Art Prompts: Creature Prompt–Doorway Exit Sign

Creature Prompt 5_31_2015 _0002

“The creature sat there in the doorway, the light of the red exit sign gleaming around it like a halo of fire.”

* I get art prompt ideas off of many websites,and for these, I am currently using some special sketchbooks I have been sitting on for a while and ignoring. They have wonderful handmade paper—it is a bit of a challenge to work with but feels so wonderful in the hands. Enjoy!

(Apologies for the last few days not having other posts; Cuz’n Beth and Cuz’n “Mel” Melanie came up for a visit and we’ve been painting the town.)

Here’s Little Blue Steve guy on our possibly favorite attraction, The Haunted Mansion at Walt Disney World. I probably need to start making characters for our other friends, since a pack of ’em are there with him!

Throwback Thunder Lizard Thursday: Fernbank Museum!

This post combines both Throwback Thursday and Thunder Lizard Thursday! I took myself to the Fernbank Museum today, which is what I often do when I’m by myself over a weekend. I haven’t had a chance to find or take a photo with my beloved Stegosaurus sculpture, so I thought I would seek it out and give it a try. I first took a picture of it while visiting the museum with my pal Nick back in the 90’s.
I was much younger and fitter then. * sigh*
