I signed up to participate in the Sketchbook Project’s “Infinite Sketch.” You get a 6×9 postcard with some art supplies and you create a segment of a creature that will connect to another artists’ segment, and so on. One artist gets selected for the head and another gets the butt. I’m somewhere in the middle but that’s ok, less pressure on me.
This is my body segment; a duck footed caterpiller.
(I almost left the poor little witch and her kitty in pilgrim land).
The little witch was able to return from early America with the help of a witch who’s been dodging Salem witch hunters. The little witch used her historical knowledge of the time period to give the early American witch some useful information about heading to some place much better for her long term health.
Upon returning, Thanksgiving was in full swing with all the witches celebrating. Kitty managed to “acquire” a full turkey leg.
The season of the Witch is winding down. The witches are now preparing for Winter Solstice celebrations along with Christmas. They are making bayberry candles with good luck spells to sell to people who want to burn them on Christmas. They are blessing tree farms so that the warmth of the trees bring love and warmth to the people who bring them into their homes to decorate. They are making bunches of greens and other natural items to sell that bring harmony, health and happiness into homes for the holidays.
The little witch and kitty will be busy during the holiday season.
At least kitty gets to have this quiet moment to enjoy her turkey leg.
Several months ago I sketched a corner in my village while waiting for my husband and daughter.
I didn’t like the sketch so I ditched it and had to do another. It’s been in one of my sketchbooks as a bookmark. Today I decided to play with it to see if I could salvage it.
I like this version much better. Kitty is watching the street activities from above.
Trying something different. I still have many these premade backgrounds left. They were intended for October but I think they work better for November.
This kitty is from one of my starter kitty piles. I make a bunch similar to doing a mono print and then embellish them later. Doing a bunch this way gives me some inspiration and pre-started kitties that I can do while in a coffee shop or on the beach, where this one was completed.
Sometimes a different environment prompts a different take on how I embellish a kitty. Take this kitty for instance, the tear drop water shape was inspired by the ocean. The hearts are the result of seeing couples walking on the beach. And the red? Uhm, I only had red, yellow and blue Tombows with me.😂
My daughter was home for a week. On her travel day today, she received an email that her connecting flight was canceled.
Now her seat assignment was in question and she envisioned that she would be in this very situation flying home.
Fortunately, she was able to get an aisle seat and the flight home was smooth.
