29 Faces – Face 1 Sherry Malone

When I realized that the 29 Faces Challenge February 2015 was already underway, I had to stop and evaluate where time had gone and what the heck I’d been doing that made me go through the whole month of January without getting paint on my hands every day.  (I have done art, but it’s been […]

Thirty Paintings in 30 Days Challenge

Thirty?  Thirty.  Three, Zero.  30 in thirty days. This really is a challenge, especially for someone as new to painting as I am. I got to thinking… after thirty paintings, in thirty days, I won’t be so new.  I’ll be more practiced and all because I decided to jump in with both feet and take […]

Summer Sunshine

We’re in the middle of a heat wave, with daily temperatures in the nineties.  It’s not a sunny heat wave. It’s a rainy one.  It’s humid, so humid, and raining so hard I think we are in the middle of a monsoon.  If the sun was out, it would be drier, but the temperatures would […]

ATC/ACEO Girls

Today I’d love to show you two new little aceos/atcs  that I did for art swaps.  They’ve been sent and received by their new owners, so I’m not ruining any surprises. This first one, done with ink and colored pencils, was for an Alice in Wonderland theme.  There had to be one red heart in […]

Mailing Alice and A Practice in Painting

Over on Angela Kennedy’s Community, Creative Souls, I took part in an ATC swap.  The theme was Alice in Wonderland.  Have I ever mentioned I love Alice in Wonderland?  I have adored the books, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking Glass since I was a child and have read and reread them more […]

SoC Week 4

Pink and Apple Green, with a smudge, splash or a pop of dark green. Such luscious, girly-girl colors for this week at Summer of Color. Pinks and greens together, always make me think of flowers, so it’s no surprise that flowers are included in what I did this week. The first thing I did was […]

Summer of Color 4’s palette this week was Lavender and Grey with a smudge, splash or pop of Plum.Absolutely fabulous colors to work with!  So fabulous, that I was inspired to create three pieces of art using them, two mixed medium and one digital. It reads:  “discover yourself” and “It’s never too late to be […]
