Paint Party Friday and Summer of Color

Paint party Friday and excellent chance to peek 
into the weekly goings on of some wonderful artists!
Gladys popped off the page after I watched a horrid interview of a mentally ill old actor  on a very popular news show! The guy yelled and swore through the whole hour! I was so frustrated by the end of it I wanted to scream! That's pretty big for peaceful me!! I kept asking myself why I couldn't turn it off since it gave me harsh anxiety while I was watching!! 
This is Rudy, at least that's who he insisted he was! 
I've never known a fat Rudy  so I didn't think it seemed fitting
I thought his name was Tubs.
He looks a little scared of Gladys eh?
So many people I know are swathed in drama this month. 
It happens to all of us at one time or  another,  fighting
through the anguish, taking  away an appreciation 
for those peaceful moments of joy!
Corbin the Zombie
 I've been walking around like a zombie since sleep seems 
to evade me during our short hot spell.  
Leaving me lots of extra creative time! Don't you find there is a place between Zombiness, and R.E.M sleep that makes you more creative?

I just love all the color edits on Joey!

 It was funny because last week I did this duck, 
who also popped off the page, 
quite grumpy I might add!  For Summer of Color!

I started to edit the duck to remove the lettering because I hate it!! 
The edited version turned out terrible!
The quote was fitting on Monday when Cupcake
put her groceries through the self scanner and it was  
talking back at her!

She said she felt like she was in a Saturday Night live skit!!
Not gunna lie, I thought she was 
going to lose it on someone!
It really was like a duck getting mad at a butterfly!!
Quite a silly scenario!

 Especially with so many people suffering!
 Last week I did this journal page! Fill your heart with kindness!
Soon after a friend asked if I had any spare clothes for a woman in need
Funny how it's hard to purge just for the sake of getting rid of it!
But  when you know you can actually help and make a difference 
it's sooooo easy! I often wonder if we get more out of giving
than the person receiving..... I think so!!

Here are the many faces of Rudy, or are they siblings?
Sorry I am so insanely addicted to the color edits!!
My post are becoming crazy long!!
 This is Brave Gladys!
Jealous Gladys
 Angry Gladys
Goth Gladys
Last but not least Crazy Gladys!!
That's all for now folks!
Have a nice weekend!

The news leaves me upset too! I love how you are able to rid yourself of your negative feelings by expressing yourself through art. Also love how you change your colors to get different effects digitally! Very cool.

Lynn said...

I saw the Robert Blake interview on Piers Morgan too. He was a tad paranoid wasn't he? I felt sorry for him. Or maybe embarrassed for him. I kept thinking Piers must really want this to be over with already, I know I did.

Your montage of color here is fun to see. I love the green Joey best but got very interested in all the changes in them all. A fun run down the page of color!

HPPF on Saturday.

Christine said...

Cool colour edits. Very interesting and surprisingly different.

Tracey Fletcher King said...

That is a busy week and all the colour edits make us look at the images with fresh eyes every time... only downside to visiting here is I always spend too long... need to feed the troops... I am blaming you that they are all starving!!!! Have a cracking week...xx

Love all these and their names, which really fit them. But how on earth do you get so much artwork done-you must have 48 hours in a day!

Viola said...

Haha! I love your Gladys! :D What a wonderful idea to draw and paint her after the horror tv interview..! :)

Many lovely drawings and it's fun to see how each and one change the image by color editing! :)

Have a lovely day! :)

Funny how color changes things. The duck looked kinda angry in the first picture, but when painted pink, not so much. These are all great!

denthe said...

OMG! I love all the sweet crazy characters you create! Gladys is my favorite, although Corbin comes a very close second. That expression on his face is spot on!

Julie said...

Your art is wonderful! It really makes me smile. I love the bright bold colors.
