Breaking News: Art Gowns’ Models Turned into Mermaids

⚓⛵ HI SISTERS! AS YOU CAN SEE, EVERY MERMAID HAS AN OCEAN AND A UNIQUE DRESS. ENJOY!

Art Gowns

Mermaid Holly here! It’s terrifying, but myself & some of the Art Gowns’ models have been turned into mermaids.

We know who did this, and Princess Blue Holly has vowed to capture the evildoer, and return us to our regular gorgeous model selves. In the meantime, we’ve decided to have a fashion show, and I’m your host for the Art Gowns’ Mermaid Fashion Show.

First on the Runway is Mermaid Gigi, in a very Avant Garde quadruple fin, one shoulder eye catcher. Right behind is  Mermaid Rene Rosso in an ultra-green sweeping fan tail extravaganza with strapless bra top and full length gloves. What a show stopper!

Unfortunately Mermaid Rene Rosso won’t be singing a Torch Song for us, as it just sounds like she’s gurgling.

The usual beauty team can’t breath under water, so some very talented MerChicklets were hired by Mermaid Gigi for the event.

Boho-Jeansjacken Makeover

👖🎨WELL DEARS! WE ALSO CAN PUT A DIFFERENT KIND OF ART ON OUR JEANS CLOTHES.

Des Lesers neue Kleider

Hallihallo ihr Lieben!

Ich habe da endlich mal einen Plan umgesetzt, ihr kennt das sicher. Die Idee hatte ich schon vor Ewigkeiten und eigentlich war es nichts weiter kompliziertes, aber irgendwie setzt man sie dann gerade dadurch nicht in die Tat um, oder? Aber jetzt hab ich’s getan.

Ihr müsst wissen, ich bin ein riesiger Desigual Fan. Man könnte mir eigentlich irgendetwas von Desigual geben, ich finds auf jeden Fall todschick. Selber kann ich mir zwar in einem Desigualladen nichts kaufen, weil ich mich niemals entscheiden kann, aber generell, wenn ich könnte, würde mein Kleiderschrank genauso aussehen wie der Laden. Aber sind wir mal ehrlich: Wer könnte sich das leisten? Jersey-Tops für 49,95? Nur auf der Vorderseite bedruckt oder bestickt natürlich. Hosen für über 100€? Mäntel für das doppelte? Ich konnte einmal einem Portemonnaie nicht widerstehen. 59,95! Aber hey, das hält wenigstens. Denn jeder kann dir bestätigen, das Zeug sieht…

Inktober: Prompt No. 25 Tasty

🚣 WELL BEAUTIES, I ALSO LIKE SUSHI BUT I PREFER MUSSELS AND OYSTERS.

I’ve recently found that I really like drawing food and general store cupboard ingredients, both of which are easily to hand, that said this sketch was one I did using a food magazine as inspiration.

August in the Prairie…

🐝🐞HELLO BEAUTIES! IT’S TIME FOR ENJOY THE PRAIRIE💚 KAREN PHOTOGRAPHS ARE A TRUE PLEASURE😍

August in the prairie
© 2018 Karen A Johnson

Every time I visit the prairie I seem to see or learn something new.  Today, bees were gathering pollen from grasses which I’d never seen before.  And I saw a male bumble bee chase off a bird, several dragonflies, and anything else within a 4 foot radius which was rather amusing.

In August the prairie is teeming with life, frantic to get everything accomplished before the summer season ends.  Yellow flowers are everywhere, waving high above my head as I wander down the path.  There are other colors, of course, but you have to slow down and look for them and once I do, other things can be found, like colorful wasps, delicate gaura flowers dancing on thin stems, and two different hummingbird moths.

I notice a large dragonfly take off and I slow down, bummed that I missed it.  After…

40 June paintings and some drawings

😉 HI DEARS, THE ART BY CORINNE HAS SO VARIETY. ENJOY IT!

Corinne maakt

I promised long ago to share the June pieces. As I wasn’t very lucky – health wise – with a painful shoulder I left it for a while. But I don’t want to leave it indefinitely. So I am collecting all June pieces here. Most days I worked on the series of squares. On other days, especially in early June, I went between acrylic painting and other media. There seem to be a few days missing, but I am finding them as I go. I have been keeping track rather loosely – most of the acrylic paintings were scanned. Not so the drawings done at home, away from home, all in different sketchbooks ;-). So there may be some I haven’t found, will add them later when I do find them.

June 1 or 2 : I drew Barbara the crocodile on her sofa. This was done on top of…

Two Brides

👸🎨WELL BEAUTIES, LET’S PAINT BEFORE A WEDDING😉

tiina lilja art

I have written a bit about the Two Brides before, first focussing on the element of painting a figurative portrait with the aid of photography and latterly to discuss the concept of failure as a creative practitioner.  This time, however, the piece is no longer a work in progress: I have indeed finished my first portrait of persons in nearly seven years.

Two Brides, painting by Tiina Lilja, oil on canvas (2019)

If you are a regular reader of my wee blog or you found yourself here via Instagram, I imagine you to be pretty familiar with Two Brides already.  I sketched out the foundations for this artwork in January 2019 and having moved house and struggled with achieving what I considered a good enough likeness, I worked on it in little bits until I was happy with the costumes, background and, of course, the identifying features of the faces and hands of my two subjects.  This one…
