Hello there Journal & Friends,
I had someone ask about the painting I have at the top of my blog page, underneath my blog name... whether or not it was some of my art. So since it IS, I chose it for today's Toon Tuesday.
The name of it is "Joy in The Morning". It was part of a series of small paintings on 4" x 4" canvas. This first pic is one of the rough sketches I made, to work out composition and color (click to enlarge).
And now the finished little painting (click to enlarge).
I hope you like it, it was fun to do. I especially enjoyed researching bunnies for this series. :-) You can see the rest of the bunny series (HERE).
The reason I posted a "re-run" was because I didn't finish the Toon I am working on. :-O I decided not to rush, but to take my time and enjoy the process. I had visited Bella's blog a while back, at Bella on the Beach. She had posted a wonderful theme drawing someone had created. They chose a Theme for 2010, with key words, and then made a little banner to post on their blog. I loved the idea! (see Bella's post here)
Here is the one she posted that caught my eye, and inspired me to make my own:
She also had another one in the same style (HERE).
So I am hoping to have mine finished for next weeks Toon Tuesday. If you like the idea, hop on board and make one for yourself. Be sure to let us all know, so we can admire it. :-)
Thanks, Bella, for passing on a great idea!
