My World

My World
10 x 10


Finally, I got back to it today and finished. I sort of wish I had painted the face a bit higher/bigger like the sketch. But I didn't and I'm OK with it.

And now for those who were inspired. Julia did a quick mind's eye sketch. Go see. And I may have already sent you to Linda's painting but now you can see how ours differ using the same sketch. I think it is great. Angie in Az was inspired by watching my face painting videos and this painting and she has an "in progress". I am thrilled when I have inspired anyone to make ART. And one more thing, thank you Marelle for the blog award. That thrills me too.


I didn't finish this project and I'm about pooped for today, so I will leave this on the table for you to

Expect,

Sharon

  3. LOVE the red.. and funny that it's the next color that will be hitting my canvas in progress! And I love all your pieces lined up on your table. The wonky houses are so great! And sooo much better than straight line, perfectly shaped little box houses!

  4. Still on my to-do list. I am loving your whack-a-do windows. I must make some like that on my next city scape....and maybe some of those fun party hat roofs.
    Thanks for the inspiration.

  10. I find it facinating how one thing one does catches with the artist and one wants to do more of that.
    it can build to such recognition.

    I also am attracted to red, however I paint blue and green a lot as it feels so good to me.
    I was amused to see you wear red glasses as last time I got glasses, before I met your blog and you I got red frames.

    So exciting to see your last few days of work and prhaps more than a few days as you have been busy and maybe a bit tired.

    This is so silly but I got to use that fly swatter with the nice patterns as a stencil. So then the book my woman is holding said something in Latin I didn't understand, so I changed the words
    to "Why Cats Sip Wine" so have to find a cat and wine glass for the painting.

    YOur work Fun and Lovely, you give a lot to us all.

  12. Every time I come here for a visit I find something new and enchanting. I know I have told you many times "This one is my favorite"
    Well :) you just keep making new favorites for me.
    You are inspiring...you inspired me to put my face painting on canvas...soon I will show a piece that was inspired by you and a couple of favorite quilters...a little tease...to keep me working.

  13. Your new series is just fantastic! And that last photo is amazing. Do you always create in multiples?

  14. They are all so good! I love how things developed from your rough sketch. I may have to try this. Sometimes I find it so helpful to try out ideas from other people. It seems to kick start me when I'm feeling blocked!

    It is such an inspiration.

  17. Your funky chateaus are to die for, and I adore that red background. (I can not believe how prolific you are, btw). The photo of the WIP have piqued my curiosity, especially the first canvas in the row, the yellow and pink one, of course!

  18. Oh Wow, thanks Sharon, for mentioning me and linking me on your post!...I love how your sketch turned out, the reds are so rich and the little houses and branchs, really I love your style...
    And the prolofic art you are creating...I wish I felt better as there is so much I could be doing with my art right now, your exercise in sketching has freed me of the block I have lately, but now my physical body just won't let me get on with it...xx

    Happy June, Mary
