Joey’s Weekly Challenge #132

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?

Anyone Can Draw!

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

Green

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

Please Take One

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

Branching Out

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.

There are so many health positive aspects of creating art. So create something, anything. Grab some markers, Read More

ZenFlowers

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

Spiraling

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.

First Feather

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?

Stripes

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
