OH, NO!! ANOTHER ADDICTION!




I was quite busy today with my art. I accomplished a lot and then I was investigating a drawing done by someone on the Everyday Matters network and WHAM! I BECAME ADDICTED TO THE SCRIBBLE WEBSITE. You can click on the title to this blog and it will take you there, but be warned. This is a very dangerous site for artists! The drawing I first saw done with this "tool" looked like a cobweb wrapped with colored string. It was nice and I was curious, so I ventured over to Scribble and made a stupid little line drawing and started playing with the different controls. Then I looked at the gallery of other work and was blown away by the possibilities. I don't know how much time I spent just looking at the different work and then decided to try a version of the Frenchman. I am working on a MacBook so I was drawing with my finger instead of a mouse. It took me a few tries but this is the 3rd or 4th one I did. You can take a picture of the picture but I didn't close the directions window and I got a picture of the screen with the instructions covering up my drawing! I had to start again. Anyway, I now know how to take a picture of whatever is on my screen (didn't know I could do that!) so I took pictures as I developed this image. I am very excited about the possibilities for exciting line drawings using this tool and then developing them into paintings.

If you would like to try and do a version of the Frenchman on the Scribble site, send it to me and I will make a really fun slide show!

Tomorrow I will post the other work that I did today. Now I have to get back to scribbling.

Myrna, what have you done???

Now it's your civil duty to provide us with a link to the 12-step program of Scribblers Anonymous!

Just spent ALOT of time looking at your blog. Wonderful work! Your excitement about art is shared and contagious! I work in alot of different mediums, portrature is a weakness for me but I can see by your series of the frenchman that working at it is the best way to proceed! I am from the same area, inland San Diego. Perhaps we will meet sometime.
Continued success!

MYRNA! I already have an addiction to 'I Can Has Cheezburger' for my daily LOLs. I suppose I can fit one more in if I think of it as exercise for my fingers as I don't use a mouse.
