A Bit of Art In Between...

Either I ate something that didn't agree with me or I have a stomach bug because since last Tuesday I've been feeling terrible. For a couple of days I spent most of my time in bed but through it all I've managed to work on a couple of things. I work for a few minutes and then rest.

The first thing I did was a Jodi Ohl inspired painting of little houses...


It's okay but I feel it's lacking something, and it's too child-like.

Next I worked in one of my art journals...


Obviously this was inspired by aboriginal dot paintings.

Juanita and Jeanette were supposed to come over to have a play date today but I cancelled because I don't want to spread this if it is a flu bug. We only have a couple of more weeks to have play dates and then my class will begin.

Now I'm off to read for a while and maybe take a nap!

  4. No, no, no they're not too childish, I love your houses. I remember the feeling though, from when I did something childish.The pleasant thing about it is that one can look at it and daydream a complete story.
    Love the dot-painting too, boy is that relaxing to do. I hope you'll start feeling better very soon!

  6. I disagree with your assessment of the houses. They are quite complete and very sophisticated. I like your style and do rest up and feel better.
