I love to create new and exciting things as well as work on something that is simple like this drawing. It’s just a branch, but I tried to create something that was whimsical and yet realistic. I like the way the whole thing turned out and I hope to work on more organic things in … Read More
I completed this flower with my 45-minute lunch break at work. I used a Sharpie for the thick lines and fine liners for the smaller lines.
I really enjoyed creating this. It was so much fun just continuously building this until it turned into such an amazing art piece! I didn’t even expect for it to turn into a heart, so I was pleased with the outcome.
So, this piece started out very weird. I had no clue what was going to form from it. As with all my pieces, I let my mood take flight, adapting the piece in many ways. What I drew in pencil isn’t even close to what the final product came to be. I am pleased with … Read More
You can find her challenge here. This one started with a tangle called Diva Dance, right down the middle of the piece. Adding the flowers just made sense to me. I thought about just completing this with black ink, but I thought it might be a bit more interesting with color. What are your thoughts?
So I decided I draw something using only single straight lines and circles. This is just one of many ideas I had for those that swear they can’t draw. But if you can draw a straight line and a circle, you can create a masterpiece. This is something I have learned from watching many artists. … Read More
Oh, the seasons are changing and the leaves are turning. Before long it will be all about pumpkin spice and then peppermint EVERYTHING! So before time flies past, I wanted to take a minute to appreciate the green leaves and the flowers and everything in the summer we are soon going to be without. For … Read More
Sometimes we just need to draw. It doesn’t need to make sense, it doesn’t need to serve a purpose other than getting your feelings out onto paper. I have found my mind cluttered and sometimes foggy lately from daily stresses. In this drawing, I had to just go. I tried some things I’ve never tried … Read More
I’m looking at this drawing. I wanted to do something way different than my usual things, but I saw myself as the drawing progressed, falling back into my comfort zone. So how exactly do I branch out? I have decided that I am going to start classifying my art. Abstract, Fairy tale, Zentangles, Mandala… and … Read More
When you find something that touches your soul, you can’t help but grab onto it and never let it go. For me that is art. I have found something that I love and I don’t want to stop. There are so many health positive aspects of creating art. So create something, anything. Grab some markers, … Read More
They say the eyes are the windows to the soul. Well, this is my interpretation of my soul. There are beauty and color, but there is also structure and stability. There are depths of my soul that are untouched and hidden. I have fallen in love with my soul. My soul is music and my … Read More
There is such beauty in the world around us. I loved this sorta ying and yang type drawing. I tried my best to create something that filled the page but could be looked at from any angle. After I completed the drawing and was happy with how it turned out, I decided it needed just … Read More
I started this piece with a swirl of circles. Once that was complete I started adding in some lines that helped it turn into a beautiful design. Now that it is finished, I am very pleased with it. I feel as though I could get lost in this piece.
This piece started out as a secret door and then I just decided to make it under water. I had been wanting to do some jellyfish for a while but I didn’t know how to incorporate them. So I decided to make it their home in the secret cave. In this piece, I found that … Read More
I had been wanting to draw a feather for a while now. I saw all the beautiful creations of dream catchers with some of the beautifully embellished feathers attached. So, I decided to teach myself. I don’t think it turned out too bad. What do you think?
I found one of the most difficult subjects to talk about with my daughter is perfection. In this world, everyone puts standards on you and you don’t even ask for it. Society as a whole expects perfection, but we are not perfect. My daughter cried when I told her to try to draw, whatever she … Read More
This one was so much fun to do. One of the challenges on one of the pages I belong to was to do some stripes. LOVE this idea. I wanted to bring a little Dr. Seuss, if you will, to my art. This turned out better than I had hoped and I even came up … Read More
