Art Every Day 2 and 3

I'm going to define "every day" rather loosely.  I went to Hobby Lobby yesterday to get some more Artist Trading Cards and to get a print framed for my mom for her birthday coming up (shhhh!  Don't tell.  She has a very fancy new computer, but she doesn't know how to turn it on, so I don't think she'll see this).  I consider that "creating".  But I didn't actually put any art to paper yesterday.  That's okay, though.  I'm going to go easy with this deal.

This morning, I got out my watercolor pencils and my art journal and just did a few little illustrations. As I pointed out in this post, I often see images in all kinds of weird places.  The little blue guy appeared in the wood grain of the pew in front of ours at church on Sunday.  I sketched him out in my little notepad I keep in my Bible.  Then I copied him and colored him in my art journal and added a friend. 


To see the other participants for today click here.  Maybe after the weekend I'll have more than this kind of little thing to show.  In the meantime, may the Lord bless you with warm drinks, warm hugs, and warm conversation.

  2. Love your little found creatures. The ones I see in wood grains are usually a bit more ghoulish.
