Skein+Paint Week 41

Skein + Paint Week 41

I look at this image and I think of pumpkin picking, hay rides, and the crunch of the leaves underfoot and all the beauty of the season. Happy Monday. :)

Skein + Paint is a collaboration between two friends who share a love of color, texture, and art. Their idea was simple: that the crossing and mixing of various art forms would inspire something more. By using each other’s work as inspiration, they would stretch within their own work, gain insight into how others view that work, and inspire themselves and others toward future work. Creating in their respective mediums, each week one of them will have provided an image as a prompt and the other will have interpreted that prompt. Dana will be bringing images to life by hand with pencils, paints, pens, etc. Maegan will be working with yarn coupled with photography. The image that was the prompt will be featured on the left and the image that was the interpreted response will be on the right.

Hello. I’m digging this week’s pairing. Maegan’s mitts look warm and cozy and they gave me the idea for the pattern. Have a great day.

October Paint Along Lately

I’ve been on a butterfly painting kick for the October Paint Along. They have all come from my head and that is a lot of fun for me.

Skein + Paint Week 39

S+P October 6

It’s a chilly morning here in NY. The leaves are changing to beautiful colors and falling like crazy. The sky is a beautiful clear blue. I’m falling for fall today along with this version of Skein+Paint.

Day 2 of painting. Bad pic. Sorry. But I love these colors so much. It was a great time spent painting.

The above was done for Inktober which I just learned about yesterday. Basically, do a drawing for a day, or every day in October in ink and share it. Wherever you wish with the hashtag #inktober.

October Paint Along

photo 1

Elisa and I are painting along together for the month of October. Maybe you want to join? Spend 20 minutes or 2 hours. Every day, once a week. The point is to paint. Play with new media if you wish or not. Share if you want. If you do let us know or share on Instagram with the hashtag #octoberpaintalong.

I grabbed this leaf off the porch as I was coming home on this rainy, grey day and painted for a short time.

Hope you play along. xox
