Happy Ellen Makes Art

LOTS of art! I did 12 pieces for Sketch Fest so far, and most of them are finished, and most of them are in color. REMARKABLE. Plus, I like them a lot.

I like it less that my server flipped out partway through the Sketch Fest, so I extended it another 12 hours, because it was terrifically disruptive. Yes! We're going until NOON tomorrow!

Now, some artwork.







I may inflict more on you tomorrow, but the baby is down and I never got a nap today... too busy arting! (And chasing a baby pretending to eat her head to make her giggle...) You can see all of them, plus four finished pieces from the last Fest: http://www.ellenmilliongraphics.com/sketchfest/sketchfestartist.php?id=9

Oh, lovely! Congratulations on getting so many pieces done. That third one is especially nice -- wonderful use of the midtone of the paper!

Thank you! I am not a fan of yellow, but I really like the way that one turned out. Really pops against the teal tail.

I really like the woman with sky for hair and the ladybug. Some of the nicest pieces I've seen in a while from you.

These are gorgeous, but the first one especially gets me through the heart!

Thank you! Interestingly, I started that one oriented the other direction and didn't decide she was lying down until very near the end. It went from 'okay' to 'my favorite!' with just a couple of hair curls.

I love all three, but most especially the first one :)

PS: I rarely get time to comment anymore between school and home ownership and so on, but I am still reading and loving seeing your progress with Guppy and how you're doing and stuff :)

I think the first is my favorite of all the ones I did this week.

I'm so happy you're still around and reading! I've missed your posts (but boy, do I understand the busy!)
