Flower A Day #169 thru #184

Sixteen more flowers, which brings me to about mid-February, or flower number 184 – just beyond the half point for the entire year. I have been keeping up with them since then – just did 225 (assuming I didn’t count wrong) today.

A Flower A Day Challenge: 120 Day Milestone

Above, thirty more of my flower-a-day-for-a-year challenge drawings are pictured. (I’m up to #170 with the actual drawings.) Some of these have already been transformed into designs. Perhaps I’ll go more into the process in future posts; for now, here are two of the completed designs – maybe you can guess which flowers have beenContinue reading “A Flower A Day Challenge: 120 Day Milestone”

A Flower A Day Challenge: 90 Day Milestone

In case anyone is curious, I have been keeping up fairly well with my flower-a-day drawings, which I started last August. The intention is to continue for an entire year; today I drew flower #149. I have not, however, done as well at posting timely progress updates. Hence, above flowers #61 through 90 are shown.Continue reading “A Flower A Day Challenge: 90 Day Milestone”

A Flower A Day Challenge: 60 Day Milestone

I recently completed the 60th flower of my flower-a-day-for-a-year challenge, and here are 31 through 60! These seem improved (in my eyes at least) from the first 30, somehow more creative and inventive while still maintaining the essence of “flower.” Yay! I still noticed a lot of not-very-crisp and clean line work while uploading these,Continue reading “A Flower A Day Challenge: 60 Day Milestone”

I’m making Happy Drawings – day 28

Today is the final day for my Happy Drawings, at least for now. My intention was to make them until the end of our “lockdown” and my area is scheduled to reopen (at least partially) tomorrow. Also, it seems fitting to end it on my birthday, which happens to be today. I am excited toContinue reading “I’m making Happy Drawings – day 28”

I’m making Happy Drawings – day 27

Cupcake Love. This one was particularly fun to draw! I’m making and uploading one happy drawing a day, at least until the end of the the stay-at-home order. Would anyone care to join me? Thanks for Stopping by! Monica

I’m making Happy Drawings – day 26

“Row, row, row your boat, gently down the stream. Merrily, merrily, merrily merrily, life is but a dream.” (old nursery rhyme/children’s song. I tried to figure out who to credit with no luck.) Have you ever thought about those words as an adult? I’m making and uploading one happy drawing a day, at least untilContinue reading “I’m making Happy Drawings – day 26”

I’m making Happy Drawings – day 25

Fancy ADK Little Houses. Inspired by the little cabins-for-rent sometimes seen in this area (and other places, too). I’m making and uploading one happy drawing a day, at least until the end of the the stay-at-home order. Would anyone care to join me? Thanks for Stopping by! Monica

I’m making Happy Drawings – day 24

Floral-style shapes. I’m making and uploading one happy drawing a day, at least until the end of the the stay-at-home order. Would anyone care to join me? Thanks for Stopping by! Monica

I’m making Happy Drawings – day 23

Every-which-way tulips (and a bird). Those light green background shapes took a while! (I thought this was going to be a simple looking one, but I think it turned out kind of fun.) I’m making and uploading one happy drawing a day, at least until the end of the the stay-at-home order. Would anyone careContinue reading “I’m making Happy Drawings – day 23”
