A Zebra and a Deer Walk onto a Blog....

I've been trying to stick to a weekly schedule now that I'm trying to fit more on my plate.  Tuesdays have become my painting day and Wednesday my blogging day.

I worked 2 hours on a piece last night that I disliked so much, I gessoed over it and made a new background.  Usually I can salvage a piece, but this one just wasn't heading where I wanted it to go.
It was getting very late, but I didn't want to be empty-handed for blogging today :)

So I pulled out those 2 mini canvas panels I had left and looked for some animals to paint.

A zebra trotted over first.
This one is called "Polka Dots and Stripes"

 
I've never painted a zebra before.  It was fun!  Especially since there was no way to make a mistake on the stripes.  They are not symmetrical or perfect.  Great for me....my paintings never are :)
 
 
Then there is this guy....
 
 
"Love You Deerly"
Hee hee....I just love stupid humor like that ;)
 
 
They are available in Ye Olde Etsy Shoppe if you have a shilling to spend :)
 
Also, the wonderful Sharon at Plumrose Lane who designed my Blog Badge for me, is having to change where her work is stored.  I have new code now for my badge, so if you have been a Sweetie that has me on your sidebar, I kindly (and gratefully) ask you to delete the old and copy the new....now on my sidebar to the right.
Thank you so much for your support and friendship...and to Sharon for making a beautiful Badge!
 
Off I go to make dinner now....I've had chicken in the fridge for 3 days.  Probably cuz I have no designated "cooking" day and frequently choose to go out instead....haha!
 
Love you all, dearly,
Cam

Painting those zebra stripes would be a challenge for me and you did it so well.

Every day is a destined cooking day at our house. Schedules are good aren't they? I am more productive with a schedule.

I love your animal paintings. They have so much personality. It can be frustrating when you work on something and it doesn't work, but way to go. You pressed on and painted two wonderful paintings.

Gorgeous beasties.

More beautiful art! I love seeing the animals you are painting! I like your new jewelry and sea glass creations in your shop, too! You've been busy!

I think your paintings are perfect. They show your versatility and dreaming mind, and bring a smile to my face. I love the rainbow(ish) colors of the zebra, and the blush on the deer's face is adorable ;-)
