Making the old new again.

Like most artists, I have lots of past projects and miscellanous papers, etc. To keep ahead of the collection of stuff, I combine art that I’ve already made. I usually put them into art journals which is a good way to view what I’ve created. I’m working on an art journal right now and I’ve added two pages…making the old new again.

This art making is a combination of two drawings repurposed.

Do Trees Fall in Love?

The tangled tree has longingly reached her limbs to grab
hold of the spiring resident standing next to her.

It has taken years for her branches, off shoots and sprouting twigs
to entwine with her neighbor.

The neighboring tree is equally eager to share the embrace.
Though her limbs grow straight and are unable to reach
her adjacent companion, she is willing to take in arms
her wooded friend.

Do trees fall in love?

Lap Cat

Good Morning and Happy Monday!
Today’s lap cat is digitally enhanced in Photoshop. The original art is a watercolor.

Sit on my lap cat.
I need to tell you my woes.
Dear friend, I need you.

A Quilt of Texture

Good Morning – a composite of images make up my quilt of textures.  Printing on fabric with some added stitches would add another layer of interest. I’ll think about this option.

Layers of texture.
Color, lines, designs and patterns.
Surprises flourish.

Wish You Were Here!

Good Morning…Here are a couple of digital artworks from my archives. They were both hand drawn, then scanned and the patterns and color were added in Photoshop. I’m taking a trip for a few days, so I won’t be posting until Friday. Enjoy the week and see you in a few days.

Keeping in the theme of the Year of the Dog…Three Dogs on Vacation

How many times do you drive by a strip mall and wish the stores were ones you really wanted to shop in. Here is my list for “my personal strip mall shopping experience”.

Digital Sunrise

Good Morning friends…I’m back to Procreate experimenting with the layers function. It is digital collage. The tree was originally a watercolor, altered in Photoshop. The background is tissue paper also enhanced in Photoshop and then combined in Procreate with the added dots for more texture. Have a beautiful day! 🙂

Playing with Paper

Today’s offering is a combination of paper’s ready for the garbage bin. The background is torn paper glued together in no particular order. The woman is cut out from a catalog magazine. Once she was glued to the background, I painted her with several layers white gouache. When the paint was dry, I used Derwent watercolor pencil to redraw the woman and her outfit. All in all, a very fun art project.
