As some of you that read this blog on a regular basis, I am trying to focus a little more time on my art. What better way to do that than to agree to take part in a group art show at a local gallery? So that is what I did. This October I will be part of a Halloween themed show. I need to get 5 pieces painted before then. Eek! A gallery show? It almost makes me feel like a real artist! Right now I am just in the sketching and ideas phase, but here are a couple quick sketches that I hope to turn into watercolor paintings later this month. Still thinking on the other three ideas. Shout out in the comments on what kind of Halloween paintings you would love to see. These are very rough sketches, I will take a lot more time for the actual paintings!
Though life and health keep getting in my way, I keep trying to make time for art in my life. Here are the latest watercolor paintings that I have completed. The one is of my twin nieces from a photo of them, in my own cutesy style of course. The other is from one of my favorite video games of all time, Little Nightmares. Both were so much fun and I am happy to say my sister in law loves the painting of her girls and is going to hang it in their room! And as an added bonus the girls actually recognized themselves in the painting! I hope to get some more painting time in this month, it is such a stress reliever for me and I certainly need that in my life.
So I started out this month wanting to focus more on art. I have not been able to keep up with my sketch schedule, but I am making more time to paint! I may not be painting every day, but I am getting some stuff done and it feels good! I will be getting a table at Fan Fest here in Albuquerque in August, so I am working on some fun paintings to sell there along with my books. Here are just a couple of things that I did for fun! Mega Man and Wonder Woman aren't quite finished, but they look cute to me!
I have really been neglecting my art lately, so this month I am participating in a sketch challenge, that way I at least sketch a little each day. I hope to get some painting in this month as well. Stay tuned for more art posts!
I am so happy to have finally be making some more time for art in my life. Here are a few pieces that I have been working on this week, as you can see I have been on an Egyptian mythology kick. I feel so much better when I have time for art, it just soothes my soul in a time when I certainly need some calming activities. As always, my art is for sale, so if you see something that you like send me a message! My prices are super reasonable! And keep an eye out for more mythological art coming soon! I do take requests and commissions!
So this year with the day job and the writing job taking up a lot of my time has meant that art has taken a backseat. Then recently I got an email from a charity that I support asking for t-shirt designs and I figured what the heck! So I entered this cute little design for Heifer International. I doubt I get picked, but hey at least I did some art and took a chance. You can learn more information and support Heifer International here: https://www.heifer.org/
Today I am still sharing some of my favorite webcomics from the past. Here is another from my Wedding Countdown, which was pretty accurate to my actual wedding planning. lol
Hello everyone, my name is Sheri and I am an author and artist. Many of you might already know me from my old blog, however I needed a fresh start and that means a new blog.
