Sugar Skulls for Free Art Friday (last week)

Last week’s them for Free Art Friday was butterflies, but I wanted to do something besides simply butterflies. So I drew up a few sugar skull ladies and gave them little swarms of butterflies! I dropped these in Uptown Columbus during the St Patrick’s Day festivities. Hope they went to a good home!

K9 Poodle Skirt

Since I am totally obsessed with Doctor Who, I couldn’t turn down the opportunity to make this skirt happen. A group of us were planning on going to see Grease at the Springer Opera House  and we turned it into a costumed event. I painted K9 on my skirt. Get it?! Ahhh I can’t stop laughing at this!

Day 10 – 18th Amendment (drew on the back of a receipt at my friend’s birthday party so I wouldn’t miss my day!)

Finishing Week 1 of my 365 challenge

In an effort to not be so cluttery, I am thinking I will post by the week here. I will still post daily on my Instagram and Facebook.

On day 6 I had spent most of the day in the car driving all around the state of Georgia, but I made sure to get a quick painting in before bed. I only put in about half an hour, but I don’t want to miss a day!

TamaraPaints365 – Day 1

I am starting a personal challenge to do one painting a day for a year to improve my skills and challenge myself to be more spontaneous in my subject matter. Sometimes it may overlap the Columbus project, since I love it here so much.

Yesterday was Day 1! Wish me luck!
