WOYWW 100

Wow - WOYWW has three digits now!!! We are at 100!!! Only four more weeks to the anniversary and the PiF - I just finished mine today.


I have the feeling that my work space looks the same every week, which mainly is due to me not cleaning up. A really bad habit, I know.

I'm working on the canvas on the right, "Girl who loves dogs". However, I can't draw dogs - I can draw pigs, but not dogs. I had first thought of using stickers, but this is kind of tacky (!); especially since all my dog stickers - and there are not many - are of puppies. I want grown dogs. So I stamped dogs ( well, actually coyotes, but that's close enough) and am going to cut them out and make templates. I have started to experiment with heavy body acrylics and discovered that I L-O-V-E them, so I'll use those for painting the dogs (aka coyotes). That will give them a nice texture.

If you want to see more desks of wonderful creative people all around the globe, then please hop over to Julia's blog to find a pretty long list of lovely participants.

Heavy body acrylics? I haven't tried them. In fact, I don't even know what they are. But they sound fun and I can tell how happy YOU are with them. Happy WOYWW from # 6 this week.

Lovely busy desk there - I hardly ever tidy up either but I find if I do my creative juices stop flowing so my motto is stay messy! Thanks for sharing Sunshine Girl No. 32

Your desk is a creative explosion of colour and looks great. The canvas looks fab and the coyote will be perfect but... just a thought.. why didn't you think of tracing a dog?
I love all the messy paper under your artwork too!

Hello again Carola.
Hope the week has treated you well. Your desk has different girls on it and I DO like this week's girl. Also like some things the same, as though the geography tells me where I am.
Have you seen the pics of my little Easter trip? If you feel like popping into the Dargo page, I'd love to know what you think. A couple of the photos are quite nice I think.
Yours,
Ros (60)

Elizabeth said...

Afternoon Carola, love your colourful desk again this week. I can't draw anything much, not pigs, not dogs and certainly not a girl as you have done, though I wish I could. I'm sure the finished painting will be terrific and I expect the coyote dogs will suit the girl perfectly. Love your photos of the baby owls and that house on the island looks very inviting, tucked away as it is amongst the blossoming trees. You make Sylt sound idyllic. Hope you have a great week. Elizabeth x #38

Lynn said...

It is fun to see your desk in action. I like the circles on the girl painting!! I am sure your cayotes will be great.

PS I am enjoying the whale book by Picoult. Thanks again!!! I think of you each time I pick it up and use the book mark you made too!
;-)

Julia Dunnit said...

Ah, lovely Carola, a desk that has colour. I tell you what does change weekly I think - the light. I guess that depends on time of day, but nevertheless, your desk strikes me as perfectly positioned!

Sparkly Engineer said...

Your desk is still pretty tidy for someone who doesn't clean up. I am interested in seeing your project finished
