My goodness, this snow is never ending! My son is loving all the days off, glad someone is happy;) I keep seeing daffodils and tulips in the stores so they keep me going, that's for sure. I feel stuck lately but I'm always up for drawing/painting a flower. I bought a little pot of daffodils and they are prime right now, however they'll be gone soon so I have to scope out my next victim,lol. I drew this last night and painted around the marker with gouache.
Zoomed out a little.
This has nothing to do with anything. I just saw ln Pinterest and thought it was cool!
Have a good night and be well, Fran T/WeThree3

I try to remember to paint every few days or so because I'm a lettering nut. I would do that all day, every day. I think I was a scribe in my past life! I love quotes and with that illustrating them is my favorite thing to do! So painting breaks it up for me. Today I finished this quote, below.
I enjoy the sailing/nautical theme a lot. My husband and I have had sailboats in our past. It's a great theme I like to incorporate from time to time and a mermaid every so often too:))

Oh boy, I'm neglecting this blog so bad! I was laid off late last year and started a new position early January so I've been making art and just posting on Instagram. I just got this blogspot app so hopefully it will make posting much more easy! I'm off today so I thought I'd try this out and make a blog post today. I'll be surprised if I get any comments as I'm sure I've lost a lot of followers due to my neglect! But today is a new day! :))
I got a pot of daffodils at Trader Joes and thought I'd try this on a journal page. Going across the fold seemed easier and I need to use more of my journal space! I noticed that many of books have blank left hand pages!
I like to use my phone's camera to check my values. It's a tool I use a lot! Gosh what did I do all those years ago?! LOL!
I painted in most of the page but it looked boring to me
So I added some more color throughout and around the edges, etc... this is what I ended up with-
Have an awesome day! Hope it's warm where you are because it's coooold and windy here in NY!
