For Day 15 of #WorldWatercolorMonth and our prompt of “Monochromatic,” my mind immediately leapt to a zebra. Sort of monochromatic, shown here in two colors, because that’s as low as I can ever go. Sure, Lion King
I’ll check out the art supplies right now. Thanks for sharing Little Charlie with us. I feel like we would have be best friends. Yeah I try so hard to get back to Little Mireya because even thought there was hard times my art and imagination carried me through. I have taught special needs children art and it was the best days of my life. I’ve thought about going to get my credential but the educational system just doesn’t allow for the kind of freedom to truly teach art.
This is the perfect painting for the prompt and to help support your fundraising. I am in the process of putting a box of art supplies together and mailing it out. Are their specifics on what to send? Only watercolor related or any art or craft supplies? Thank you, Charlie.
Well, I started out using my little Hahnemühle watercolor journal that is my favorite, but I ran out of room, so I moved on to my only little journal left in my stash; a small Field Artist watercolor journal. Halfway through, and it came unglued. This is the second time this has happened, even after replacing one. Has this happened to you? No…[Read more]
We’ve reached Day 14 of #WorldWatercolorMonth and for our prompt of “Furry Things,” I opted for this tiny little furry kitten. As many of you might know by now, I’m allergic to cats, but that doesn’t stop me from
Oh what a cute kitty! Looks similar to the one that we use to have which lived to almost 20 and still thought she was a kitten. We have not gotten a dog or a cat since. Maybe one of these days.
Optimism is something that I also try to hold on to. I’m working on the inner child thing. Doing better. 😉
Oh, as superior beings, a cat will definitely judge, even from day 1. But they forgive us our deficiencies because we’re only human, lol. You may not have a definite step-by-step but your activity book is quite helpful in the way it describes your process!
Thanks, Sandra! 😃💕 hehe… yeah… I swear I have a cat after all. Phineas has the same exact attitude! lol And thrilled you found my book helpful! Yay! It’s technically a step-by-step, but as the whole book itself, not a single activity. hehe… now you know how my crazy mind works. Just like a kid’s after all! 😉
I do love kittens! When we first moved here, there was a farm next door and people would drop off unwanted cats all the time. So cruel! But since they mostly weren’t fixed, we often had kittens around here in the spring. We rescued some for ourselves, and then some that we gave away, and then we trapped all the adults we could and had them neutered or spayed through a program that does it for a small donation. From a high of around 20 feral cats, we are down to two or three. I miss the kittens!
Cute little furball! And yes, we find time to do the things we love to do. I love that quote and when people ask me how I have time to sketch every day, that’s what I tell them. (And that I don’t spend much time on the internet!)
Thanks so much, Anna! 😃💕 Glad you liked my kitty! For me, my inner child is literally that reminder of how fearless and curious I was when I was a kid. At the time before I thought I knew everything and could practically predict the future. 😉 It’s about simplicity and taking things as they come instead of over-analyzing everything with that adult knowledge we think we have. It’s why when people asked me to make an art instruction book, I made an Activity Book for All Ages! hehe Sometimes, we think things are supposed to be “harder” when we’re adults, but we’re really just making life and sometimes art, much more difficult than it really is! 😉
