A Little Out of Season

Commentary on My Art, Felt Craft

You may notice that I changed the wording of my blog a little. It’s a little more inclusive of other projects I take on besides art. I also do a variety of sewing crafts that I donate to Catholic Charities Maine, USA that are raffled off to raise funds for programs all over the state.

One of my projects is the Twelve Days of Christmas ornaments in felt by Bucilla (a popular manufacturer of felt kits). I have three of the twelve done and I have the 3rd one to show you today. It’s the Three French Hens. It’s the 1st picture I’ve taken with my Surface Pro. I could even do some basic editing.

After I get done here I’m going to get a little breakfast than look at everything everyone else has been doing. It’s so exciting to get to know people on the blogs.

Thank you all for your likes and comments it’s a lot of fun and very encouraging!

Blue Butterfly

 

I am so happy!! It’s just that it starts to feel like I’m getting the feel of pastel again with my graphics tablet. I did this little butterfly that feels like my first real success in realistic art in a long time. And I enjoyed doing it.

On another topic I opened my email and saw that many of you that I have been following have been busy and posted. When I get done here I’m going to relax and look and see whats been happening.

A Big Sniff!

Abstract Art, Commentary on My Art, Sketch

I thought just to relax and fool around in Paint–I meant to draw the rings of Saturn. But my computer suggested a long nose–oh-oh! this is not good. Then I tried another shorter curved line and maybe you guessed it–I got a nostril–now don’t worry it doesn’t get gross.  The next curved lines formed a small figure-eight under the nose. I’m sorry, to my poor mind it suggested a bow-tie. So I went on from there and finished the drawing.

I mean no social commentary that I can really put my finger on. It’s just something that popped out. If anything it’s a cliche funny–sorry.
