Kaleidoscope for the 4th

Kaleidoscope for the 4th by Karen Gadient, 2017

Made a kaleidoscope while playing around with various digital painting brushes.

Not watching fireworks tonight, since we’d rather avoid the heat, but I plan on making us a fancy dinner and relaxing after that. Hope you’re having a great day, wherever you are and whatever you’re doing!

Tie-Dye Sunrise

Tie-Dye Sunrise by Karen Gadient, 2016

Tie-Dye Sunrise. Pastel, ink, colored pencil, and digital mixed media.
Experimental artwork. Sort of a trippy tie-dye design.

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 hey―what’s done is done. Most things are behaving normally. At least my scanner still scans.

Anyway: fingerprinting! Watercolor mirrored―to create an animal-like face.

Enjoy your weekend, friends. 🙂

Another cactus-themed design for #KaleidoSaturday. 🙂

When you gaze long into the cactus, the cactus also gazes into you.

Acid Berry. For a print and other items, please click the image.

Yep, those are some sharp colors. Done with acrylic paint on Strathmore acrylic paper (first time using, really like) while listening to Jimi Hendrix.

“If it’s too loud, you’re too old.” ― credited most often to Ted Nugent, although I’m sure versions of that quote go back a heckuva long time.
