A different take on a CIGGIE?

Hello on this start of a new week in OCTOBER !!!!!! OCTOBER !   We have been lucky and have not had to bring in the plants from outside yet.   According to our weatherman we will have at least until the end of the week.  We haven't seen the weather for past then but the plants are loving it.  We will then snip snip and make the plants look like they have had a "Little Boy Regular" hair cut.  Not the prettiest cut in the world but manageable in the sun room.   

I am so enjoying the class with Paint Mojo with Tracy Verdugo.   I can't think of what else I have painted, well except on my giant canvas.  Remember it is coming when finished.   I did use the Acrylic Inks for this pretty guy.   Now I do wish I had done it on Watercolor paper but didn't.  I only use the mixed media paper.  It does ok but kind of curls and twirls like a dancer I guess.   Who knows maybe it is happy that it is getting to play with the big boys---the canvases and watercolor papers.  

When I finished this little gem it reminded me of some of the Mexico art we have seen.  I love it and it is so cheerful.   Maybe that is why this little guy came to the party wearing this set of wings.   Who knows?

I have several other little class doings to do for this week, but you know sometimes I stray a little.  
I was thinking this might made an awesome piece of CQ with this as the center?   Just an out of the box thought there.    One sweet friend told me that I think out of the box and I jokingly replied that when we grew up we didn't even know there were sides in a box.   You know me and my sense of humor. 
There you go what I have been up to in the art world this week.  Thanks for stopping by and seeing what is going on in my world.


  1. Those wings are gorgeous with the color combination to inspire yourself for a quilt, it would be awesome!. I can just see it! Thanks for your B'day song...I heard it sweet lady, lol!

  2. I think you should definitely use this as center ciggie!!
