dailycreating NOVEMBER 2019

As I've said in many posts, I am part of a wonderful caring group on Facebook called #dailycreating. Hosted by Visual Artist and Creative Encourager Terry Runyan, the purpose of this group is to encourage members to create something every day.

Each Sunday, Terry publishes a week's worth of prompts for the upcoming seven days. Since the prompts are optional, many of the members go their own way, which is great, since they are CREATING. I am one of the members who depend on the prompts. It's like being given an assignment each day, one that I almost always follow, with only a few exceptions over the year and a half I've been part of the group. (I just finished my drawing #549 with this group.)

Some days, I love the prompts and can hardly wait to get to work on them. Other days, not so much. Once in awhile, the prompt just doesn't resonate with me. If I just cannot connect with the prompt, I will draw something else. But that is rare.

Today I will share with you my favorite drawings from November 2019. It's fun to go back through my sketchbooks to choose those to post. Some months it is difficult to find drawings that I deem good enough to share with the public. This month, I didn't have any trouble coming up with ten to share. In fact, a few of them happen to be my all time favorite drawings. 

As always, I will note the prompt for each of the drawings above each of them, along with any further information I may have, such as breed.

#dogurday
norfolk terrier

 #hedgehog

 #dogurday
airedale terrier

 #totempole

#birds
asian glossy starling

 #favoriteanimal
fox

 #littleredwagon

 #dogurday
border collie

 #worldpeace

 #thingonthing
the red thing on the turkey's beak is a snood

There you have it. Obviously I am sort of partial to drawing animals. For today's prompt, I get to draw a pig. I'm excited!

I should point out once again that when I show #dogurday as the prompt, Saturdays are always either #dogurday or #caturday. Since I'm not particularly adept at drawing cats, I usually opt for dogs.

THE SMALL PRINT: Please respect that these are my personal original drawings and cannot be used in any way whatsoever without my express permission. Thanks.

  5. Wow, all your drawings are beautiful.....you have a lot of talent....and it is good you are doing something creative like drawing daily. Practice makes perfect....as the old saying goes, and if you don't use it...you lose it, as the other old saying goes.
    So good for you! Happy Drawing and card making! You do both very well.
    Blessings, Nellie

  7. Wow! I wish I could draw like this! I used to do a better-than-mediocre horse, but that was about the extent of my abilities. These are amazing - you have some real talent - and a lot of hard work!

  12. Linda, you are so talented! I love to draw animals too. Before being home bound I took my first art class since I was a kid. Trying my hand now at acrylic painting and just finished one of my beloved Scottie dog.
