An Oldie, Moonlit


I’m back from my family reunion in Florida, trying to get over the cold I got while there (really, the family could have thought up a better gift, lol). I’ve used up all the paintings I did ahead of time, and I need to work on some reviews and tutorials.

So. Facebook came up with this: “Sandra, this photo from 7 years ago today was your most loved that year. We thought you’d like to look back on it.”

It was always one of my favorites, possibly because the original was lost along with some luggage. I’d taken it on a similar trip to the one I just took so it seemed fitting for today’s post.

For the reasons, mentioned above I may not post every day this week. Then again, the muse might decide to go mad and art might bloom from my fingers like spring blossoms in the rain. Unlikely, but ya just never know!

Catch Candy for Inktober

  • Official Inktober Prompt: Catch
  • Doodlewash Prompt: Candy

For today’s prompts, I decided to do a searching artistic abstract encompassing the spirtual result of reaching too deeply into the Halloween candy bag … okay, I admit it. I wasn’t where I could easily look up today’s prompts and so I just drew an abstract, figuring I could put a spin on it.

It does kind of look like the bottom of a bag full of candy, right?

Today is the 30th day of Inktober, where anyone who is interested is challenged to do an ink drawing every day! It’s almost over!

  • Official Inktober Prompt: Injured
  • Doodlewash Prompt: Bat

The Batariffe Alebrije is often mistaken for an injured bat.

It is only seen in the month of October, where it swoops down stealing candy from children. Afterwards, it falls into a sugar coma and hibernates the rest of the year.

Bone Coat for Inktober

  • Official Inktober Prompt: Coat
  • Doodlewash Prompt: Bones

Did you know that fossils aren’t really bone? Over the years, minerals from the ground seep into the bone.

They sort of coat it, sink it, and gradually replace it.

  • Official Inktober Prompt: Dark
  • Doodlewash Prompt: Shadows

You know, I was just in the mood to draw a horse today even though the prompts didn’t really call for it. And, I thought, hey! This just proves that dark shadows don’t have to be evil. Sometimes, they are just proof that something wonderful is happening.

  • Official Inktober Prompt: Tasty
  • Doodlewash Prompt: Cookies

I loves tha shortbread cookies. Oh, who am I kidding? I loves any cookies – and they love me! They prove it by sticking around my waistline forever!

Real life is going to be demanding much of my time for the next couple of weeks so I don’t know how much I’ll be around. I’ve got blog posts scheduled, but may not respond quickly to comments. OR I might be less busy than I think. Time will tell!

Definitely no more experiments for a while.
