I have been doing the Making Art Everyday challenge with Bardot Brushes. Today is day 93 and I am very proud and a bit surprised that I have done 93 Procreate drawings based on the prompts!! I usually peter out of these things when I use my traditional media material. Maybe it is the ease (just a few swipes and you can undo something or that it just needs to be charged and it is ready to go). Whatever the reason, I am very happy that I am keeping up this practice.

This little planter is by my side in my work office – I stare at it often and imagine painting it. So, I knew that I would use this subject for today’s prompt “cactus”

Art work for sale!

I have 2 small canvases up for sale in the Livermore Art Association ‘New Dawn” art show. Both are 6×6 and painted on all sides. It can work on its own, on a small wall, or be part of an accent of multiple pieces, or it looks great on a shelf. It’s very versatile! Art will be picked up in Livermore. I’d be happy to ship it if you’re not local. (Separate fee)

You will find this piece here – if you have any questions, please feel free to ask me!

more from making art everyday

I am still doing the Bardot Brush – Making Art Everyday (MAE) challenge. I have been doing all of the prompts so far! I really want to learn more about how to use Procreate and this is the way to do it (for me). I am also excited about getting a subscription to SkillShare – I hope that I do not go down rabbit holes and start taking classes on too many topics!! Work and the Senate hearings are taking up much of my space right now.

Ina Garten – my hero!

I love the Barefoot Contessa – Ina Garten – kitchen god! Today’s prompt was “favorite dinner” and I was a bit stumped – I have so many favorites! We love to cook and eat at my home and I would have to say, hands down – Ina’s recipes are in heavy rotation! Some of my favorites – Chicken Piccata (my birthday request for many years now), Asian Salmon (the combo of Dijon mustard, garlic, soy sauce and Olive Oil is De-Vine!!), sagaponack corn pudding and The Italian Wedding soup are some that quickly come to mind. 

I would love to attend one of her parties! We try to model that spirit when we have guests over (back in the day). Simple pleasures that convey love and appreciation.

Sushi

Meal prompt today was “sushi” – another one of my favorite meals. I miss going to a restaurant and having a sushi meal. We’ve been doing take out, but it is not really the same experience. I do love rolls, especially when they involve avocado. But, good old nigiri is heaven on a plate.

Pizza

To me, pizza is the perfect meal. I am super picky about my pizza – it must be NY, simple, folded. Use the crusts to dip up the oil drippings. Never use a fork to eat this, definitely, no pineapple on it! I miss my pizzeria in Long Island (Marios).

Hostess Cupcake

I have such memories of these cupcakes! I remember liking the top and inside, but not really caring for the cake part much! It was such a special treat to get these at our candy store. I prefer Ding Dongs, Yodels and Devil Dogs, but the cupcake had the best look!

Today’s prompt was “cake” – I present to you, a fourless chocolate cake. Hopefully, a nice escape from our on-going news. This is my favorite. I’d rather have a brownie, cookie, fruit tart or a pie over cake. What is your favorite dessert?
