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!

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. 🙂

Hope you’re having a lovely weekend!

Kaleidoscopes

Kaleidoscopes 1 by Karen Gadient, 2015

Since I’ve been participating in #KaleidoSaturday for a few weeks now, I figured I’d share some of those kaleidoscopes on my blog. Maybe I’ll post them here occasionally―at least the ones I think turned out best. 🙂
