Art Every Day Month (AEDM) Day 6 - 11

I fell a bit behind with the posting for Art Every Day Month, but have decided the main thing is doing some art every day.  I can say that I have, so I am pleased with that.  I have started with most recent first and worked my way back.  Been playing with paints along side the pen and ink work....

Day 11
Here is my efforts for today, started out with a quick sketch then filled it out. 
I find it quite relaxing doing these pen and ink pieces

Day 10
Because your gorgeous.....we all have a gift and talent that is waiting to be
expressed into the world, we have to take a step every day into the uncomfortable

Day 9
As I do the challenges I go through mixed emotions.  We are continuosly
questioning ourselves, our decisions and where we are at any given time. 
Often where we are is where we are meant to be for that season. 
We try and find our place in the bigger scheme of things but when we understand
what we are meant to learn at each place and appreciate the gifts that will come.

Day 8
Day 8 painting reminded that even though we go though the hard times
our hearts will one day heal, It's my best friend Barbara's birthday this month,
it's been 8 months since she passed, I know we don't forget those trying times,
as much as while we are in the midst we will get though to the other end.

Day 7
This is mini journal I made out of recycled paper, started to do some mini paintings in, the images are not prepared before, I did the background then waited for the image to come out.  Letting go, moving on for me is about growth, we have to grow otherwise we stand still.

Day 6
This was day 6 sketch using pen and ink, I like the effect that you get with the pens. Been using the Faber Castell Pitt Pens, after this one decided to take a break for a few days and do some painting.


  1. Some beautiful work here, I love that face the sepia ink looks really cool and I like the text you incorporated into it.

  2. oh wow Amanda!!! what a wonderful collection you have great to meet you through AEDM!!!!

  3. hey Amanda
    Thanks for visiting my site, i like your work! I'm usually not a great fan of mixed media work but your pieces are very expressive and i like them, like the theme colours too. And your ink sketches are cool. it's fascinating to see how different we all express ourselves through art.

    Keep going
