Project 365, Hearts, Day #151 (881)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my heart for day #151 (881).


A quick, messy looking design tonight.  I drew freehand and went over the lines with a couple different thicknesses of markers.  Pretty simple.  That's all for me.  Hannah and I are traveling tomorrow for her college orientation, and we still have a few things to do.  Have a good evening and thanks for stopping by.

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Hearts, Day #150 (880)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my heart for day #150 (880).


A really quick one tonight.  I almost forgot about my heart.   I remembered much earlier but then we watched a movie and I almost went to bed without doing my heart.  So that's all for me, I am just getting this in under the wire.  Thanks for stopping by.

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Hearts, Day #148 (878)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my heart for day #148 (878).


I changed it up a bit tonight.  I like it better when the heart looks like an all over composition, not so much just a heart in the middle of the page.  Those hearts are good for playing with different patterns within the heart though.  Well I guess that's all for now.  Have a good evening and thanks for stopping by.

Take care,
Kelly

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my heart for day #147 (877).


Color and black ink again tonight.  Not sure about the design but I am having a hard time thinking of new or different things.  It's a heart though and that's what the daily projects are all about.  That's all for now.  Have a good evening and thanks for stopping by.

Take care,

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my heart for day #146 (876).


A combination of color and black inks tonight.  I like the look of this one.  I always like how the black ink makes the color pop.  That's all for me tonight.  Have a good evening and thanks for stopping by.

Project 365, Hearts, Day #145 (875)

Hello,

Happy Memorial Day!  I hope you have enjoyed your weekend.  Here is my heart for day #145 (875).


A simpler design for tonight.  We had a long drive back from our RV trip.  It took six hours again, crazy driving and traffic.  We had a nice weekend though and it's nice to be home as well.  That's all for now.

Thanks again to all of our veterans and their families!!  I appreciate all that you do and have done.

Thanks for stopping by and have a good evening!

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Hearts, Day #144 (874)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my heart for day #144 (874).


A kind of peek-a-boo heart design for tonight.  I am not crazy about the colors I picked, I should have gone with more contrasting colors.  I think they would have made the design 'pop' a little more.  That's all for me.  Have a good evening and a thanks for stopping by.  

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Hearts, Day #143 (873)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my heart for day #143 (873).


I hope you are enjoying the start to your long weekend.  We had a good day here in Borrego Springs.  Nice weather and nice family time.  I have a stipple heart for you tonight.  It is made up of three different colors, but they don't show up so well in the photo.  The lighting is a little dim in the RV and I can't find a nice spot to take the photos.  I like the way this one turned out and it definitely looks better in person.  Well that's all for me.  We are going to try and do a little star gazing, hopefully we will have a good night for it.  Thanks for stopping by.

Take care,
Kelly

Hello,

I hope you had a good day. Here is my heart for day #142 (872).


We are in the RV tonight.  A drive that should have taken three hours, took six hours.  Not a great way to spend an extra three hours in traffic but we are here safe and sound.  Here is my little heart for tonight, rather simple.  I am pretty tired and I think we are all heading to bead soon.  Thanks for stopping by.

Take care,
Kelly

Hello,

I hope you had a good day. Here is my heart for day #141 (871).


I had a long day of running around, so when I sat down to do my heart I totally forgot about adding color.  So a nice black and white illustration for tonight again.  That's all for me.  We a going on an RV trip this weekend and I still have lots to do.  Have a good evening and thanks for stopping by.

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my heart for day #140 (870).


Rather simple again, but it did take a little time.  I'm finding it hard to think of different things to draw.  I think I will try adding some color again to my hearts, that will be a nice change.  That's all for now.  Have a good evening and thanks for stopping by.

Take care,

Project 365, Hearts, Day #138 (868)

Hello,

I hope you had a nice day.  Here is my heart for day #138 (868).


Simple but I really like the overall composition of tonight's heart.  It's still a surprise to me how some turn out and how much I can like (or dislike) the hearts.  Well that's all for tonight, a crazy Monday for me, and I am looking to relax a bit now.  Thanks for stopping by!

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Hearts, Day #137 (867)

Hello,

I hope you had a good weekend.  Here is my heart for day #137 (867).


I can't believe the weekend is already over.  It flew by to me.  I always want to get more done and there doesn't seem to be enough time.  I did get to clean and organize in the studio again, so I am happy about that.

