its been awhile…

 

“Take the obvious, add a cupful of brains, a generous pinch of imagination, a bucketful of courage and daring, stir well and bring to a boil” ~Bernard Baruch

I have no excuses, just haven’t been particularly creative lately.  I am looking forward to a new class with Mary Ann Moss that begins next Tuesday.  She is closing this session after July 4.  She will offer it again next fall.  Go here to read more about it.

I did manage to complete three sets of 4x4s.  I wanted to do something different.  This first set is doodling with a Sharpie markers, both fine and ultra fine.  Here’s what it looked like before cutting into four sections:

This set numbers 81-84:

This blue and red set numbers 85-88.  I used inks, acrylic paints, graphite, and lots of gel medium.

This last set is collage, charcoal, oil pastels and acrylic paints.  I used Mi-Teintes Pastel paper by Canson.  This paper is the darkest shade in the pad…a dark gray.

This set numbers 89-92:

Have a great rest of the week…until next time…

  1. As you probably could guess, I love the doodle set…and the other two sets are pretty cool, too. I understand about not being creative for a while. I go through that same thing every now and then.
