Delerium

Delerium by Karen Gadient, 2017

Delerium. Created while testing out digital paintbrushes. Looks like a crazy party; I thought it was fun and had to share.

Mixed Media Monday: Floating Daydreams

Floating Daydreams by Karen Gadient, 2016

Floating Daydreams. Acrylic, gouache, watercolor, and digital mixed media.

― Theodor Seuss Geisel

Mixed Media Monday: Curiosity Arises

Curiosity Arises. Acrylic, ink, and digital mixed media.

Every Monday, I’m going to share some colorful new artwork made from a wide variety of art media. This allows me to utilize all the art supplies I have on hand, get creative and messy, and give you something fun to see every week, no matter how busy I am with other things.

In case you missed my note, this will be replacing ‘Finger Painting Friday’. Thanks for supporting me while I create! Have a wonderful week, my friends. 🙂

One more “FingerPaintingFriday”!
Watercolor and gouache on mixed media paper.

So…
I’ve done finger paintings on Fridays since March of 2015, and it’s been fun (plus I hope you’ve enjoyed viewing them), but I’m overdue for a change. Starting on Monday, I’ll be doing something new. I promise it will be colorful and posted weekly. Thank you for encouraging me while I create!

Enjoy your weekend, friends. 🙂
