I started this one a few weeks ago. It’s good that I’m trying to post some art every Monday because it makes me sit down and work. This one has the three figures in it but they were put in intentionally.
I wasn’t feeling inspired much. Took a walk with my husband and found this little bird wing. I’m hoping it’s just a piece from the bird and that the bird is still okay. It was a beautiful little find so I had to do a drawing.
Lovely weather here in New Jersey. I hope everyone has a good week. Nina
I found myself sitting down and doing a bit of painting over the weekend. I’m running out of rocks so got some of them going:
I used ArtSet for iPad for the first time in a while. I drew this landscape using my forefinger.
All in all a good weekend. Have a good week! Nina
A painting that started out as something else and became another of these painting with three figures: unintentional. I am sheltering in place with my husband and daughter and somehow the three configuration gets into my painting.
I hope everyone has a good week. Nina
This painting has been in progress for a few weeks. There was a large pink area that I didn’t know what to do with. One sleepless night I thought “tornados” so I put them in. Turns out it looked better upside down so the tornados are more like giant trees.
I am going to try to paint some tornados next, though.
I stayed out of work today to observe Yom Kippur, the day of atonement. I wanted to get a batch of rocks to post because I’ve been pretty good about posting on Monday. And I’ve made it by 45 minutes.
I also finished a painting tonight I think. I’ve been working on it for a few weeks and it started coming together. I will post it tomorrow.
To all, I wish the best. Nina
It was a nice fall weekend here and I did some art work: a couple of paintings and another batch of rocks.
You can’t really tell but I painted these rocks a dark gray, not black. They need one more coat of matte fixative and then they’ll be ready to give away. I keep some in my drawer at work to give out. People are surprised when I hand them one.
Hope it’s a good week for everyone. Nina
This rock has been sitting on my table for a few months now. It wasn’t until I posted the drawing of three figures that I realized this rock was also a representation (however subliminal) of my family.
It’s been a philosophical time for me as we head into the Jewish High Holy days. My job requires utter patience and kindness, turning the other cheek often. I seek to be a good and kind person.
Stress is a common theme and I guess I unconsciously painted the three figures on the rock-me, husband, daughter. Crazy people but my crazy people. My rock(s).
Shana Tova to all who celebrate and stay safe.
I’ve been doing these drawings starting with a swoop of a few blobs of paint with a large paintbrush.
My daughter doesn’t really pay much attention to my artwork. She looked at this one and said “this is our family”. Me, husband, daughter and daughter’s dog…I did not do this intentionally.
Where did this come from? The figures: a Keith Haring rip-off. The swoop I’ve been doing I copied from a TikTok artist (it is a lot of fun to do). But the content came purely from my unconscious mind. I’m sure of it.
There is so much terrifying stuff going on-not to me personally, but in the world, and everyone is affected. A generation of kids-especially the really young ones-are missing out on the beauty of going to school. Fires raging in our country and on the island of Lesbos, displacing thousands of people. I am pretty old but I wonder: will it be okay?

Happy Draw a Bird day!
Gouache on black paper. The paper doesn’t take the paint that well but I don’t care, I’m just messing around.
I also had to make a new batch of rocks. I put a bunch out in the neighborhood and gave away some of my special ones. I reverted back to the black and multicolor wonky mandala designs which I find very relaxing.
Have a good week!
