Flashback Friday

As western Louisiana and more are continuing the clean up from Hurricane Laura I thought I’d share this journal spread from Friday, July 31st when Isaias was heading for the Carolina coast. Having lived briefly in Florida I’m still attuned to keeping tabs on all the Tropical Storms and Hurricanes. Every one of these storms carries the possibility of devastating consequences. My heart goes out to everyone still dealing with the aftermath.

As an aside, I’m quite fond of the triadic color scheme I’ve got here… Red Orange, Yellow Green, and Blue Violet.

… It Must Be Inktober

Yes, it’s October and that means Inktober!

This is the fourth year I’m participating but this year I’m not going to use any of the official prompts or any Sktchy photos as I did last year.

What I will be doing is drawing various produce using assorted waterproof and water-soluble inks in a Strathmore 500 Mixed Media Journal with pre-painted spreads. A friend in one of my art-related Facebook groups suggested this as a daily challenge… not necessarily for Inktober. She jokingly named it #dailypotato and, even though our scope of subjects has already expanded beyond potatoes, the name has stuck.

Day 01

Thinking of joining Inktober and still looking for this year’s prompts? You can find the list at the link above … or…..

Remember… I’m not using the prompts. Peppers are not poisonous!
