Puzzled out…..

We are well on our way to puzzle this whole thing out!  I did get the base colors on and started to draw on my puzzle pieces.  While waiting for coats of paint to dry, I kept looking for  something that would kick start my creative flow.  I found a black and white picture of puzzle pieces spilled out half hazardously.  It was the impetus that I needed to get going.


I am not crazy about the blue, so that is gonna change.  The puzzle pieces are taking a while, I am using a regular pencil to draw each piece on.  I am hoping that I have the shadows in the right places.  That really is the tricky part, to keep reminding myself that the light is on my right, so the shadows are on my left and underneath each piece.

So far I am pleased with the progress.  My fingers need a break, old joints are protesting holding a pencil for so long, LOL.  Will keep at it and see where it takes me…….. Cyn





About designbycyn

Sonoma County, California ceramic enthusiasts Cyn and Steven Gradek have worked in the clay medium since 1996. They had a retail store where they held classes and provided the essentials for fellow ceramic enthusiasts. The business evolved into producing for other retail outlets and artist. Which quickly grew and they closed the retail storefront and concentrated on the wholesale business. With their 3 children raised and on their own, they had time to pursue their own creativity. Cyn learned how to embroider from her Grandma Cirner at a young age. After that she found sewing, cross stitching, crocheting, well you get the jist, LOL. She hasn't met a craft that she hasn't liked. Blogging was suggested by her youngest daughter, Colleen. At first it was a battle to get her to try it, but eventually Cyn started to enjoy the exercise. The blog on Cyn's website designbycyn.com was limiting, so Colleen got her started with Wordpress. Hope you enjoy her Adventures with Creativity!
