ICAD Day 61: Peacock Feather

ICAD Day 61: Peacock Feather

Inspired by a painting by Vicky Ink.


Today is the last day of the Index-Card-a-Day Challenge and World Watercolor Month. For 61 days (okay, in the interest of full disclosure, I missed six days) I created a little piece of art  just big enough to fit on an index card. It was a stretch for me, and some pieces were a lot less successful than the others, but 55 little artworks in the space of two months is a lifetime record for me. Fun, and challenging, to be sure–and it proved to me that I can acquire a new skill, even at my advanced age.

Search for the hashtags #icad2016 and #WorldWatercolorMonth on social media if you would like so see what other participants are doing.

    • Thanks, Betty. I’m kind of torn–I’d like to keep going with these index cards, but I’m also not as far ahead on my blog posts as I’d like to be, and with NaNoWriMo only three months away, I want to start outlining my next novel. Priorities. I’d to continue painting, but on real watercolor paper–index cards are too thirsty. The paint dries in seconds, and it’s hard to achieve that watery look. I’ll have to figure out how I can schedule in all these wonderful activities. You just can’t do every good thing.
