Week 6 (last week) of Summer of Color 2014

I was running out of time but absolutely wanted to finish.  So I doodled this heart to say that I LOVE the SOC challenge.

Thank you so much Kristin (here) for all the time you have put into this - we all had so much fun with the colors and loved seeing what everyone else had done.  Sorry about the fuzzy photo.

I just hope this doesn't mean that summer is over (LOL).  Thanks for stopping by and have a weekend full of color!

In the jungle, the mighty jungle-WIP

I am late posting today - but finally had a chance to take a picture of my baby rhino.  Stepping way out of my comfort zone - but loving the process - I am using decidedly non rhino colors on this cute little guy.  When I was looking for pictures of rhinos, I discovered how extensive rhino poaching is.  Some of the pictures just broke my heart.  So I'm thinking that I might do a series of endangered animals.

This baby is far from done - but I am starting to see something happening and I am liking it.  I have always wanted to be more free with color, but this is the first time I have attempted anything like this.

Linking up to Paint Party Friday - thank you Eva and Kristin!  Go take a look at all the art work - it's inspiring.  Have a blessed and creative weekend.

SOC 2014 Week 5

Summer of Color 2014 is almost at a close.  I love this challenge - it forces you to use colors you might not usually.  This week the color palette is red, royal blue and a touch of light blue.  This is such a fun challenge - it doesn't take a long time each week and you have to use color combos that you might not regularly use.

I had sketched this Laughing gull (the only type I've seen here in South Carolina) and decided he needed a makeover.  Those grays and browns are so drab. Some tattoos and he is a new gull!  The funky arrow is due to needing to cover up some really nasty lettering I had there originally.  I love gulls - they are not majestic birds but they are quintessential beach birds and I love the beach.  So - here he is - thanks for visiting - have a blessed and creative day.  And make sure to check out the other entries on Kristin's blog here
