CBC Day 9

Day 9 random word prompt
Drizzle
Well, I had a good run, 8 days of creating and I was really pleased with all my work! Day 9 dawns and I've hit a brick wall! I just could not think outside the box on this one, it didn't inspire me at all, no reflection on your word maegan, its all me!
I thought I'd try the oils again as they worked well with the jellyfish but heres what happened..
1 1/2 hours later and I've got a very childlike picture that im not happy with at all! My oil pastels would not blend today no matter what I did. So I thought I'd just try again before the kids got home from school...

The page on the left is ok but I don't feel it represents drizzle, and the other page just doesn't work for me either. Im trying not to stress about my lost mojo, this is supposed to be fun after all but I am a teeny bit disapointed with my efforts today. Heres hoping my mojo sneaks back into the house tonight while im sleeping, all ready for a fresh start tomorrow!

I really enjoyed your interpretation today!It shows the effort and hard work. its nice to see different avenues of art. Never stress over things like this- yesterday was one day, today another, and tomorrow is open for suggestions lol. Its a very catchy pic!

I like both of these! But I understand exactly where you're coming from and it can be such a frustrating feeling. Often times when I don't like a piece, I'll put it away for a day or so and come back to it. And it's almost always better than I remembered it.

I felt the very same way but I so badly wanted to get at least ONE day of Boot Camp completed that I submitted a very rushed interpretation. You are so very talented I really love everything about it! Inspiring :)

I don't think you should be disappointed - your first attempt made me smile - the bright colors made me happy. Then I scrolled down and loved the second attempt.
