IF: Satellite

My entry for Illustration Friday. Whenever I watch those outer space movies I think about being stranded out there in the middle of no where. I become so engrossed in the thought that I scare myself. I'm glad to be living on the earth. I don't think I would make a very good astronaut.

June Challenge - # 19 Lost in the Stars

My husband was watching Wolfman, which I didn't want to watch, so this is what I did.

June Challenge - #18 Girl with Glasses

I had to get reading glasses. It took me a while to admit that my eyesight was changing. My children convinced me because I would always have to move my reading material away so I could focus.

June Challenge - #17 Brush Daily

I am really pleased with this. I think I will frame it and put it in my daughters bathrooms because I have to remind them to brush. You would think that teenagers would care more about their hygiene.

Challenge - # 16 Cool Like That

I should be doing other things but I had to do another hat pic. I should be at #22.

June Challenge - My Hat

Since I am behind in my Challenge I decided to do more than one picture a day. This will make number 14 & 15. Does it count if it is the same picture just different versions of it?

Creative Everyday Challenge

I work for the school district so I am off for the summer. Usually my art slows down to nothing, so I am challenging myself to create something everyday for the month of June. It doesn't matter what media I use just creat. This is my first art work for this month. I did this on my IBM lenovo X61 tablet. It is an attempt to copy work of John Singer Sargent. I think everything looks pretty good except for the face. Hopefully by the end of this challenge I will have improved.
