I saved the pristine cardboard liner from a box of cat food and grabbed a few Prismacolor pencils and scribbled a portrait of the lovely :iconfaestock:

I honestly love what you did with the prisnacolors to make things more vivid. It looks beautiful what you did with he drawing and the piece of cardboard.

Sensational! Glad I'm not the only one who finds a canvas on everyday trash. My favorite are straw-wrappers.

Great job!!

Thanks a lot!

Straw-wrappers, huh? Not a lot of surface area for art, I would think!

Okay...I checked your gallery and THERE THEY ARE. Nice! :dance:

You're welcome.

Nope, not a lot of surface area. So you have to make due with what you have.

Thank you!

You always have the "touch"

Every once in a while we come across a perfect drawing or painting surface in a most unexpected places... Gotta love accidental art supplies.

Thank you, sir; I appreciate the comment!

Yeah, those unexpected surfaces are SO helpful when one needs to stop thinking too much about making Art with a capital A. Easy to just get on with it and play a bit when it's something you would normally throw away.

Yeah, it is funny how we can let go of a lot of expectations when we remove the preciousness of the materials.
Hope all is well.
