One Resolution: More Art in 2021

….on day one I’ve started to draw from my new book In Bloom by Rachel Reinert

I’ve tried this before where I wanted to make art every day of the year. I made a lot but I didn’t quite hit 365 drawings in 2018. This year I won’t beat myself up if I miss a day or two but I’m going to give it another go. My husband gave me a book for Christmas that I asked for and today I cracked it open and drew the first two flowers featured in the book.

I’ve discovered over the years that I’m very much drawn to flowers in my photography and my art. I always believe there’s more to learn so I’m really looking forward to drawing and learning more about flowers.

Wacky Bird Wednesday

….’it’s a hummingbird’

According to Winnie this is a hummingbird. It does have a long beak, I’ll give her that. We finally heard back on her reaction to this week’s Monster Monday. She declared that monsters visited her room and this one’s name was Fred.

Another ‘Scary’ Monster

….oh no, are they too scary again?

Monday’s Monster Monday generated this response from our granddaughter, “That’s a scary monster.” A few weeks ago she didn’t want to look at the Monday drawings because she knew they were monsters and monsters are scary. We’ll see how she responds to next week’s drawing.

A New Bird for Winnie

….a little under the weather so my husband missed a few drawing days

Today’s drawing would have been good for Weird Bird Wednesday but it was posted today. Winnie’s only comment today was that Sundays should be Sunday Rabbits. Kevin’s working on that.

365 Days of Art – Heavy, Light, Fast

….day 145

I can’t believe that I haven’t made more art this summer. Last Friday Carla’s assignment involved taking a fat marker and drawing an object of our choice using a heavy line, a light or thin line and a quick line. We were to make a 9 or 10 quick drawings and then choose three that we favoured. I decided to draw tea cups. It was easy to do while I was at the cottage.

Now I have to enlarge the three pieces that I chose and do whatever I want with them.
