In-Sphere-ing


Have you entered Life Imitates Doodles Weekly Wednesday Giveaway #11 yet? This is one of my favorite drawings. It was one of those drawings where I just started with no idea in mind and it just seemed to flow. Done in 2015, with an Ohto Graphic Liner-Pilot Drawing Pen in a Rhodia Landscape Blank Webnotebook.

Me at 3:00 AM


Yup, that’s me at 300 AM. While poking around through my older art, I came across this self-portrait that I did back in 2013. I had been creating an art journal based on prompts from Pam Carriker’s ”Creating Art at the Speed of Life’ and was experiencing insomnia at the time. One of the promptsContinue reading “Me at 3:00 AM”

Before the Grandstand


You can find Life Imitates Doodles Giveaway #9 here. You can tell that I liked the Masters swaps. I think I did all that I could find that year. The challenge this time was to do ATCs based off the work of Degas. The art above: Before the Grandstand – Pitt Brush pen & Elmer’sContinue reading “Before the Grandstand”

Things in the Sky


You can find Life Imitates Doodles Weekly Wednesday Giveaway #9 here. This swap was fairly open in theme. There are many things in the sky. I chose to go with weather. That’s kind of in the sky.

Someone You Love


I’ve been sharing lots of my older artwork, and today I’m really going for old! The Doodlewash prompt for today was ‘Someone You Love’. Given that my 37th wedding anniversary is coming up next week, this drawing that I did of my husband in our first year of marriage seemed appropriate. I have to confessContinue reading “Someone You Love”

Playing with Shape Tape and Watercolor Techniques


This is a repost of artwork from 2014, that I did while playing with techniques ala Jeanette Carbonetti, who wrote the ‘Tao of Watercolor’.  It’s a very loose style, where you apply the paint and then follow where it leads. In a seeming change of subject, Frog Tape just came out with a brand ofContinue reading “Playing with Shape Tape and Watercolor Techniques”

The Big Bang


I was ill this week and just as I started feeling better, my mother became ill. As a consequence, I’ve done very little artwork. I feel blessed, because I have this HUUUGE stockpile of older art, and new readers who haven’t seen it. This is a piece that I did back in 2010. I don’tContinue reading “The Big Bang”
