This is a page from my idea book, or its the general all things book I keep by my side and everything goes in it. Anyway it started with the leaves, then the color, then I decided to hide the birds in it. Now remember this is just an idea, something I will keep in the book and think about, and when i decide what it should be maybe a collage maybe a painting. This helps me when I don't have any ideas (art wise) .
The above doodle is what I call fridge art, I had a paper bag, that I was going to recyle, and I thought I would just doodle on it, and then I used water color and pan pastel, and here is my version of fridge art, it will stay on the fridge till I get sick of it and go into the recycle.
Now this lined book I always have by where I sit and use my laptop, I write good websites, or tips I want to rememeber, I am always trying out ideas, and colors, and making lists.
And this is my index card for the day, only three more to go, we dont have to post on Sunday
. So that is it for Saturday, today we are waiting for family to come, they are taking our freezer off our hands, we dont need it anymore, just for the two of us, we wanted someone who needed one to have it.
well only 5 days left of the index challenge, mixed feelings. I liked doing them, but I am tired of posting every day, as you can tell i have missed a few days. my life is not exciting, so what do I talk about, the mudane that is my life. I dont think so, but today I am going to talk about a little challenge that I am going to do for me. I just read a blog (see sidebar) 100 days of no junk food, she went a little further and ate no processed foods, organics etc. But I am going to start small, 30 days of no junk food (except diet coke I cannot give that up) and I am going to try not to eat processed foods, hubby is going to do it to, because if he doesnt he fends for himself. I talk tough but really I am not. So starting today, no pita chips, no hotdogs, no popcorn at the movies unless I make it myself, on the stove, not in the microwave etc. So I will let you know how it goes
I know I have been MIA for a couple of days, have been dealing with my neck. You know sometimes you wake up your neck is sore. Well mine is really sore, and my shoulder that whole muscle, so today I am off for a neck massage to see if that helps. The first index card was made with a seed catalogue, an image of hands and apple, and some coloured paper. This one is titled "Going Green"
Awhile ago while checking the mail, i spied this the buzz thing
in the garbage, so of course what does any artist do but
pick it out of the garbage, dust it off and use in her art.
Now I am really not cross eyed, but the eyes on this portrait look like I am, in fact I don't even resemble this woman, but I keep trying. I am also making these on index cards, for the 31 days of portraits. I am keeping myself busy with arty projects this summer, still working away on my e classes.
Late posting today, I have been cleaning. This is what my desk looked like before I started the cleaning of the studio. I have been busy working, on e classes, index cards, portraits.Plus nice weather .
So below is a 2fr (an index card and a portrait ) saved myself some time. Hope you enjoy today short and sweet.
