Yes, that’s right, the drawing now has an official name. “Strange Magic” after the Electric Light Orchestra (ELO) song of the same name, which I came upon by “accident” yesterday. It was a discovery because, although I’ve heard the song many times before, I never listened very closely to the words. Here are some ofContinue reading “Strange Magic: Work in Progress”
Yesterday I posted one of my more “philosophical” posts. Then I changed my mind a few hours later and took it offline. The truth is, my ideas about my life and where it’s headed are changing that quickly. The truth is that, if you’ve read some of my older posts, there is probably a lotContinue reading “New Drawing: Work-In-Progress”
In April and May 2020, I created a series of daily “Happy Drawings.” The you-know-what current situation had just started a couple months before and I had decided to try Facebook again. These drawings were among the first things I posted there upon my return. My intention was to hopefully add a little happiness toContinue reading “The Blue Guy Returns: Sneak Preview”
Shortly after starting today’s drawing, it started to feel all “up in the air” or ungrounded. So I did my best to give it groundedness, first by adding the flower pots, and then all the things connected to the baseline near the bottom – mountains, hearts with tethers, etc. To me, it still has aContinue reading “dobedobedobedo”
No big written post today – am wanting a break and/or to take time for some other things. Thanks for understanding. ♥ Monica
a. I choose Love. b. I choose Joy. c. I choose Life. d. All of the Above. Mostly taking a break from the blog today to focus on other things. Hope everyone has a fantastic day! Monica
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.
Sixteen more daily flower drawings, which brings me to the very beginning of February. Today I drew number 219.
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”
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”
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”
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”
