Paint Party Friday Week 11 year two! Digital Edits!


Make sure to check out all the other wonderful artists  Paint Party Friday 

I am still doing quirky childish characters!!
Meet Goozey
 I've decided to do a pile of color edits on Goozey just for fun!!!
When dear daughter went to bed she really didn't like this character....wonder how she will feel when she see's the edits I did on him!!



Art is subjective and most people aren't comfortable being honest when they don't like your work. So I really value  my son-in-law and daughters honest opinions about my creativity! I don't take it personally if the kids don't like something I paint.  Often  I will produce a piece they love, which I despise! It happened tonight when I wouldn't show them what I painted only to find they loved Chewbie who I have posted last!  I think he's a quirky lemur!! I really didn't care for him at all!! That's why he's posted last!
 If I like a piece I keep it even if the kids don't like it!
I still appreciate their opinion though!!
 I have a large painting in my foyer because it's my son-in-laws favorite
....but I really don't care for it at all!!! 


It was really fun to play around with the photo bucket edit program just to see what I could come up with!!  When trying to change Chewbie's color they turned out  really ugly. I guess it depends on the color combinations you use!!
Chewbie

 

I also did a collage with fun color edits you can see here!  Dear daughter  and my best friend think the collage is creepy, dear daughter doesn't like it, where as best friend does!!!  I love color edits best!!

Who do you trust to give you their honest critique about your creativity?

I guess I am easy. I like all of Goozey's colors. Chewby is too cute. And I like the last color on Sally. Love your fanciful flights.

Netty said...

The important question is do you like it? I think they are all fab and funky creatures. Happy PPF, Annette x

Wow, Giggles, I also like Chewbie best. It think it is the color. It's great for him.

I think Chewbie rocks! Of course I think anything with polka dots rock, but he(she?) is wins out over the cats - because of the tail;-)

Hello again, ah the fun of asking the family what they think of such and such a piece, I love this part. My oldest son usually loves everything I do, my youngest is like his father and picks at them, ah but that's the fun! My husband can be hard to please, and I love that, he pushes me on. Painting and sharing our art is such fun, that's why I love coming here on a Friday.It's been fun visiting you here, take care and enjoy your week-end! xx

And I like Chewbie best of all! I think it is the expression on his face. So endearing. If I want an honest opinion on a painting, I always ask my son and never my husband. And if he wants an honest opinion of his writing or anything else, he asks me, never his dad.

my daughter is most honest by a long shot, but I trust her eye and she is usually spot on... I like chewbie by the way and how nice are you to keep a pic your son in law up even when you don't care for it... much nicer than I am I think...xx

Simona Cordara said...

Theresa said...

Adorable and whimsical critters! Happy PPF!

Tammie Lee said...

how fun to see your characters and to read about your family and how you interact with them and your art. I like both of these critters, they are fun.

Kristin said...

I love them! And I love the original. That color program looks like so much fun and I think I would get lost playing around in there!
When I want total honesty, I ask the family too - especially the 6 year old and husband ;)

Anne said...

Fun and colorful! I don't know why, but Chewbie's expression made me laugh out loud! Priceless! :)

Fallingladies said...

Veryfun, my husband gives me honest critiscm but as you said, sometmes i love it anyway!

kristin maynes said...

How fun! I never thought of doing something like that...editing with a photo program. I think I'll try it out sometime. Great artwork! Happy PPF!

Janet said...

Everyone sees things through different eyes. It would be pretty darn boring if we all liked the same thing. I like your colorful creatures. And I still think they'd make a great kids book.

Ginny said...

I love looking at all of the different colors. The bright purple was my favorite. My husband is brutally honest. I've learned to appreciate the honesty. I've also come to realize that each opinion is just that - their opinion.

Diana Evans said...

oh what a wonderful place!!! love the new paintings and love the new header and colours here!!!!

Elisa Choi said...

what fun characters again! Enjoyable to see.I agree that art appreciation depends on the eyes of the beholder. I value my bf's opinion as well as my friends. Chewbie is so cute!

Linda said...

I love your quirky characters and oh oh, I have to admit that I adore Chewbie too. Can't help it, he's kept saying "choose me, choose me, please." What can I say, I'm a push over for the underdog. ;]

What a delightful and fun group of quirky critters! Happy PPF!
