And I’ve gone off at a tangent….

HI BEAUTIES! EVERYTHING CAN BE ART. HAPPY SATURDAY!

tesswyatt's Blog

Suddenly – just like that, it’s all about chimneys and architecture ……

And then – I am spending ages on my iPhone layering and fiddling in my apps – making my self bug eyed and just a bit obsessed (again) if you ask me ….






At least some of these are taken and played with outside, wandering Edinburgh getting some fresh air (lol) – anyone watching me must have thought I was doing a window or door survey ……..



And I notice I am doing a bit of painting – though still architecturally based


And then there are those that I deleted


Apps I love using :

Image blender, where you can layer two images , mask , arrange and change filters


Prisma – adds arty filters to your work , my favourite is ‘Heisenberg’ – which has an image of Richard Cranston in role, as its logo ( so…

Are We There Yet?

HI SISTERS! SOMETIMES SKETCHING CAN BE HEALING. HAPPY FRIDAY!

joy murray -- life ~ art ~ dreams

When I go through an illness, I like to wait until it’s over or I’ve adjusted to it before I start to talk about it.  For most of my life, since I was 16, I’ve had a neurological condition that defied diagnosis.  It started with seizures, then I developed weakness in my lower limbs  For a while it was possible Multiple Sclerosis, but I was diagnosed as “abnormal.”  When I was 46, after a thin slice MRI of my spine, they found a lesion in my thoracic spine (as well as a fracture vertebrae,) and diagnosed me with Transverse Myelitis.

The good thing about that diagnosis was that while my nerve damage couldn’t be repaired, it wasn’t degenerative.

Only it was.  Subtly at first.  A lot of my decreasing my mobility was blamed on increasing osteo-arthritis in my lower limbs.  I made a progression from cane…

Oceans

HI BEAUTIES! LET’S SAIL THIS NEW DAY AND SKETCH A LOT 🎨

Peevee Barrington

Watercolor Painting: Oceans

The Song “Oceans” by Hillsong speaks to me a lot. Each time I hear its lyrics, I always feel pushed and encourage to do things I’m suppose to do and set my fears aside.

Whenever I think about missions and ministries, the bridge part of this song pierces my heart and just leads me to pray these words.

Boogapony Holly

HELLO SISTERS! WE CAN SKETCH ON A PAPER BUT ON A WALL TOO. LET’S TRY IT!

Graffiti Lux and Murals

I found this in an alley, & it made me think of Holly from House Of Heart

Artist: Nicolas Canon

I sent a pic to Holly and asked, “Does this look like you?” She answered positively yes, then mentioned something about ducking lightening.

Artist: Resa

Then I muttered I should be doing graffiti tours in Toronto. Holly said she’d drive the bus. Well, one thing lead to another, and we formed the Boogapony Dancers.

Artist: Nicolas Canon

Of course we would need the perfect outfit to dance in front of graffiti, street art and murals. We came up with the outfit you see here.

UNPLUGGED for acoustic music

Artist: Resa

PLUGGED for electric music

HELLO BEAUTIES ! TODAY WE’VE GOT SOME GREAT SCENES FROM THE SHORE. ENJOY

SKETCHING ON WHIDBEY ISLAND

Early this September my husband and I camped in our trailer at Fort Worden State Park campground located in Pt. Townsend.   Ending the last few days of our camping adventure at Fort Worden is always relaxing and full of adventures, with long walks along the sandy beaches covered with interesting shells, rocks, pearly beach glass and marine life; plus the views along the way of Whidbey Island, B.C. Canada, Cascade Mtns, beautiful sunrises and sunsets; and, a visit to the very nearby historic town of Pt Townsend.

My camera gets very busy as I carry it with me where ever my feet will take me, while on walks through the large state park.  Very near our trailer in the campground which is located on the waterfront, we can see the lighthouse situated at Point Wilson where there is also a standing war II bunker for protection from the Japanese…

Sweet Peas

HI BEAUTIES ! LET’S THINK ABOUT FLOWERS. THIS IS A GOOD WAY TO START THE WEEK. HAPPY MONDAY!

Karen Bailey Studio

Sweet Peas ‘Fire and Ice’

I have been working on this drawing for awhile now.  Adding different backgrounds to my flower portraits has been an idea in my head for some time, but I have had trouble trying to figure out how to do it.  I have tried before with smudgy type backgrounds (technical term there), but I have never liked it.

The idea for this background came to me when I was photographing some sweet peas last year and was looking at the great pattern of the stems and tendrils and thought they would make a good background, especially if I did them in grey scale.  This also gave me the chance to use my water soluble graphite sticks.  I always love the chance to play with new art supplies and it may even justify their purchase!

Although I am fairly happy with the result, I am not completely…

Make Art...Magic Happens

Today’s art making includes a drawing I made several years ago. I inserted this Victorian style lady in the Procreate app. I attempted to make a collage of sorts. The button motif was found in a magazine.
