Uptight Chains

The next spread in my Sketchbook Project, Limited Edition. I really like the chains, and I totally meant to do more in this book, but it just didn’t happen. As for the doodling comment, I was definitely fighting my gremlin that day. I would really like to develop some new doodling patterns, designs, techniques, etc. I guess the only way for that to happen is to keep drawing and hope that some pop out.

Two more sleeps until I leave for the Makerie! I can’t wait. I will be posting about it when I return!

Art Exchange

This is my entry for the Arthouse Co-op’s recent project, the 4×6 Exchange 2! There are 10 days left to sign up, and it’s free to join (apart from the postage you will pay). I’m looking forward to getting something in the mail. Truth be told, that’s really why I joined – I want mail!

And yes, I know this looks like sperm. I’ve been told. I decided to use one of my unfinished paintings from last year for this project because, well, I’m lazy.

Painted Apparel

New for me today: I was inspired by my clothing. I am usually inspired by my cousins, the Beckermans – the clothes they wear are gorgeous, the combinations are wonderful, and the creativity they show is mind-blowing. But me, I’m a stay-at-home mom, no need for heels and Gucci. So for me to be inspired by my own clothes is pretty rare!

I love this holey kensie top – it’s so retro 80’s! I still have a tank with holes from the early 80’s that my Grandma bought me in Paris. The cowl is a gift from my mega-talented mother.

Anyway, I took this wardrobe and turned it into a watercolor painting. Let me know what you think!
