April 15, 2015


My phone has stubbornly decided to take all pictures with a sideways point of view. After getting a little grumbly, I decided to stop fighting. We all have sideways days now and again!


The other day I bought a papaya and then wanted to paint one. I found a photo online and tried my first painting of it. Very rudimentary and when I do a side-by-side I see all sorts of things wrong with it but I did it!

Life can be sideways for sure Shannon and I just love seeing photos of you so it's all good here. FB stopped letting me upload photos completely for a while, so weird!

Shannon said...

OH that's so weird that Facebook wasn't letting you upload photos! I have that intermittently, but it always goes away. It's so annoying when that happens!

I love your papaya painting! I totally thought you did it from life, I had no idea it was from a picture. I think it's amazing you are jumping into things like painting! I am soooo impressed :)

LOL, I love the sideways pic, Shannon, though I imagine that's frustrating!

Suzie, I think your papaya painting looks awesome! Yay you for diving in and doing that. It's fab!

Hey, did you see the new drawing class on Creativebug? I watched a bit and found it interesting.

Suzie Ridler said...

Thank you! It took a lot of courage to try and paint that papaya, LOL.

Yes, I have been watching the drawing class and I love it. I like that she is going for stylized approach and less realistic.
