A Long Haul For A Simple Story

Bear, Cloud and Book, take 2. Those were the visual-artists-word-prompts from last week. I might even need a third and fourth week to make this really and truly worth posting. I like the idea of putting random words together to get ideas for all kinds of artistic endeavors. However, I think I need to redesign my output. Or, if others would participate, then I’d have slightly less burden on myself to produce every week. Posting twice a month might be more than enough…we’ll see. Read on.

I’ll try a few ideas and see where it goes. In the end I don’t think the bees are acceptable what my daughter needs, but now I’m getting a better handle on how to draw them.

Grab Bag of Words for Artist Prompts

Ok, so I’ve made it to week eight, amazing! For this week I picked Teapot, Lavender, and Wooden Spoons out of my grab bag of artist word prompts. I was not excited by these words. They seemed so mundane and obvious. However, once again, as I got started, I got into a roll and couldn’t stop. It must be instant gratification, nothing to complex, just mindless easy drawing. Here are some simple efforts, quick, down and dirty.
