Painting au jour

Acrylic/Mixed Media, Bic Cristal pen, Carla Sonheim's 365 class, Collage, drawing cats for mom, Mixed Media, Pen & ink, Sktchy July 29, 2019

Here is another recent painting for your viewing pleasure…..

It’s a collage/mixed media piece. 12×16

Here is a quick sketch I did this morning using the Sktchy app on iPhone.

The young man had a scrunched up face and it made me laugh. He was sketched in a drawing box that I have reserved in my morning pages.

Kangaroo/gift

30 Day 30 Pages, Carla Sonheim's 365 class, Hand Lettering, Pen & ink, Tombow March 21, 2018

I signed up for Carla Sonheim’s 365 workshop for 2018. Everyday there is something in your email. A lesson, a prompt, a quote, sometimes an interview with a variety of artists (visual, musicians, literary). I have found that the random pick (two words picked out of a hat) are great for filling that sketch box in my morning pages.

Today the random pick was “kangaroo” and “gift.” Too bad snowboarder wasn’t in that bag instead of “gift.”😂

Today’s prompt also helped me do my #30pages30days prompt, too!

Happy St Patrick’s Day

30 Day 30 Pages, Pen & ink, Sketches, Tombow March 17, 2018

We “celebrate” the old fashioned way, we cook/ bake and eat together as a family. My family is basically UK Isles. So I am a little of everything, Brit, Scottish, Irish, etc. My husband doesn’t mind (he’s Italian), there’s Irish Soda bread so as long as there is bread, he’s happy.

And no, I do not drink on St Patrick’s Day. It’s a day where I do a personal, anti drinking protest.

Here is a quick Tombow sketch and I updated Mack’s hat from the previous sketch to add green.
