A single flower number 3

Wasn't sure I'd get to post this as my old P.C despite some TLC seems to be on it's last legs and having hot flushes especially on warmer days :)                     

So this is probably my last mixed piece of art for Sheila aka Orange Esmeralda Single flower theme this month over at Art Journal Journey ... and as what's lately become my 'norm'- this is mixed media with digital additions. Created using: watercolours/acrylics, distress inks, acrylic ink, Neo2 colors and inktense pencils/bars, Pilot&Posca pens and digital quotes.

a couple more pieces from 2020

Thanks so much for stopping by...
I know I'm already behind, but will try and catch up/visit
 when poss..or I can get a new p.c.
Until next time...
stay safe...

  1. Love this intense color tulip page! My mouth kept dropping open farther and farther as I read the massive list of color supplies you used creating the page. That’s mixed media to the highest level. I love the subtle red writing in the background. The leaves are super spotted fun. Isn’t that sentiment perfect for an art journal. Well done!

  2. That is a beautiful single flower digital page Gill. I love the big tulip and that interesting background. Your other pieces from 202 are wonderful also. My computer was doing the same thing-having the hot flashes that is. I finally went and got something else for fear it would totally crash on me. Good luck with your machine. And hope all else is well. Thanks for sharing with us at AJJ. Hugs-Erika

  3. Thanks very much for this lovely tulip for my theme at AJJ, Gill. I love the background with these bright colours and all the little bits and strips and text which create so much of interest. I like the dotted bright green leaves too, they are fun.
    Your ladies are beautiful and wise too, with their gorgeous flowers, the pretty pink roses and your own special orange ones.
    Hope your PC lasts a bit longer until you get a new one.

  4. A gorgeous bright and colourful page Gill, and I love your ladies with their uplifting messages.
    Have a good evening,
    Alison xx

  5. I love the red spring flower. I had a bunch of red and yellow tulips for my birthday in the middle of March. I also love the inspiring quotes for your ladies.

  6. Sorry to read about your PC Gill, my laptop has been having a hard time recently too. Hope it doesn't keep you offline for too long we love to see your beautiful art and what a delight this Mixed media piece is. Rich oranges so warm with your lovely tulip style flower standing so tall.
    Your 2020 ladies are very pretty pages displaying strong words and extra strong woman. Beautiful.
    Take care & I hope it is not too long before we see you again.
    Have a great weekend Tracey xx

  7. Such beautiful pages and how wonderful to see you here back in Blogland 😁. I love how you created this mixed media page and added the digital additions, the colours are so bright and cheery! Take care and I hope to see you here again despite your PC having hot flushes, I can relate to that myself 😉. Happy and creative wishes! Hugs, Jo x

  8. Love the concept of filling paper with your dreams! Super cool page for AJJ - love the colors and the flowers. Great previous art too - you are very talented.

  9. Wow! I love your flower page - such fabulous colours too! Thanks for entering at AJJ. Love these portraits. Hope you get sorted with your PC soon! Hugs, Chrisx

  10. I'm also having problems being online, but mine are beyond my control. I am in total awe of your incredible mixed media beauty. That single flower is amazing. You did a fabulous job painting it. It really spoke to me, as did your incredible other paintings. I'm glad to see you are here in blogland again and also at Art Journal Journey, too.
