Luxray the GREAT

good morning everyone,thank you dearly for all the sweet comments....last week was a SUPER busy one,so if I haven'y replied or visited your World yet...I will try tonight
...it's the start of a new week...and it's going to be a busy one!
late last night I finished Luxray for Vincent. He's turning 7 and loves Pokemon...so I found Luxray who's one of the characters...this is my first non-real animal which I have painted. As an artist you have to bend to others sometimes...kids grow up...we have to grow with them!
the binders of my watercolour pads are filled with colour tests...I keep them as a memory of the paintings I did...is that wierd?

What do you keep that not too many people know about?

have a great Monday.
HUGS,
Char.

No, I don't think it is weird that you keep your little tabs of color. I think it is kind of cool!

hmmm, don't know what I keep, I'm a famous purger of things in my life, I guess I would say my Orbit gum packages because they have interesting designs on them and they always change. I like collecting tidbits of paper for art projects.

I'm a hoarder - I keep everything I can!

I also really like the idea of keeping a record of the artistic process, just as you are doing here with your colour tests :-)

My youngest son was soooo into Pokemon when he was younger.

I keep everything. lol. I hate parting with anything, even stuff we don't use or need. I always think about how I might need it someday.

I love that you keep your color swatches! Such great reminders of great art! Hmmmm...what do I keep? Not too much, I have to say. I have kept every letter that Daniel has ever written to me and have quite a stack. That's not unusual though... Thanks for your visit, sweet Char! Love, Silke
