Lines of Fire Painting: Complete Failure

Over the last few weeks, I have been working on a new painting for my Crossing Lines series. This time, I was using the colors of fire, red, orange and yellow, as my color pallet and planned to add a silhouette with something representing fire. The background came out wonderful…

Project: Awareness Ribbons and Safety Pin

I have chosen to draw a number of Awareness Ribbons and other awareness icons. I’m planning on drawing more. It started back in October with the Breast Cancer Awareness Ribbon and Yellow Awareness Ribbon. This past week, I have added five more Awareness Ribbons and a Safety Pin. There are…

The last half of October was a little too crazy. I went on vacation to visit my parents, got sick and only missed two days of drawing. Once I was home and well, I drew two drawings on two days to make up for the missed days.  InkTober was a…

Project: InkTober 2016: Days 10-13

This week has been tiring, but I made it through.  I was able to get all the drawing done this week, but it was hard.  I almost didn’t make it on Day 11 & 12.  Day 11’s ended up being a simpler drawing and I messed it up a little. …

Project: InkTober 2016: Day 9

Well, we are already nine days into InkTober.  I have learned a lot so far.  I am trying new techniques and combining new mediums.  This drawing was a lot of fun.  I tend to watch a lot of drawing and painting videos over on YouTube and there have been several…

Project: InkTober 2016: Day 7 & 8

After how busy this last week has been, it was really nice to relax on Friday. I worked on my InkTober drawing, did a little reading, typed up yesterday’s post and relaxed. It was great. Today was a day of running errands and celebrating my best friend’s birthday. Then, coming…

Well, it’s Day 2 and I’m already going off the prompts.  Today’s official prompt is noisy, but I didn’t like that one.  Since I did a train for my grandson yesterday, I decided to draw a turtle for my granddaughter today.  They both have birthdays this month, so I’m going…

Project: Crossing Lines

I am fascinated with patterns.  I have been doodling patterns for a long time and it was only a while back when I learned about Zentangle®.  I have taken the whole experience and added it to paintings.  “Crossing Lines” is a series that focuses lines that cross in an asymmetrical…
