Thanks again to Eva and Kristin for being the creative drive behind this "ARTASTIC" weekly event that inspires so many of us.
Here it has been a rather strange week with a total lack of inspiration and skill. The first part of the week when I tried to force the issue ... everything was looking like some mutant creation out of a very bad science fiction movie. So I gave it a day or two of rest and tried again. Finally flowers were looking like flowers and squirrels were looking line squirrels. ♥
at Art Journal Journey the challenge for November is "Inspired by the Masters" and since November is also the birth month of Georgia O'Keeffe I choose to do a big flower. The Echinacea .
Which just happens to be one of my favorite flowering herbs.
It also happens to be one of my mom's favorite colors and I have been thinking of doing a painting for her bedroom I decided on an Echinacea for her.
So far I'm really happy with how it's going and hoping my Muse doesn't take off on another flight of fancy and leave me stranded.
Neither are as mystical as a Georgia O'Keeffe but they are BIG flowers and I'm happy with them .
Winter weather is officially here and Ella cat has started her "Winter Sports Watching"
She sets there for hours watching the birds at the feeders. I have a video of her and it shows here head going back and forth just watching. So cute.
