Art work catch up...


It's my working weekend, so I'm pretty pooped, but I wanted to catch up on recording the artwork I've swapped lately. I hope everyone is doing well. I'll probably do more blog reading and such after I get through work tomorrow.

Okay, now I'll start looking through my photos and slapping them on this page as I find them. :)

These four were for a Pick-a-Theme swap. Each person in my "group" asked for a specific theme for their card.


"Bird in a birdbath"

"Cats" and "Nature"
 This one was for a Make Me Happy swap where you make someone happy by drawing what they ask for. These are one-to-one swaps. This gal asked for a drawing of Aki, a singer in a Japanese band. I'd never heard of her, but I Googled her name and found a photo for reference.
 Then there was the "Cars" swap. I know, I know, they're WONKY. That's the best I can do...

 For another Make Me Happy (MMH) swap a guy asked for a bobcat.
 And yet another MMH. She asked for a Beatrix Potter character.
 I'm just beginning a 29 Faces challenge. We simply draw a face each day. I haven't done one today. I'll probably wait til Monday and do several to catch up.
I was down to just the 29 Faces challenge and our usual monthly 5x7 acrylic on canvas swap, but today I added a bunch of inchies swaps to my list. My friend in the UK (she goes by the name of Noodlerabbit on the swap site) comes up with so many cute ideas for swaps that I can't resist. :)

Everyone have a great rest of your weekend!


  1. Your cars are fantastic, Lisa!

  2. So many cute ATCs again. You've been keeping busy.

  3. I like to see all these nice watercolours! Congratulation! I think you enjoy many people!

  4. I love your wonky cars! And never stop being amazed by your creativity and the way it nourishes you. Glory to God!

  5. I had forgotten you have more than one blog! your art work is fun and covers such a wide range of subjects, I love your cars - really good. just been browsing through the posts for this year, hope you find a mail order firm that will deliver to your home. In the UK we have so much choice, but Next is a household name, I just checked their website and it appears they deliver orders over $40 free to US. this is the website for US customers: I hope it works and that you find something lovely.

  6. I LOVE the cars, Lisa!!!! I think you should do lots of cars. Very fun!!!

  7. That's a LOT Of work! You must be fast. I painted a watercolor of my chicken Ruby just the other day. Julia wanted to paint, and she wanted company :) Then I went outside and looked at Ruby and realized I'd done her face all wrong, haha! LOVE the Peter Rabbit! He's very good.


Thanks for dropping by! I'd love to hear your thoughts! :)
