Painting and Pokémon 

I am trying to get back into creative mode, my biggest problem is finishing what I start.  Well I actually finished one!  I painted this simple canvas board for me step-son’s bedroom.  He is really into Pokémon.  It turned out better than expected considering that I have not really painted anything in so long.


Here are some work in progress shots too…

Painting Easter Eggs with the kids

  

Yes even the furry child, it seems no one in this house can do arts and crafts without his ‘help’ lol. Last year the kids did a dozen small fake eggs.  This we consolidated but going with on big egg each, from Walmart.  

Sadly I am starting to realize that my step kids just aren’t that in to art.  They were excited to do it but spent all of maybe 10 minutes on the project with no real plan or purpose to their craft.

Awe well it was fun anyway.  

I did however spend so much time trying to keep the cat out of everything that I haven’t even painted mine yet.  Mine was the white one.

   

         

Finding inspiration 

in all the wrong places?  It was recently inspired by this artwork that I saw hanging in the bathroom at a bar. Lol.  I think I can tweak it, making it my own and use it as wall art in my bedroom.



I am however trying to create it using things that I already have, like paint, paper and cardstock.  So far this is all I have to show for my efforts. 



Where is the strangest place that you have seen something the you like, wanted to recreate or just admired?

I also like this one as well but as an artist I have a hard time buying art for my walls,  I SHOULD be able to create my own.



My new apprentice 



Meet Jynx, not so helpful helper.  Every time I head down into my craft area he is right behind me.  He will start out on the extra stool down there and slowly inch his way onto my lap or the table, where he steals my stuff or sticks his paws in everything.  Not to even mention the long hairs!

It’s a good thing that he is cute but he sure puts the ‘bad kitty’ into bad kitty creative. Lol

If I run him off enough he will find a place nearby to lay and pout for awhile before trying again.  I have tried to include him on some projects but he has little to no interst in following directions.  Such a little art Diva.
