Rock Painting

I used to teach art to kids and a favorite art making project was rock painting. I was living in the desert at the time and rocks were everywhere, and right outside the Art Room. With some acrylic paint, the kids had a blast.

Here are a couple of the ideas I came up with.

Expand your Horizons

One sure way to pick up your mood and see life on a brighter side…is make some art. My morning pick me up and warm up was originally painted and then altered in the Procreate app for the IPad.  Its going to be a good day.

Crocheted Hamburger

Twice a month I join friends at the Ventura Library and we either knit or crochet a variety of things. For several months we were making donuts. This month I took on the challenge of the hamburger…bun, lettuce, tomato, meat and cheese. I sewed a few beads on top to portray sesame seeds. I used cotton yarn because of the colors that were available. The 5 skeins were only $5.00, the price of a hamburger these days.

Hearts

HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY
These images were both enhanced in the Procreate app on my iPad. The sun was originally drawn on fabric with black pen. The second heart was a combination of cut out hearts and drawing. I hope everyone has a few chocolates today!

 

 

Laundry Day

Good Morning- I was going through some of my fabric illustrations and I came across “Laundry Day”. This is a scene we don’t see much of now. Hanging the laundry was one of my jobs as a kid. I always loved the smell of the clothes when they were dry. I added the lettering in Photoshop.

Laundry a chore? No…
Plaids, prints, whites, socks and blue jeans.
Family memories.
