8-12-16 ~ My Week in Art ~ Day 1 and Day 2 ~ Genie Robinson

My Etegami This Week

My Stippling This Week

First I sketched from a photo I had taken a picture of North Mountain popping up its head threw a bobbed wire stretched fencing and power lines. I do not like in general the way it turns out, but I love my fencing.That top piece was really curved and way up above the rest. Maybe a larger animal stretched it trying to jump to freedom.

 Just for Fun

Oh, how i miss my quilting, but my sitting with my back does not allow it.
Last week I saw where one of our bloggers (I cannot remember who...I'betting old) but it immediately reminded me of just how addicted I am to Hershey bars...DAY and NIGHT ( I always eat one before I go to bed) ...and MIDDLE OF NIGHT. I know they are bad for me especially at night considering the sugar on my teeth,  my digestion cycle , and sleep, but I still wake up and head for the fridge (they get soft here from the hot weather) tiptoeing TRYING to be quiet so Buddy does not hear me...hehehe.  That is so silly. He always hears me and knows what I am up to :=-)

One night I was thinking about my quilt and the beautiful vintage silk one my DIL gave to me, I decided to try creating a Doodle Quilt. This was so much fun.

 While walking I saw many, many Passion Flowers on the trail. They are very prolific at this time of year. I had never seen them before so I took some pictures and then came home and had a bit of doodling fun with it. The most fun was adding color though the petals on Passion Flowers here is usually blue or lavender.

Last but not least, I have joined a group called 365 Days of Spirit Art sponsored by Nancy Baumiller.
This group is not for experienced artists in all sorts of medium, a beginner is welcomed. You can join in at any time. Nancy has created a Face Book page for all of our contributions:
Art2Hearts. I have only made Pages 1and 2, but it is a start.

  1. You've had a great and fun art week, that's for sure, but I wish you hadn't mentioned Hershey bars - sigh!! Happy PPf, Hugs, Valerie.

  2. These are great. Definitely in the Genie style which I admire. I like your quilting through art piece - a great way to continue doing something you enjoy in a different fashion. Great quote in the upper right corner of your "Who am I piece." Love it. Adding watercolor to your inkwork really brings the piece to a whole other level. Keep on doing what you do so good. Yes, I too sneak a Hershey's Kiss every evening. Life's too short to live it without chocolate.

  3. lots of nice art :)

    I can't stand Hersey chocolate anymore, just tastes off/bad now i've had chocolate here. do like the cookies and cream bars still tho :)

  4. Thanks for sharing your journal pages with us. I luv the doodles best

    Much love...
