Oh my goodness, it's June already! Well, I had a fun time creating mermaids for Mermay in May! My daughter in law even baked me an amazing mermaid birthday cake to celebrate the end of Mermay!

|My ICAD Cover Card|
I have begun my favorite challenge, Daisy Yellow Art’s Index Card A Day Creative Challenge which runs for 61 days, from 1 June through 1 July. I create art every day and this year am writing and illustrating a mystery called “Farley’s Fairies and the Mystery of the Little Cottage.” I write a little tidbit every day and at the end of 61 days, I should have quite a story, ha ha! I hope I can put it all into a little book, complete with coloring pages when done. You too can join the ICAD Challenge by reviewing the prompts on the Daisy Yellow Art website and joining the FaceBook Group to see and post your art. Click HERE for the web page. It's not a competition, it's a creative challenge. As written before on my blog, I've learned alot about my art during these challenges and made many wonderful life-long friends from around the world! This is my fourth year and so far, I've finished every one. It does take dedication and I've found that trying to limit my time daily helps, although I'll admit that some days I do more than planned. Although I draw my cards, many collage and create more abstract index cards. It's all good!

|Anatomy and Face Practice|
I located a wonderful guide on the internet to drawing the human body and so have been practicing, although I found that I prefer the wonky folk-art style humans I've been drawing. I'm also practicing faces. This little art page is the result of my first works on these subjects. Click HERE for the original link written by Joumana Medlej. I'm also reminded of my YouTube video on drawing faces, it is simple but effective and gives good practice.Click HERE to access this free video.
