Day 13 Inktober

I have been off work sick for 2 days with strep throat so I haven't posted any of my Inktober pieces... even though I was home I didn't feel up to painting. I had done these small pieces a few days ago because they were quick and fun,  so am counting them. Actually I gave them all away on secret giveaways on instagram. That was fun too. So if you ever want some tiny art free you should follow me on instagram.... I am there as @fallingladies and as @andreadeanethompson. 2 accounts... 1 for most of my art which is colorful, and the other for nature sketches and cat and food pics.
Anyway, here's the rainbow of ACEO's (2 1/2x3 1/2)

Actually the yellow one hasn't been given away yet but will be around 7:15 am today, (soon).... first person to comment "yellow" below the pic on instagram once it is posted will take it.... so you may still have time if you are an early bird. And speaking of birds... that is what is in line for today's Inky piece.... stay tuned. 

Stay healthy my friends!

and as an afterthought i made them into a fabric on spoon flower with them all combined.....
Kinda like it!

Day 9 a day late

Just practicing with the dip pen and this story came to be. Not sure what to do with it.

Day 7 Inktober

Using a dip pen for the first time... with the same noodler's ink: 'heart of darkness'. I bought this pen set (isn't it great!) a year, or rather two years ago on vacation and I am finally daring to try it out. I love the way it looks sitting on my art desk. It actually makes a more even line than I expected. I had to try to make the varying thickness and splatters!

Day 6 Inktober and 6 good things

1. I love the moment when the ink hits the watercolor and it blooms into the color.... you can see a video of it here

2. Got to spend some time with my Mom yesterday... beautifully sunny and hiking in the woods. 

3. Inukshuks

4. The beginning of an installation...

5. The movie, 'About time' starring Domnhall Gleeson and Rachel McAdams. Just watched it and loved it, every actor was perfect in it. Makes you feel good!
Spoiler alert for my Mom's sake: there's a happy ending so you don't need to worry that something truly terrible is about to happen like I did. A few sad things but nothing disturbingly bad in the end. 

6. Cuteness abounds in the world...

Day 4 Inktober

Today I went to a place where #inktober2017 , #scribblepicnic, and the last day of my #30daychallenge combined! The theme at scribblepicnic this week is "blanket" so I covered my cabin with a blanket of snow and painted with ink. (Noodlers ink) I loved the way it bleeds and blooms as you go, even more than watercolor!
