Wordless Wednesday

Wordless Wednesday



Next time I decide to do a 9″ x 12″ stipple, just shoot me.

Couple of years ago I drew a samovar, inspired by an assignment from the noah scalin book “365, a daily creativity journal”. I blogged about it on March 12, 2011. Never did post the results. Now I can’t remember if this is complete, but I like what I have so far. Again, thanks to Charlotte for bringing samovars into my life.


Dat Gumbo in progress

Dat Gumbo in progress

I’ve collected most of the elements for my digital rendition of gumbo art.

I received a kitchen bridal shower invitation that requested a recipe for the newlyweds. Since I love gumbo, and love Alton Brown’s foolproof oven-roux, I sent his Shrimp Gumbo recipe. Of course, I couldn’t just send it bare and ordinary. So after spicing it up with a little Word Art and Clip art, I decided to create an original digital art piece using Gumbo as the theme. I love to paint pictures of different vegetables, so this is a natural segue. I am working on the piece now, but since an artist blog needs art with each post, enjoy my artichoke painting. Artichokes are my favorite food. 



Figured out how to post on my own blog. So, in honor of my favorite season, Thundercloud Season, here is my tribute. Original watercolor on cold press d’Arches paper. I think it’s about the size of an index card.
