Once again a big
To Kristin and Eva for all of their hard work to keep us going here week after week :)
We'd be lost without you ♥
A varied assortment of art here this week.
First is me journal page for the "COLOUR ME POSITIVE " challenge week 14
WITH HOPE ALL THINGS ARE
I had just read several articles on the plight of the Gray Wolf in America and just had to paint this handsome fellow.
From there I went to drawing on a tee shirt with Sharpies and misting with alcohol :)
This was fun and done on a 2X size shirt and I'm only a large so it will be a comfy sleep shirt for the summer. It will have to be hand washed in cold and will still fade over time. But still a fun relaxing project ♥
Then I decided to recycle a rice bag for a snack sack for me to take to work. I only work 4 hour shifts so I don't need a full lunch but if I don't take something healthy I'll be buying something nasty out of the junk food machine.
Here's the bag...
8 inches X 12 inches
8 inches X 12 inches
and here it is after the first round of painting...
...decided to try a fake stitching painted around the edge...
... so went with this...
It's got a zipper at the top and is made of rough burlap. It's the perfect size for and apple and yogurt ..maybe throw in a little art journal or a book. Probably not the most durable lunch sack. But we eat a lot of rice and I never throw the bags out. So I can just paint up another one or two ore three... :)
While surfing Youtube today I ran across a short film by Jodi Ohl on her
"DIRTY FLIRTY BIRDS" class and thought I'd give her style of birds a whirl :)
I haven't painted anything yet but I just might have to sign up for the class cause it looks like fun..
Even though I promised myself no more classes until winter. We'll see :)
The Bluebirds are building a nest in one of my birdhouses :)
Of course there is a fight every day with a sparrow type bird over the house so we're hoping the Bluebird wins ♥ They've been putting up a good fight.
Not the best picture of the Bluebird but it a long ways from the front door and taken through the window while leaning at a strange angle :) If I open the door to get a photo they fly off :(
Here's the bird that is trying to take over the birdhouse.
It looks like a Junco which are usually gone north by now... but the bill and legs are dark on this guy and the Junco's are light color. The only other bird in my book that looks like this is a Black Phoebe which is a great match but they are not normally found this far east. Who knows what the bossy little fellow is. I just hope he finds a different home soon ! The Bluebirds haven't nested here in years and I'm very excited they are back.
