Not posting this weekend

365 Project, Art, Personal

Good morning/afternoon/evening (where ever you are in the world),

I’m not going to be posting any pictures this weekend. I won’t post any of my pictures of the day until Monday evening/Tuesday morning. I will be taking pictures and process them as if I’m going to post them but I’m not getting online to post them.

See everybody next week!!

Have a wonderful weekend.

Man’s Best Friend: Coffee

Uncategorized

John:

An excellent picture of “Man’s Best Friend – Coffee” interpretation…

Just a short post. I’m taking a break this weekend and wanted to get in today’s art project. I decided to try painting with coffee. Let’s just say I need more practice. I didn’t like the final painting as a painting so I snapped a photo and made a nifty edit with Pixlr Express. What do you think?

"Man's Best Friend - Coffee" ~ If you click on the photo, you can see the photo on my deviantART page and if you really like it, download a digital copy or buy a print. :)

Day 289/1020

365 Project, Art, Black and White, Local
Day 289 of my 365 Project

Day 289 of my 365 Project

The reason for the black and white pictures the past few days is because I was challenged on Facebook to post black and white pictures for five days. I’m also in a group on Facebook and participants are to do daily art challenges. I incorporate all three challenges (picture of the day, black and white challenge, and daily art challenge) into one final creation. Today’s challenge is man’s best friend. This is my interpretation of it – Soulmate.

Yesterday’s Art Challenge: Clamhands McMel

Yesterday’s Art Challenge from Unchained Emporium and I believe it came out way cool…

Originally posted on Unchained Emporium:

Yesterday’s art challenge was to draw yourself as a cartoon. I’m going to try to post my caption from deviantART here, since I know few people have the time or desire to go see a photo on another website. I have a lot of fun with my captions. I want people to smile when they read them!

Today’s art challenge was to ‘draw you as a cartoon’. bunneh icon16 Thank God for Chibi Maker because I wouldn’t even know where to start without some kind of reference point.bunneh icon15  This is terrible. I knew it was terrible the minute I tried to add eyes. bunneh icon8 But, I used that and just kept working with it. I do like the sort of twisted-ness of this. bunneh icon7 And I like the fact that she’s wearing that “You came home with /WHAT/?” look. Her hands are balled into fists because I can’t draw hands. At all. I…

Working on art challenges…so am I

Originally posted on Unchained Emporium:

I’m working on yesterday’s art challenge, as well as today’s art challenge. I hope to have photos to share with you tomorrow. If I’m able to finish them today, it will still be late before I’m done and the signal is terrible from about 7pm until about 2am. I just wanted to keep you guys posted. The challenges I’m working on are “A Change of Heart” and “You As A Cartoon”. The second one will prove to be the most difficult for me, but probably the most helpful. I need lots of work with proportion. It would be nice if I could just use ChibiMaker! I may use it as reference for lines and such. I’ll share one of the chibis I created with it so you can see what that is. I know I’ve blogged about it before because the girls and I really enjoy having fun creating little…

Flower Photos

Uncategorized

John:

Some nice shots from the yard…

Originally posted on Unchained Emporium:

I took three photos of flowers in our yard to see what I could do with them in my phone editing apps. I used Pixlr Express today to edit these. But I also have Flickr’s editing tools, now, so I’ll be playing around with those a bit, too. I hope you enjoy these photos! I’m trying a new way to post photos that doesn’t take so much time. Our internet connection being as terribly slow as it is, it makes it very difficult for me to upload photos in one place, only to have to upload them all over again in another. Meh…it didn’t work. Oh, well, the long way round it is! John has inspired me quite a lot and he’s helped me with ways to improve the photos I take.

Picture one is of some tiny purple wildflowers that grow in our yard every year. Clicking on the photo will take you to my deviantART page for this photo. Picture one is of some tiny purple wildflowers that grow in our yard every year. Clicking on the…

Tunes with some hot tea this evening…

It’s been a little while since my last tea and tunes post. We were so busy yesterday, following the storm action in our area. And I’ve also been working on some art challenges and pushing myself creatively. And the weather turned cooler…finally. So tonight’s mug of tea will be warmly welcomed indeed! Check out these tunes! I have two 30 (+/-) minute tune mixes to share with you today. I found a new channel on YouTube. KeepMeChilled…check it out!
