One week left...

I'm excited for the Drawing Lab Workshop to come to a close and sad too. Excited becasue it looks like I actually stuck with it and followed through on all the assignments. It has been hard some times, especially since I went back to work from Summer Break last week, and it's been HOT outside and not cooling down in the evenings. I just want to veg. I'm really quite proud that I'm down to the last week of the lab!
Here's some of the art that I have been doing--:) Yup I'm a bit more than proud of myself!  I'm not a painter but after drawing this flower in colored pencil following the lab in the Drawing Lab book I really wanted to take this another step. The black and white drawing page is from my sketchbook. One of the labs was to go on a Walkabout and draw whatever takes your fancy. Well, I really wanted to do the lab, but it was 94 degrees, so, I opted for a tour around my yard. Lots of fun stuff to draw. It was interesting to take time and really look at things that I have lived with for several years.


I'm also all signed up for Carla Sonheim's Art of Silliness 2 online workshop that will start in September. 30 days of fun, silly worksheets as assignments. 1 a day for 30 days for just $25. 

You remember worksheets--just like in 3rd grade but these will be way more fun! She will be giving prompts for creative projects, things to do in a journal or what ever, poems, riddles I am just so looking forward to this I can hardly stand it!

Hey get out and be creative! SB

i am continually amazed by the variety in your work! I love love love the flower (a poppy?) and the sketches from your yard - fantastic! i love your attention to detail (i tend to get too fussy) and how i always find more to look at in your art. the worksheets sound fun! i am trying not sign on for anything more but ...

:) now to peruse your bunny doodle some more ... i was traveling and had my journal and started doodling but quickly repeat my lines and shapes ... i need to expand my repetoire (or open up my imagination more!)

Hi Stephanie, I love looking at other people's drawing pages. All of the works are fun! I like the background and the poppy; nicely done! And, I really like the lady bug! Butterflies wonderful too...I like the stained-glass effect.

MOST creative! And, congrats for sticking with the drawing lab.

Stephanie,
Your work is amazing, and I am happy that you are proud of yourself because of what you have created. Look at it this way, we are flexible and diverse to go within any role we wish, so even though you say you are not a painter, deep inside you have expressed that so, through your ongoing artistic journey and for that you have moved through the energy of that role. Aside the role, you have expressed yourself authentically true to you at that moment through the challenge, and has made you be more observant in seeing. Well done, for all your beautiful work. I am happy for you.
Enjoy Carla's 'Art of Silliness' online workshop. That looks like so much fun!

Hi Stephanie,

This work is lovely. The flower is especially beautiful. I love the color of it and the emotion of it. Great work.

Well, you could have fooled me about not being a painter! Excellent flower! Thanks for stopping by my blog, it is nice to meet another monster maker! LOL

Wow! I love YOUR bugs, too! I colored mine last night and am pleased with one, but the rest not so much. Sigh. BUT I'm learning, so that's the important thing! I've signed up for the silliness workshop, too. Planning to do it with my 11 year-old daughter! :-) B.

The flower is delicate and lovely! Who says you have to go far for a walkabout--hehe! Cute bugs, too. Can hardly wait to see what you do for this next class. :)
