Thursday Art Date: Fine Arts - Sculpture... ♥ Goodnight Sweet Marlene ♥


Hello Friends,

Another rough week for us here. We had to say farewell to our sweet Marlene. I took our last selfie together and I will cherish her in my heart forever. I'm an emotional gal, and this is so overwhelming. Please leave me a comment!  And to those participating in the art date, please don't forget to add your link this week, it will really cheer me up to see what you've created. 

Thanks Friends! ♥ 

Love, 
Rain ♥

Thursday Art Date: Fine Art - Expressionism


Hello Friends! ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š

Welcome to Thursday's Art Date, today our theme is Fine Arts: Expressionism. I hope that this month of September's fine art themes will challenge you! It's certainly challenging me! Bugs Bunny decided that he wanted to pose for Edvard Munch's The Scream. Notice any fine details in the background? ๐Ÿ˜Š 


Expressionism depicts a feeling or emotion that the artist wants to convey or is feeling as he/she creates the artwork. I am going to do self-portraits for each theme in September, thanks to my friend TB for that idea! This week, I wanted to convey a very specific emotion in charcoal pencils on black art paper. What do you feel when you look at my piece?


I recorded myself drawing this in time-lapse, click on the photo or on this link to watch the video!


Speaking of videos, I also posted a real-time tutorial of my charcoal drawing of Mr. Spock. Click on the image or on this link to watch!


My spiritual channel is slowly gaining momentum! I'm so happy! Click on the photo or on this link to watch my latest video!


I had my second Covid shot on Monday and my gosh...the side effects were worse than the first time. I had a fever for 24 hours, dizziness, felt drugged up, nauseous and had a terrible headache. I prepare my Thursday posts on Wednesday afternoons usually and as I type this, I'm still feeling off. I hope to be better soon and I also hope I never have to go through this again, but I'm so happy it's done! I had the Pfizer shot btw. All I've been able to manage is looking out the window, watching the birds for the last 3 days.


I wanted to share these photos of a very beautiful sunrise - I've never seen a sky like this since I lived on Prince Edward Island, none of these photos were altered!! I was up so early, just after 5am and I had the dogs out with me. The coyotes were howling and the sun was rising...gosh it was beautiful! I found coyote poop just past my driveway this morning...they always leave their poop in the middle of roads and trails as a territorial gesture. The droppings are usually black...that's how you can tell. The ones I've seen lately are filled with blueberries! I'll have to keep an eye out from now on when I go out early in the mornings or late at night. (I hope you don't mind that I DIDN'T post the poop photo lol!)








Due to my loss of appetite, I don't have much to show for food this week! Since my oven crapped out on me months ago, I've been really missing my baked meals - especially pizza. I'm testing out a few recipes for toaster-oven pizza and I think I'm close to finding one that is really amazing!


This week's highlighted artist/blogger is Debra from She Who Seeks blog! Debra is a lovely lady, a very funny lady and her blog is always a treat to visit. She recently made my Fake Tiramisu recipe and it was such a fun post. Please visit her blog! ๐Ÿ’— 


LEAVE A COMMENT AND YOU MAY BE NEXT WEEK'S FEATURED ARTIST/BLOGGER!
