Silly Flowers

So today’s little work is just silly flowers. I read this interesting book called “Paint Lab” last night. I was expecting fun similiar to the “Drawing Lab” book, but instead found some art history and serious ‘work’ involved. It is a good book – just too serious pour moi.

You know me, happy art for happy people. 

But I was inspired by a lesson, so to remove the serious I drew these little guys – each have a different petal.  They are on drawn with black ink on a very busy background. In fact, it is so busy that you can barely see the works. Original “sketch” attached so you get the idea….

Have an art filled day !

The jellyfish – and some artists

I think if I was the one that named this creature,  i would have used jellifish as opposed to jellyfish. The first coming out of literally no where – was marker and watercolor – done in an hour with coffee. The second, 16 x 20 on canvas and in acrylic was more like three hours without coffee.

Funny thing – paintings look nothing like my drawings – but they don’t have too, I guess. The green jelly looks like a hamburger – from far away.  I really admire artists whose work is constantly ‘them’. I guess I am still finding me.

The acrylic painting is in the Etsy Shop:
Not sure where the paper/watercolor will end up. Might make a good print….

Funny, but we seem tailor made for each other – and I was OVERWHELMED by the beauty, creativity and sheer fun of the other ladies works.  I am hoping to be lucky enough to exhibit this fall in Pfafftown, for Whimsical Women on November 23rd. More to come.

The Simple Life – with an occasional bump

For 2013, I chose the Simple for my one little word. The ink sketch was done before I chose the word, but it made perfect sense. It is also a little more ‘elegant’ than my usual Whimsyville-istic style, but I like it just the same.  The “m” has extra bumps – a lot like life sometimes.

What’s your word for 2013 ?
