Where does the time go....

Haven't been able to keep up with challenges or tangling on a regular basis. No art class oh what is a girl to do..LOL

So today and yesterday...that all changed I finally got some things done..
I will be showcasing my cards at a fall festival at a church in our area. So I have been trying to make some Christmas cards as well as regular alphabet cards...Also will be reopening my Etsy shop next week ...
Alas no painting, played around with distress inks..but that is definitely a work in progress..not quite getting it yet. Also still working with watercolor backgrounds and that is also a work in progress....Yet progress and practice is what makes things better..I am not even going to say perfect for I am far from that LOL

So in preparation for next trip in about a week I am taking the time to post some of my more recent art work...
Please be gentle in your comments....thanks

Playing with pencils, colored and watercolors...


Some of my latest Alphabet greeting cards..


My practice Christmas Greeting cards(very much works in progress)




Practice in watercolors..


And last but not least I did also do some coloring 

 I haven't been completely out of action...sketching, practicing and reading all have helped while I have not posted...I am going away again soon so it may be a while before my next post..So in the meantime be blessed and keep making art...

Far too long...

And summer is about to end..UGH!! Although I am sure I will find plenty of inspiration in the upcoming fall and its wonderful tapestry of colors.

That being said small update on my current painting
Not real pleased at the moment...hopefully it will come together for me soon

Was able to make a couple of tiles while on vacation for my wonderful hosts, Patrick and Drew. They tried to show us around Miami in 3 days...LOL It was fun!! Thank you!
I kinda just practiced while away...
Then coming back I wanted to get back in swing of things...so I did a couple of challenges..weekly, the diva and Square one Zentangle challenges

The diva challenge

Square one

Weekly Video...

Guess some of my practicing paid of..
I am also enamored of watercolor lately and am learning how to utilize them as well..
Yeah I know I need practice but here is a start LOL
And I am putting them out here which is very scary....







And lastly still working on my alphabet greeting cards..I think out of all I do, these give me the greatest pleasure. Each one different each one a masterpiece,,well at least in my mind. 
Next weekend I will be selling them at one of our local flea markets..and will be looking for other places as well. 
Here are some from my latest selection:






An eventful month, and looking forward to more challenges, more experimenting and more art!!!
Be blessed





Inktober 9-16

This is quite an exercise but I am loving every minute..of course some are better than others. Yet the fact that I am doing a drawing a day...
