Did a 10 day challenge at the beginning of November. Ready to share my squares now that the house series is done. For those who saw them in my stories in real time, I hope you enjoy the replay 😉 Also, thank you to @meldoty.art for hosting the squareathon. It was a lot of fun!!

Not sure why... #lighthouse made me think of 70s "bodice ripper"- type romance novels with a #hauntedlighthouse, but I didn't have the stomach for an actual ripped bodice... .

"First the worst
Second the best
Third the golden bird"
-My middle child says it when he doesn't win. This #gold #square is #gouache, including the #metallic gold, a new favourite art supply. I can reconstitute it with water if it dries on the pallette while I'm working! 5cm x 5cm .

No surprise, I love world #mythology. Man-eating monster with gods-given powers??? I'm there! Why so late? This past week was "fall break" from school, and sometimes it's kids or art. 5cm x 5cm. .

Day 10 #melssat prompt -lighthouse. Anyone else love watching the huge waves crash against the sea wall while the lighthouse is hard at work?

Day 9: COLLECTIONS
Just squeaking this one in. I admit I put this one off — I struggled figuring out what to draw. I finally settled on a re-creation of the shelves in our first house holding my husband’s book collection. My husband is a fanatical reader, and we have shelves full of books all over. The clock was a gift from him many years ago. It’s no longer working but we still have it on the mantle in our current house, because the shelves are too full to hold it anymore. 🕰📚❤️

Day 7 & 8 Mythology & Gold. The golden apple is found in Greek and Norse mythology. @meldoty.art Fall Squareathon

Day 8: GOLD
My nerves are shot, but I did it! After spending several days simultaneously drawing this mandala and practicing with my brushes, I took the plunge this morning and did some detail painting in gold acrylic on this piece. I’ve never tried to do this before, and the thought of spending days working on it just to ruin it with a bad brush stroke was pretty scary. It’s not perfect, but I’m pretty happy with my first real attempt. 😊 (Only the circle and seed shapes are gold acrylic, the larger “gold” areas were filled in with a @prismacolor goldenrod marker.)

Day 7: MYTHOLOGY
Admission: This was not my favorite subject in high school. 😑 But Louisville, KY has a Pegasus Parade just prior to the Derby every year, so I decided to attempt a simple version of that image. (This guy is a composite of several I found in my Google search.) Yes, I’ll admit I took the “efficient” way out and kept it very simple. @meldoty.art might appreciate this description today... 😜

Day 7 #melssat
Prompt-mythology
Mari Lwyd the Welsh tradition of celebrating the change in the seasons at New Year by parading a puppet made from a horses skull & decorated with ribbons and bells. He tries to enter pubs and homes by reciting a verse (long story) look it up, but it hopefully brings good luck.

Day 6: CLOTHES/OUTFIT
Winter is coming... so I thought you might need some mittens. (And this is about all I can draw for this prompt! 😂) Full disclosure: I don’t watch “Game of Thrones,” but my hubby does... 🗡🧤

Day 5: REFELECTIONS
I started this piece yesterday with a sunset background in mind. Then I got to this point and stopped — go further or leave it as is? I made a few copies and played with both a sunset and a mountain range before I decided to sleep on it last night. I may go back later and experiment more with the mountain idea, but today I’m kind of loving this minimalist look and don’t want to risk ruining it by not stopping when my gut says to... 🤔
