Quantum

Quantum by Karen Gadient, 2015

Quantum. Acrylic, ink, and digital mixed media.

Just playing around with scans I never used for other projects. Which seems to be mostly what I’ve been up to lately–I’m trying to use all the little paintings and doodles I have stacked on drying racks in my office-studio.πŸ™‚

The more clearly we can focus our attention on the wonders and realities of the universe about us, the less taste we shall have for destruction. ― Rachel Carson

Created during experiments with discarded scans. I liked the way it looked, so figured I’d share. Hope you’re having a good week so far!

Purple Flower

Purple Flower by Karen Gadient, 2015

Purple Flower. Photograph with traditional watercolor layers and digital mixed media.

My husband David takes some wonderful photos and we thought it would be fun to see what I could create with them using scanned traditional art media and digital painting and editing. This purple flower was one David found during our last trip to Desert Botanical Garden. No idea what kind of flower it is, but it was on a bush, not a cactus. I’ll experiment more with his photos and share here.

Hope you’re having a great week so far!

Hummingbird

This morning, I saw #DrawABirdDay trending on Twitter. I thought it was cute. You know, birds and twittering and all that… so, I gathered a few unused acrylic scans and did some digital painting to make a hummingbird.

We have hummingbirds in our yard, thanks to the lovely blown glass feeder David’s parents gave us a few years ago. It’s mostly hummingbirds and doves around here. What kind of birds gather where you live?
