#23 Wish/Wishful

#23 for September is Wish/Wishful.  As you all know, I am still looking for my yellow cottage. So that I can have a garden of veggies, herbs and flower. The cottage will be by the water and as you can see there are birds everywhere.  The picture at the bottom was clipped from an old calendar.

I used watercolor pencil, Pitt pens, and pan pastels.

Thank you Eva and Kristin for a place to play.. .. Paint Party Friday.  There are so many fine, creative artists to see at this website.

September Prompt: 20 Tiffany Glass

Tiffany was a doggie we once had. She looked like a Brittany Spaniol.  She went over Rainbow Bridge.  I have depicted #20. . .Tiffany was her name and the glass is a sheet of ice (winter) when she left us.

I used Pastels and Prismacolor pencils.

Thank you Kristin and Eva for Paint Party Friday. A place where artists can create and share each week. Be sure to visit all the wonderful artists.

September Promt #8 . . .Head Wear

I just joined the September Painting every day with prompts for each day.  I am way behind and will catch up.  I began with prompt #8 which is Head Wear.  I have a glitter crown, a Fastenator with a furry yarn design, Crochet hat and a hat with a feather and a bird on top.  I used Rainbow tape on 2 sides.  All four gals are different as are their hats.

I used pastels and Prismacolor pencils.  I had fun drawing the hats as at one time I wanted to be a fashion designer.

Thank you Kristin and Eva for a fun Paint Party Friday every week. Be sure and visit all the unique and creative artists to see and learn (videos and/or instructions are sometimes included).

Total Bull

I love the Bulls, the Bull Riders and all the Rodeo's. Fun to watch each rider stay on the bulls 8 seconds. That seems like the longest 8 seconds in history.

I used Prismacolor pencils and pastels to give him "The Look."  They are beautiful animals.

Thank you Eva and Kristin for a place to show off our art and help others to learn what and how to draw/paint on Paint Party Friday.

Never stand on the 'outside,' but always be outstanding.

Mixed Media Doll

I used Crochet thread, scraps, cotton, Pen, Pastels, and glue. She is ready for a party.  She is in a small journal. . .which is where I have been putting all my recent Art.  She is an experiment in faces.

 My very First Cloth Doll (she was a doll already made; I added the decor/hair etc).
 My first Bead Doll.
 My retired Grandma Tart cloth doll (from scratch).
Thank you Kristin and Eva . . as each week we artists have a known place to go to show our creativity, share our thoughts, and Keep the Art Faith. Paint Party Friday is a place where people can learn, share and be as creative as they want to be.
 PS: Not sure about a visit from Erika (hurricane) so, not sure how many days w/o power!!!!!

Cowgirls and boys

I love Bull-riding and Rodeos
 So I decided to draw a Cowgirl and Cowboy and a bull.  Pastels and Prismacolor. However, I once was a cowgirl when I worked for Illinois State University Auditorium. We had a Country singer on our stage. So we all dressed up.  It was a very fun evening.
Thank you Eva and Kristin for a wonderful Paint Party Friday for all of us creative artists. Please visit the other creative and varied artists.  Have Fun.
