I cannot claim to have come up with this concept for amazing doodle on my own; it was a special request from my very own husband, MrE. But I absolutely love it! I don’t particularly love poodles, they are nice and smart and all but a too lanky. I DO love all forms of noodles.
It was nice to do something completely representational, even if the form is abstract. I think the next step is to actually draw my own pets in some future doodles. We shall see…
Only three types of noodles,but each poodles does have a slightly different hairdo.
For even more cuteness, here are kittens. They were hugging a moment before I took the picture, but I was too late.
Working with colors is something that I have historically been hesitant to do because black and white is so much easier. Its been really great to work on my own understanding of color choice and balancing hues for an overall compositional effect. One of my biggest problems in art school was using too many colors that did not share a unifying theme between them. It is almost impossible to get black and white wrong (not that I haven’t done that too). So, just to see how far I’ve progressed since I started doing this doodle project, I decided to make a traditional-style zen-ish doodle.
Tried out some new patterns and of course, added paisley.
Maybe one of these days I’ll take some inspiration from one of the adorable pets in my life. It has sure been fun having the kittens with us so we could marvel at their cuteness!
She’s just so adorable. Why can’t we keep all the kittens ever?!
Toe Beans. Nuff said.
They are so big! They barely fit on the window ledge.
Ever since I have started updating my blog regularly, I’ve become a little more immersed into the blog-o-sphere. This includes checking out stuff from around the web, and always being surprised when my blog is followed by a stranger (Thanks by the way, strangers!). On one of the first blogs I encountered, when browsed her work, mostly projects made of felt, I came across these beautiful and colorful felt flowers. (Check it out, seriously) I immediately knew I needed to do a doodle using these little gems as inspiration.
One thing I have especially enjoyed about searching for blogs for inspiration is seeing all of the talent and creativity displayed on the interwebs. There are all sorts of craftswomen especially, who are continuing in the proud tradition of generations of women who have gone before to make beautiful hand-made objects and art. Of course, there are some dudes too, and their work has just as much heart and soul, but in a less girly way 😛 .
Without further ado, here is one of my felt-flower doodles!
I told the original maker of these little flowers that they looked like jewels. I tried to duplicate that.
Of course, I also have some cute kitten pictures to share, I wish I could keep all of the kittens, and that they would stay kittens. I’ll have to do with my grown kitties instead and little foster fur babies.
Why would you wake us up?! You fool!
Just guarding the front room from suspicious characters. And string.
