Art Abandonment

I've also joined a group on FB called Art Abandonment!  We make art, put it with a note and leave it for someone to find!  I've done this before but not in an organized way!  So on Veterans Day, Ron and I went to Red Lobster and I abandoned this piece of art at the table!  Hope someone enjoys it!

Cactus Monday

And here's the sketch for this week's Cactus Monday!  She was fun!

The White Feather

After that crazy sketch a pal told me a wonderful story!  And at the end she told me one of the meanings of the white feather!  So I calmed down and drew this!  I feel like I'm getting back in the groove.  This piece touched a lot of people!

Quick and Fast Gesture Sketching

Sometimes I want to draw everything and nothing!  So I just scribble out whatever I see in front of me to get out the energy!  It's crazy, but I feel better after!  I think after inktober I was feeling a little like this guy looks!

Tea bag art

Here's another tea bag piece to add to my greeting cards.  This one I was inspired by the colors of fall!

Throw Back Thursday for Artists

On FB I've been doing Throw Back Thursday for Artists!  It's where we post some work we did long ago!  Here's a couple of illustrations I did for art school in 1992, and a sketch for a painting!

Mandala #32

Not sure if anyone remembers but I'm doing a 100 Mandala challenge!  Here is #32 inspired by a friend who likes the colors of the banana poka plant!

Cactus Monday!

I also signed up with a FB group called Cactus Monday!  We get together and sketch and/or share photos of the beautiful cacti we see!  A pal posted a pic of one that made me think of the minion I just had to do this sketch as my first sketch!  So nice to do something fun after inktober!  ♥

The rest of the inktober sketches

Well, inktober sure was fun, but I'm glad it's over and I can use some other tools and sketch some different subjects!  No more spooky things for awhile!  Whoot!  So here's the rest of the inktober sketches!  I have really been busy!  LOL!  ♥

October is InkTober!

This month is InkTober!  It was started by Jake Parker when he saw a pen his friend had and wanted to borrow it to learn how to use it.  He found at the end of the month, he also drew better!  So now every year people all over the world get involved with inktober!  The only rule is to use ink!  This is my first time taking the challenge!  Well today is day 10 and I thought I'd share what I've done so far!  I'm using Halloween as my theme.  I drew a template that I will use for each day and then put an object in it!  It has been fun so far, but today I really needed to add some color!  Still all ink tho'!  Hope you like them!  #inktober

Building up my health and my card supply!

Well, like I thought, I wouldn't be posting much to my blog!  Between trying to stay healthy and actually doing my art, it seems like I just don't have the energy!
Got a weather headache today, so just doing some tea stained mandala pieces for cards.  Here's the latest!  Ron said when I'm all done, he'll glue all the parts together for me!  Love that man!

Long time no hear...and probably gonna be longer!

It's been so long since I've blogged, I thought I better catch it up!  Since my illness has slowed me down considerably, I've had to make choices to use my energy in the best ways for my health.  So I am mostly just playing in my studio creating art!  Taking some art classes too, and have a FB page for those.  I'm Minerva out in the enchanted forest of FB!  So I probably will not be spending a lot of time blogging.  I appreciate those of you who have followed me all these years!  It's been wonderful making new friends.  So until I can feel well enough to blog again, here's some of what I've been up to lately!  Fair warning, it's a lot!  Hope you all are well and happy!  Take care, my friends!
