I have been trying very hard to keep up with my Every Day in May art. The hardest part has not been to come up with ideas and do them, but to actually scan and post them. So over the last couple of weeks, a little pile of watercolors has been collecting on my desk waiting to be scanned. Today I finally scanned them (it took FOREVER), and they are in my Every Day in May flickr set- you can see them HERE. I didn’t actually do one every day. I missed several days, in fact, and I did use my Inspire Me Thursday art and Illustration Friday art. Overall, I’d say I actually sat down to make art 25 out of the 31 days, which I think is pretty good. One thing that I really liked about this challenge was that it got me thinking, on a daily basis, about making art. Whether or not I actually sat down and did it, I still had a headfull of ideas and a notebook full of doodles for potential art pieces. Thank you French toast Girl for this wonderful idea and challenge.
Here are a few of my watercolors that I thought I’d share. You’ll notice that many of my pieces in my Flickr set are wedding related. That’s because my cousin is getting married soon and I was asked to help make the invites (my second wedding invitation “job” this year) I made my sister’s wedding invites, thank you cards and rehearsal dinner invites, which I will post once she has sent them out in the mail.
