Drawing Challenge: Stars

105 copy copy

As a follow up to “a little night music” may I present “owl light”. You might remember I started this in 2014 and then I put it in “the pile”. This is the “never get to” pile, sometimes also known as the “must do” pile, and occasionally the “burn it all” pile of begun canvases. Well, this week it was the “project completion” and “check it off one painting at a time” pile. I’m so glad I called this drawing challenge, it gave me a little push. šŸ˜€

Art: Oh gosh, where to start. There’s a collaged 1915 Chopin music page named Nocturne on a wood support, then acrylics, then inks, then chalk, then gold dust, then oils. All glued, rubbed, stencilled, painted and generally mucked about with. That was fun. šŸ˜€

Come visit with all our stars by owl light: Patrice, Carole, Barbara, Ariane, Tammie, Viola, Melodye, Joke, Lucia, Eric, Ā Stefanie,Ā Ā RobertoĀ and Renilde.

    your process is always stunning, v. from your designs i always derive fun, and the moment of energy. yes, what a good idea to call it DC, it does push us. i was thinking about the stars this week and up to last night i was pretty sure i was going to produce something and then all of a sudden doing NOT became so enthralling. … n?

    dear Veronica, thanks for the invitation, i couldn’t find time this week as a little grandson star is staying over and keeping me very busy šŸ™‚ but stars were on my mind this week.
    your owl, silently dancing his wonderfull nightly ballet is gorgeous, he looks like bowing to the stars, his companions in the dark.
    have fine weekend, xx

    Stunningly beautiful! Of course, I love anything you do. So much fun, to participate in these challenges! I started an art journal page, but it didn’t make the cut. It’s unfinished, and not in the same league as everyone else’s, by any stretch of the imagination, but hey…it’s all good, in that it’s all in good fun. See also: practice. I appreciate that you allow this interloper an opportunity to post photos instead of drawings. The direct link to my entry is http://blog.melodyeshore.com/art-challenge-star-search/

    Love it I was rifling through papers today and came across those A4 sized pieces of art you facilitated me to create on that wonderful day at West Cottage – it reminded me what a joy it was to create in that messy and unpredictable and forgiving way – and the pieces actually don’t look that bad! …. I now have a ‘art corner’ in the study – not sure if I’ll actually step up and use it but it’s a gentle start šŸ™‚ X
    Thanks as always for the inspiration

    Beautiful, Veronica. Thank you for hosting another Drawing Challenge.
    I’ve been watching the stars at night wondering what to do when a new direction came into my mind.

    Gorgeous. I am in awe of a gift that allows ‘fun’ to come out looking like the completed work!

    Your “pile”story made me smile. We all have them, with different names. I’m sure this one is from the “hidden treasures” pile.

    Dear Veronica: Thank you for this dc. And your Nocturne is a beautiful piece of art. Lucia

    Dear Veronica, your described piles of abonded works and not go to piles sounds very familiar to me and probable to all artists and so it was a good idea to challenge yourself with a dc and as you and we all can see you did very well and convincing piece which certainly grew over the period of time.
