9-15-16 ~ My Artwork for the Week



365 Days Spirit Art Journal
Day 12 ~ Play

365 Days Spirit Art Journal
Day 27 ~ Mission Impossible

This week I set out to try drawing mundane items around and near my art table using black ink. I did not put the little saying with them that you see with the usual etegami, but I was doing this as practice.I am having trouble finding a brush that I like to use with the ink that does not separate.





These are the watercolors I did.
My daddy worked as an engineer until he was 100. At 91 they all gave him the usual birthday office party and one of the engineers drew a caricature of him. Well, I decided to see if I could do the same thing. He always wore Lily Pulitzer men's shirts and trousers and bow ties. He was never without his hat because he was totally bald. He lived to be 100 1/2.

The little girl here is a actually a paper doll I made and watercolored. I hooked the her arms and legs to the body with picture wire. It was fun to make. I did not have room to put the real name of my elementary school on the building so I decided to use mine...:-)

  9. Such a lot of art this week... I'd love to have so many drawings and paintings to share. I'm lucky if I get one piece completed per week. I also have those fabulous watercolour paints.
    Your Daddy's caricature is great... he certainly looks a snazzy dresser.
    Happy PPF to you

  10. Wow, a cornucopia of awesome art pages. Each one has so much interest. The second one with the row of houses is my favourite, all the words you added make you stop and think a while, when reading them.

  17. Lots of good spirits and great art. I really like the houses one. I think we've all had moments into those kind of houses. Not good to be in one either, but so easy to find those. I really enjoyed these. Hugs-Erika

  18. I love hearing about your father. He was quite the mentor for you! Your art is simply charming!

  19. You do produce such charming art.
    I love each of your little houses, they look very pretty in their lovely colours and patterns. So sad that the people who live in them have such negative attitudes! Maybe you have encouraged them to do better!
    The first piece is amazing fun and I love the spotted cat looking on. Cats are good at enjoying their life.
    Your father sounds like a wonderful character and person and your painting of him makes him look so happy and contented with his life. Great clothes too.
