TGIF: Watercolor Creature

Watercolor Creature by Karen Gadient, 2015

Belated “FingerPaintingFriday”!

I got so involved with upgrading my operating system yesterday that I forgot to post this. I use a mac, and installed El C(r)apitan when my new version of Office wouldn’t install on Mavericks. I’d skipped Yosemite and really wish now that I’d installed that instead, but heyโ€•what’s done is done. Most things are behaving normally. At least my scanner still scans.

Anyway: fingerprinting! Watercolor mirroredโ€•to create an animal-like face.

Enjoy your weekend, friends. ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. Good to hear about upgrade. Need to decide what I want to do. I think I have Maverick.

    Looks kinda like a sheep to me. ๐Ÿ

    • I wouldn’t upgrade unless you had to (Office 2016 demanded it from me). It’s got a few bugs and I swear everything was faster before. I hope they have new updates soon.

      Yes, I guess it’s a little sheep-y! *baa* ๐Ÿ˜€

  2. The EYES!!! ๐Ÿ˜€ It looks sheep like, but might be of alien descent! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  3. I upgraded to El Capitan too and it works okay, the problem I have is with the newest version of Safari. Locks up all the time and is slow….UGH!

    • Haven’t had a problem with Safari–yet. I’ve got some kind of ‘keychain’ problem with the Office suite and waaaaay too many “beach balls” and lag in Photoshop and Illustrator, plus Painter takes a few minutes just to start. Good times, yep!

  4. And here I am trying to decide if I want to download Win 10 into my “if it’s not broke don’t fix it” Win 7 OS. As I told my son, I believe I’ll wait until I need a whole new computer (one with touch screen. Your mirrored creature is fantastic ๐Ÿ™‚

    • On my PC, I still have XP (yep, really)… but then, I don’t connect that one to the Internet. ๐Ÿ˜€ I wouldn’t have upgraded the mac if Office didn’t require it. I totally subscribe to the ‘not broke, so don’t fix it’ frame of mind!

      And thanks! Hope you’ve had a nice weekend!

  5. I’m glad your scanner is working. Since the last upgrade, my mac keeps telling my scanner doesn’t exist.

    • Scary! I wouldn’t be able to create much without the scanner, since there isn’t a single artwork I do these days that doesn’t include some traditional medium. I’d rather lose an app or two than the scanner. I hope yours gets recognized soon!

      • The weird thing is if I leave it off for a day or two, my computer recognizes it when I turn it on again. Then the problem comes back after a few days.

        • I had the delightful experience of my mouse not being recognized until I restarted–twice–today. I really hope they have updates soon. I’ve used a mac since OS 8 and have never had so many problems.
