Day Sixty one – Apple Chain

Since tomorrow starts off the Holiday season and I’ll be creating lots of Christmas and Holiday images, I decided to go with something that wasn’t red & green! One of the first years that Doug and I were together I strung together popcorn and cranberries for our tree and made paper chains.  We didn’t have […]

Day Sixty – Pattern Play

Wikipedia says that a pattern comes from the French word patron (I thought that was a tequila) and is a type or theme of recurring events or objects that repeat in a predictable manner. I’ve always been interested in creating patterns and have experimented with them in my art. I’ve been fascinated about the idea […]

Day Fifty Nine – Which hue?

I love picking out paint colors.  There is something glorious about walking up to a wall of colors that exhilarates me – I get the same rush when I go to the art supply, fabric store, yarn shop or even Pottery Barn or Nordstom’s for that matter.  The possibilities abound and whether or not I’m […]

Day Fifty eight – Dash of this, some of that.

A dash of this and a hint of that  – and mix it all up.  Mixed media or collage are such a boring names for throwing it all together.  Maybe I’ll start calling mixed media pieces “everything but the kitchen sink” or “visual carnival” or perhaps more appropriately, “disparate madness” – ooh I like it! […]

Day Fifty seven – Tis the Season!

Today is the biggest shopping day of the year!  I’m not big on waiting in lines and fighting crowds so I stayed home today but I love the Holidays.  I love the decorations, the lights, the parties and the food.  I love to wrap up the presents and change out the colors I use each […]

Day Fifty six – Macy’s Day Parade

I am truly thankful for having such a wonderful husband!  Doug has been cooking up our dishes we’re taking to his Dad’s house shortly while I make my Art Apple – that’s love! My parents took us to the Macy’s Day Parade one year.  There are three things I clearly remember.  1.) My Dad lifting […]

Day Fifty five – Horn Of Plenty

Also known as a Cornucopia! The cornucopia is the symbol of food and abundance.  Wishing you all a Wonderful Thanksgiving – hope your tummies are abundantly full of food and your hearts overflowing. Until tomorrow. Jenna Day 55 was created with watercolor.

Day Fifty four – I’m taking off my Camo!

I have Ankylosing Spondylitis.  That is extremely difficult to say and proclaim to the world.  I have spent the better part of the last ten years hiding this part of who I am.  I don’t think I’m alone or unlike so many people dealing with any of these similar inflammatory autoimmune diseases (Rheumatoid Arthritis, Psoriatic […]

Day Fifty three – Paisley no. 2

Day Eighteen (October 18th) was my first Paisley, but I did it in black & white and since then I’ve really wanted to do a companion piece in really bright colors.  The pattern is almost identical but there are slight differences since I don’t digitally color my work – I create it all the old […]

Day Fifty two – Cuckoo… cuckoo

My husband’s Mom had a cuckoo clock. He tells the story about how she would wake up to the sound of the cuckoo chime once and and have to lay there for a half an hour to find out what time it was because anyone who has or grew up with a Cuckoo or Grandfather […]
