now... but i know it won't for quite some time as we just made some decisions that will keep us in disarray for an extended period of time... but we are determined to make sure the bones of the house are in the best working order we can manage..... so we can enjoy the rest of retirement... Please check out Elizabeth's Tea Gang! We'd love to have you!
