Massive Doodle(s)wash Catch-up

I think the downward spiral was an event I can see and feel happening but I couldn’t do anything to just NOT let it happen. I have massive awards to catch-up on and hope to start on those tomorrow. I started my catch-up yesterday during a break at the festival and finished throughout the day today between chores and taking care of the family.

The Pagan Pride festival was a learning experience. My husband has had many questions and most I could answer but others he needed a more mature guidance than what I have. Then he asked, ‘How come you don’t practice at home?’ It broke my heart to answer because I knew that he would feel guilty and would try to overcompensate to make up his error in judging but I didn’t need or want that.

Doodle(s)wash: 7/13

Super productive today. The writing for my creative writing course, Fenton Friday, work at my day job, dinner is done, now my doodle(s)wash.


 

Doodle(s)wash: 7/12

It’s late, I’m tired and the chores of the house are just screaming at me to get done the ‘mom’ way and not the ‘kids’ way. I didn’t have to say anything just look at my little army of butt heads (Including my husband-and yes I can say that because they are!) I created and they scattered to the four corners of the house looking for something to do. I had just cooked dinner after a long day at work. Everyone didn’t mind eating it but didn’t want to clean up. SO I did, along with a million other little things that teenage eyes overlook on purpose. I’m exhausted and will not be able to do any of my classwork tonight but the painting and doodling helped calm my nerves a great deal. I apologize in advance. I don’t have LED daylight bulbs because my migraines are more prone to making an appearance when they are shining.


Prompt: Woodland Creatures

My raccoon ended up looking like a deranged cat.
This little guy surprised me with the cuteness!

 

Doodle(s)wash: 7/10-7/11

It seems like all I’m doing lately is catching up. I’m getting caught up (somewhat) in my writing lectures and now I’m caught up on my doodle(s)washes. I wanted to keep in more of a loose doodle aesthetic rather than worrying about following the lines. Hope I pulled it off. (HEY! WP is letting me do a gallery!

Doodle(s)wash: 7/8

This was a frustrating prompt. Not that the actual prompt was the issue but the process. I actually threw one painting away and I was only halfway done with it. I’m trying to learn not rely too much on my pens and focus more on painting details.


Prompt Word: Flying things

A simple one line and dots kite for the doodle portion.
I was working on lightning bugs for flying things. I wish I could make it look more majestic.

Doodle(s)wash: 7/6

Trying not to fall behind but the early busy mornings are kicking my butt. Today’s prompt brought back some happy memories and before I knew it I had everything completed. Side note-creating the doodles with one line has given me a style that I’ve come to really enjoy. The watercolor, I’m still needing to work on. Maybe some watercolor courses? Oh, shoot! I need to sign into my writing course. I’m going to take a nap after this instead.


Prompt: Simple Things

My father had a hammock when I was growing up. I would curl up with him and we both would sway from side to side soaking up the sun. That was one of the simple things I took for granted.
What could be more simple than a peanut butter and jelly sandwich? My father made the best. I use the same ingredients that he did (including the onions) but they never taste like his used to.

 

Doodle(s)wash: June to July and the Damn Humidity!

I know, I am SUPER behind on a lot of stuff. Catching up slowly is what I do best. I only wish that I could control the humidity. The paper buckled and soaked up all the water. Even when working quickly it was difficult. Maybe I should take up using markers instead? And SUPER irritated with WP not creating my gallery of images. GRR.


6/30 Party
When I think of party the image of balloons on mailboxes came to mind.
7/1 Sunny Days
I tried a new concept. It didn’t turn out like I wanted but happy with my attempt.
7/2 Delicious Foods
I think being on a diet everything looks delicious. Pie it is.

 

Doodle(s)wash: Belated 6/28

What is wrong with me? Last night I was exhausted but I’ve been feeling pretty good. I called my doctor, worried that something might be seriously wrong. She asked me general questions then asked how it was going to work. After spilling everything out she explained that stress can cause exhaustion. Try to practice my exercises and do something relaxing. You know what I did? I fell asleep. Waking up a few hours later and went to be and slept until this morning. I didn’t want to fall behind because I have a busy day ahead of me not to mention a busy weekend of writing. Oh, and planning Fenton and haunted road trip in October.


Prompt Word: Popsicle

Doodle(s)wash: 6/27

I came home and decided that I wasn’t going to think about work and planned to get some writing, class work, and painting done. Soon, my house became the hangout house for the neighborhood kids. They went to the park with my daughter to keep an eye on her brother. This is a ‘me issue’ and worrying about my son after watching the news today. I’m at the point where I should probably not watch the news anymore.

I was taking a picture of the painting and doodle when I got a phone call asking if the friends can have dinner with us. There go my plans for having leftovers. With a few clicks on the keyboard, the pizza arrived in the nick of time to feed the hungry brood in my yard. Hearing my son laugh and talk with his friends was what I needed after a bad day.

Oh, my daughter is infatuated with today’s prompt and has confiscated the painting. Side note: It’s very difficult painting when it’s humid. The masking fluid doesn’t peel from the paper neatly and the paint took forever to dry in some places or soaked up more water than expected.


Prompt Word: Pineapple
