Something Blue

Something Blue by Karen Gadient, 2015

We’re back from a lovely trip to Minnesota. We attended the wedding of David’s brother and got to see tons of family that we missed last Christmas. The wedding itself was fantastic and the food was super impressive (we’re vegan, so that’s saying a lot). The ceremony was outdoors and the rain held off one more day to give the couple a perfect memory. Just a wonderful time.

The artwork was something I made before I left, while playing with brushes, just for fun. I figured it would be good for the ol’ wedding saying about ‘something blue’―although our bride preferred purple. :)

Now to catch up on… oh, everything.

Hope your week is going great!

Underpinnings

Underpinnings by Karen Gadient, 2015

Pretty much a doodle gone crazy. Okay, many layers of doodles. Every now and then, I do some ‘art therapy’ to let my mind wander and relax, just for myself and not for prints―this is one of those. :)

Hape a great week!

TGIF: Relative Proximity

Relative Proximity by Karen Gadient, 2015

Another “FingerPaintingFriday” from me: painted with my fingers and nails using watercolor and a little bit of gouache. Lots of nail scraping here.

Enjoy your weekend, friends!

My #KaleidoSaturday images from last week and today.

First one was made from one of my old paintings. Second one was made from a garden photo, enhanced with some extra editing.

Have a lovely weekend!

Between the Skies

Between the Skies by Karen Gadient, 2015

It’s “FingerPaintingFriday” again! This one was created with pearlescent watercolor as the base with some regular watercolor on top. I used my fingernails as much as my fingertips, which I think lends a nice effect. To keep the lines clean, I wiped off the nail between scrapes―which also helped when finally scrubbing my nails clean when I was done!

Enjoy your weekend, friends. :)

Colorful View from the Water

Colorful View from the Water by Karen Gadient, 2015

While organizing my files, I discovered a wider version of a blue-and-white artwork I did last year and I remembered how much I liked it—so I reworked it with pretty much all the colors of the rainbow, partly from scanned watercolor. Figured I’d share the results here. Hope you’re having a great week!
