Folktale Week – Day #1 – Forest

Hello Friends!

I rested my arm and shoulder all day and night yesterday so I decided to put my wolf in a forest with Little Red Riding Hood.

I still wanted to do it in pencil, though, so I made the scene as simple as possible. My shoulder feels good so that is all I am doing today. Tomorrow’s prompt for Folktaleweek is magic. I am going to try to do something even simpler for that.

Have a wonderful day, and give someone you love a big hug! 😁

Folktale Wolf

Hello Friends!

I just wanted to share this pencil drawing I started a few days ago. I planned on drawing this wolf in a forest with Little Red Riding Hood for folktale week, but after working on it last night, it isn’t finished, and my shoulder needs a rest today. There are places in its fur that need darkening. (That’s why it’s unsigned) So anyway,  I am sure I won’t be drawing folktale scenes this week, but I plan to in the future. It is something I really want to do. However, I might try some super simple pen sketches…maybe. I have discovered pen is easier on my arm.

In the meantime I am also working on some of the physical therapy exercises to keep my shoulder from getting worse.

Have a wonderful day, and give someone you love a big hug. 😁

Toy Box Angler Fish

Hello Friends,

Here is my last toy box piece done in acrylics. This angler fish just needs a new light! But apparently he has frightened the cashier at Bright Lights. However, the little old fish leaving the store is totally oblivious.

And close-ups…

This was a fun project. I can hardly wait to get the hardware for all of my toy box pieces so I can hang them on the walls of my creative corner.

Have a wonderful day, and give someone you love a big hug! 😁

 

 

Crustaceous Friday!

Hello Friends, 

Happy Friday. I sat down to eat my lunch after a morning in town a little while ago. So after I finished my grilled cheese sandwich, I decided to work on some character sketch ideas. And when I opened my sketching notebook, I found these ink drawings I had forgotten I drew last week!

So now I am going to go work on some new ideas. I have also started sketching something to paint in acrylics onto my last toy box piece. I worked on it yesterday afternoon. So a couple of projects going on in addition to working on my picture book. In a couple of weeks I am also going to do something called Folktale Week. For seven days in November many artists will be drawing a scene from a folktale or fairytale that includes a certain thing common in these types of stories. Here is the list!

1. Forest

2. Magic

3. Witch

4. Ghost

5. Insect

6. Mirror

7. Animal

Have a wonderful day, and give someone you love a big hug. 😁

Inktober 2018 – Day 31 – Slice

HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!

Hello Friends!

This year I found a purple (my favorite color) witch hat! And a little purple bat! Last minute decision as usual. That’s how Halloween always seems to turn out for me!

I hope everyone stays safe tonight! I will probably watch “It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown!” and maybe some Goosebumps.

Have a wonderful night and give someone you love a big hug! 😁

Inktober 2018 – Day 25 – Prickly

Hello Friends, 

Meet Prickly Pete! I got this done later today than I usually do, but here is my ink drawing for today’s prompt, “prickly.”

The best part of my day today was getting to visit with my daughter for a few hours. She’s been staying in town all week because of work, but she loves her job at the doughnut shop. She usually goes in around 5 or 6 in the morning. So she still has a lot of her day left when she gets off. I am proud of her and glad she loves her job. So it was nice to have her home for a couple of days.

Well, I hope everyone has been having a great week. I am not sure how many more days of Inktober I will do. I am reading LOTS of picture books and still doing the online art classes at https://www.svslearn.com/

Have a wonderful day, and give someone you love a big hug! 😁

 

Inktober 2018 – Day #18 – Bottle

Hello Friends,

I just took a few minutes to sketch this out. The prompt for today is “bottle.” As you can see, my bottle has a message in it. I wonder what it says?

Have a wonderful day, and give someone you love a big hug! 😁

Inktober 2018 – Day #16 – Angular

Hello Friends, 

I decided to draw an angular shaped sea turtle today with just a regular black ballpoint pen and stencils. No measuring…just eyeballed it.

So…without further ado, meet Angus, the angular sea turtle!

Have a wonderful day, and give someone you love a big hug! 😀
