Inspired By

So this month at Sketchbook Challenge the theme is Unfurled. When I first read it, all that came to mind were flags unfurling. I couldn't get my mind unwrapped from that idea. Then it hit me -- FLOWERS.

So here are my latest in my flower series. They are sort of "tulipy."

When I finished the three, I was then inspired to start a line of flower fairies based on those flowers. Here is the first one.

She is just a trial. There are things I don't like, but that is my self critic. It just means that I have to make more opportunities to make her better.

When you work on a project, whether it be art, or written, or whatever, how long do fiddle with it? When do you leave well enough alone?

Today's Music Note: You are listening to DANCE OF THE SUGARPLUM FAIRY from the Nutcracker. The Nutcracker is my all time favorite ballet. I loved when band directors would chose selections from The Nutcracker's score. It is usually associated with the Christmas season, but I couldn't find many other songs that were about fairies or flowers that had any significance. I have closed today's selection of music with a good ole Foundations' tune and threw Seal for good measure. Enjoy!)

Wonderful pictures. Unfortunately I can not paint.

Oh wow Annemarie, your flowers are gorgeous! I love the fantasy-shapes and the bright colours! Fabulous! How long do I spend on a 'topic'? It depends... when I get tired of it, I stop. But I can always get back to it - and sometimes do...

It is lovely to see you enjoying drawing and painting again.

I really like these!
I just work on whatever I'm making until it feels right, unless I really really can't come up with a way of making it right even though I've left it alone for a while and came back to it.