Tonight's heart was done with pen straight to paper.  I have been sketching with pencil first the last few days, so I decided to make it permanent from the start tonight.  It can be trickier because I worry about making a mistake but it is also a little more freeing because you have to work with what you put down. It's nice because it forces you to continue and your design can keep changing.

Well that's all for tonight.  Thanks for stopping by.

Take care,
Kelly

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my heart for day #134 (864).


A few swirls for tonight.  Not that exciting but nothing was really coming to me.  Sometimes the ideas just pop in my head and other times, not so much.  That's all for me.  Thanks for stopping by and have a good night.

Take care,

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my heart for day #133 (863).


I'm trying to think of different ideas and I think this works tonight, for being a little different.  I am happy with the way this turned out.  I guess that's all for now, not much else to say.  Have a great evening and thanks for stopping by.

Project 365, Hearts, Day #130 (860)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my heart for day #130 (860).


This seemed the best way to do my heart for tonight.  I hope you had a great Mother's Day!  I had a very nice day.  Relaxing, good food and nice family time.  Molly spent a long time in the kitchen working on a special dessert.  Here it is.


A lemon cupcake, filled with a blueberry compote, white chocolate ganache frosting, blueberry drizzle and a sugared lemon peel in the shape of a heart!!  All made from scratch by Molly.  She put the idea together herself and found different recipes to make all the different parts.  Very impressive and quite delicious!!

That's all for me.  Have a great evening and thanks for stopping by.

Take care,
Kelly

Project 365, Hearts, Day #129 (859)

Hello,

I hope you had a nice Saturday.  Here is my heart for day #129 (859).


A rather simple design for tonight.  I have ideas but sometimes I find it hard to incorporate the heart.  I like to do an overall pattern and I have to say I didn't think it would be hard to add hearts but it is challenging.  Each day is different, some days are easier than others and I think that is all part of doing this daily project.  That's all for now.  Thanks for stopping by.

Take care,

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my heart for day #128 (858).


I tried the curvy lines tonight but blocking in all the shapes.  I definitely like this better than yesterday's. I think it makes for a better composition.  That's all for me.  Have a great weekend!  

Take care,

Project 365, Hearts, Day #127 (857)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my heart for day #127 (857).


I was trying something similar to yesterday's but with curvy lines.  I decided to draw in my sketch lines tonight.  I don't like the way this looks as much though.  I think I will try it tomorrow with curve lines and just blocking in the shapes.  We'll see which one I like better.  That's all for now.  Thanks for stopping by.

Take care,

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my heart for day #125 (855).


A nice little food heart tonight.  I made ceviche and guacamole for dinner tonight.  I decided to plate up a chip with a guacamole heart and a nice little tomato accent.  These food hearts are fun because well, it's fun to play with your food, and then I also get to enjoy the little treat.  It's a win win.  ; )

That's all for tonight.  Have a good evening and thanks for stopping by.

Take care,

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my heart for day #124 (854).


I didn't feel like drawing tonight, so I decided on using some raw pumpkin seeds for my heart.  Simple and fun for tonight and I also get to snack on the heart after : ).

That's all for me.  Thanks for stopping by!

Project 365, Hearts, Day #122 (852)

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my heart for day #122 (852).


It was a slow day at my show today so I had a lot of time to work on my heart.  I don't even know how many hours I spent on it but is was a long time compared to what I have been doing.  I even spent some more time on it at home to fill in some spaces.  It was a lot of sketching, a little erasing and then sketching again.  I really like the way it turned out but I didn't want to ink it in and then mess up on the inking part.  I want to scan this one into the computer and play with the design some more, so I wanted to keep it in it's natural state.

That's all for me.  I forget how tired I get working the shows.  The loading and unloading are tiring and just standing there for hours is also tiring.  Crazy.  Well that's all, have a good night and thanks for stopping by.  

Take care,
Kelly

Hello,

I hope you had a good day.  Here is my heart for day #121 (851).


I just got home around 10:40pm from my show.  I drew this up quick for tonight.  It was a long day and I am very tired and my body is aching.  So that's all for me.  I need to clean up a few things in the kitchen and the I am off to bed.  Thanks for stopping.

Take care,
Kelly
