Paint Party Friday Time!

It’s been awhile since I’ve contributed to PPF.  But, hopefully now that we are in a new year, holidays are behind us,  and reparations on my home are done I can concentrate on some artistic endeavors.  I just started back to the church arts and crafts group and we were sitting around talking about what kind of project we wanted to start.  One lady is partial to fabric crafts, another likes watercolor and two of us are sort of undecided.  I’m leaning towards mosaic projects – maybe decorating some spring flower pots for the church tables – or maybe some more bird houses or mosaic key racks.

As we were discussing our next project I did a  still life contour drawing of some flowers on the table.  After downloading into computer I tinted them.  But actually, this will be a work in progress as I plan to color with watercolor or colored pencils.

If you’d like to see more artwork go to Paint Party Friday.




Art Journel Entry – Paint Party Friday

I’ve finally picked up my art journal and created a feast – thanks to titbelsoeur for the inspiration! I started with a placemat designed by Elena Vladykina/Ruth Levison, started stamping away – and then added printed paper and tissue paper. I probably could do some more (and maybe will later) but wanted to share with Paint Party Friday, Creative Every Day and Sunday Sketches. You can click on the small photos and see them in gallery size.




          

Paint Party Friday sketch

Here is a sketch from a still life of mums and a big flower that may be a sunflower (not sure). I’m posting two pieces here:  The first picture is a combination of my original sketch and some digital artwork. The second one is the original, as is. Feedback welcome! Which do you like best? For more sketches and other art creations go to Paint Party Friday and Creative Everyday.





               

Paint Party Friday is Here Again – and Orange You Glad It’s Friday!

First off, I’d like to thank all my blogger friends who have visited my blog!  I really appreciate it and it inspires me more and more to create something, art, poetry, or just sharing a meme with others of like mind.  And especial thanks to those who have written comments – and know that I appreciate each and every comment, suggestion or praise!  Back in 2008-2009 I had two blogs and no one to share them with.  I don’t know if it was because I didn’t understand how to network or whether blogger just didn’t have the technology that WordPress has now.    Suffice it to say, I’m doubly appreciative to have finally connected with the rest of the blogging world!  It is very exciting and uplifting  to be able to  connect with So many wonderfully talented people who enjoy writing and sharing their worlds with others.

Today I am sharing the latest entry in my art journal with Paint Party Friday and Creative Every Day. The artwork today is a collage created with tissue paper, labels, medium/varnish and markers. It’s finished Except I will probably go over the scriptural verse with some color or collage a thin tissue of color over it. I think it needs to blend more with the picture. Any ideas?

And I’m also sharing this with Sunday Sketches. I’m working on the text box still but figured it would be better if I shared this with SS now and show the finished artwork next week.  (A few times when I went to link with Sunday Sketches it was too late, the link was already closed – so disappointing!)



This is one of Arizona’s splendiferous sunsets, being shared with Orange You Glad Its Friday.
