Getting behind with this.

49 Wine.

50 Sunday Funnies.

 52 Sewing.


51 Love your Pet Day.

So here we got 'arty' 
 53 Taxi

54 Dogs

The prompt for this day was about Polar Bears.  No idea.  So I give you:
58 International Strawberry Day.

 And to round the month off: 
59 Mandala.

Scavenger Hunt.

I have been doing a weekly challenge called Scavenger Hunt.  It's lots of fun and a bit similar to The Dot to Dot that Joan Mannix posts each month.

We are given a list of unrelated items to include in a piece of art.  I choose to do a page in my art journal.
Here a the pages I have done so far.

Week 1 

Week 2

Week 3

Week 4

Week 5 

Looking forward to continuing through the year.

#365dayssomething Week 4

Well here we are again.  Still going.  Not at all sure how artistic it all is but it's fun.

#21 Squirrel Appreciation day.

Not exactly sure how one appreciates a squirrel, and at the time my computer was in sick bay and I couldn't download an image I decided on a koala instead.  This image was copied from a colouring book I bought by local Indigenous  artist Mirree Louise Bayliss.

#22  Found at the Beach.

#23  Words.

#24  Washi Tape.

#25  Opposites.

My opposites Up and Down where done with the mask opposite!  Whoops!

 #26  Bald Eagle.

 #27   Mozart's Birthday.

It's a fun list developed from all kinds of lists the host found on line as well as important US and Canada Dates.
