Mixed Media Monday: Fever

Fever by Karen Gadient, 2017

Fever. Watercolor and ink.

Apologies for this being a day late; I returned from my holiday family trip with a bug and finally forced myself to the doctor yesterday. Under the spell of medication and exhaustion, this is what I’ve managed for this week: chaotic but interesting. I hope you’re having a happy and cold-or-flu-free start to the year!

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. 🙂
