I missed it yesterday!!!
For today, I just finished this… I found the instructions on Pinterest. It said to use old watercolor paintings but I used bits and pieces of what I had…. Not sure I’m done with this one… It might make a reappearance later.
I’m starting to get really into carving stamps. I made two this morning – one for the center of a flower and one for the petals. I decided to try these out on cards. Turned out pretty good, if I do say so myself! 🙂
Happy Day 4!!
I had no time/energy to work on anything today so I thought I would share this painting I did last month for Day 3!!
Reminds me of a quote: “Be yourself. Just be yourself about your art and everything else.”
Fly your flag… BE YOURSELF.
I have a lot of half-finished paintings and drawings and other things in my art room. I don’t mean to abandon them. If I don’t finish them quickly I’ll either get distracted or lose interest or something else will happen (like getting sick). Then I won’t get back in there for a day or two and by the time I manage to visit my art room again I’m ready to work on something else.
Happens all the time.
So thinking about Art Every Day Month, I wanted to look around for some new techniques to try. New things that were not too involved. Quick art projects that could be finished in a day or so. With materials I already had.

Happy ‘Art Every Day Month’ 2014!!!!
I’ve participated for a few years now. Last year, I think I made it all month. I think.
I don’t feel like this is something that I HAVE to do but something that I want to do. So no guilt if I miss a day. I can just pick it up the next day and go forward. The whole purpose for me is to get into the habit of creativity and grow as a result of my efforts.
What an awesome idea this project is… plus I get to see all this awesome artwork by others who participate!
I’m sorta into printmaking over the last few days:
I carved a quarter repeat stamp (learning a lot from books… and Pinterest.. and Google)
And one more…
I cannot believe November is almost gone. I mean, its been 27 days since Art Every Day Month! began. Time flies when you are having fun. The last several months have been stressful for me so I’ve had to rely on ‘previously created’ artwork. Thats ok. Cause my goal has been to do something for me , for fun , for a whole month. I’m almost done.
But today I want to share some photos of a painting I’ve been working on this past week. It’s looks like a kindergartener did it. I don’t care. I like it and it was/is fun.
Have an absolutely awesome day!!!
