Creative Every Day - 14

This was the view outside my window last night. Sunsets are one of my favorite things - along with whiskers on kittens. Thanks for visiting.

CED - 13

Late again in posting my pictures. Tonight I had issues with my camera and loading the pictures. Anyway, I did a little more experimenting - love pink hair !

Creative Every Day - 12

Today I painted the body of the cloth and paperclay doll I began months ago. I wanted a raspberry color but could not get the mix right. I've done it a million times but for a small amount. So, pepto pink it is. Still, I like it and will make it work.

Posting every day really does motivate me - I am sure I am not alone in that feeling. Thanks to everyone who visits - this is fun.

Here is the doll painted black after the paperclay was applied.

Creative Every Day - 11

Hello - I have been doing alot of 'practice' paintings. Trying new colors and experimenting with faces and hair. Especially eyes. I am not looking for realistic. Just unique and fun. These are painted on cardboard salvaged from a box. It works very well and it is less expensive to experiment on salvaged cardboard than a nice canvas or board. Sometimes I gesso the cardboard first. Here's a tip - don't use the cardboard packed with the books from Amazon. It warps. (Unless you want that effect.)

Creative Every Day - 10

For Creative Every Day a photograph of the orange zinnia in my garden after the first frost of the season. I was very taken by the zinnias this year - to the very last. :-)

Did I miss day 10? It is after midnight. oops

Creative Every Day - November

I decided to join the Creative Every Day challenge hosted by Leah Piken Kolidas . The idea is to do something creative every day. You don't have to complete a huge project, just do something creative. The challenge began November 1 but I joined late. So this is my first contribution; a water color painting.
