Illustration Friday - Trick or Treat

This is an atc I did a year or two ago. Since I titled it "Trick 'r Treat" it seems perfect to use here, especially since I'm feeling a bit too lazy to make a new painting to the topic.

Illustration Friday - Grow

"Grow" ink 2 1/2" x 3 1/2"

Watch the family grow. I finished this before the midnight hour, but it was late enough when I finished that I fell asleep in my chair instead of coming into the office to post it to Illustration Friday. Oh well.

Illustration Friday - Extremes

"Extreme Danger" colored pencil and ink on tempera 2 1/2" x 3 1/2"

By golly, I completed my illustration on time - well, at least before they changed the topic - this week. Good for me!

Illustration Friday - Open (2)

My idea for last week was not clever. Instead, it was literal. The jar of spaghetti sauce is open. But I cannot always be clever. Nor always on time. That's life.

"Ragu", 2 1/2" x 3 1/2", acrylics and ink.

Illustration Friday - Open

Well dang! I'm one week and five minutes late, but I was planning to try to get into IF anyhow - but Blogger won't upload my painting. "We are aware of the problem, and working on it," the note tells me. That's no help.

One of the bright spots of my down time came when Danny gave me a creative blogger award. I feel quite honored to receive it. :-) Thank you, Danny.

The rules say I'm to pass the reward along to 6 other deserving people who might appreciate the award and pass it on. Here's my list:

1. Princess LadyBug
2. Forever Young
3. Faeorain
4. Kelli
5. Jamie
6. Cindy

All these folks add richness to my life with their blogs.

Catching Up

I haven't posted for a while, mainly because I've been sick. Being sick, I didn't have much energy, and fell behind on Illustration Friday too. Thankfully, now I feel much better, and have been catching up.

One of the Illustration Friday topics that I missed was "Wedding". Now I've got an entry - about 3 weeks late - for that.

This was an ATC (2 1/2" X 3 1/2") done in acrylics and ink. Its title is "Wedding".

Another topic that I missed was "Blues". I did a kind of doodle for that.

This also was an ATC (2 1/2" X 3 1/2") done in acrylics and ink. Its title is "Spoons".

I'm going to skip the juggle topic.
