Mug Giveaway!!!

While I have certainly had activity here and on Facebook and Instagram, I am not getting y’all to my store! So it is definitely time to show off some of my products with a giveaway!

So here is the deal, you comment here on your favorite mug design at my store and you will be entered to win one of five mugs! You can also enter at my facebook page and my twitter site, @kendall_shop, and my instagram, kendallstewartsartshop, if you feel more comfortable at one of these places. Here is an example of one of my mugs:

Now each mug has its own design and may come in different colors, so don’t forget to put that on your entry as well. I’ll contact you on the 19th of August 2020 to let you know you have won. And I will contact you, obviously, via the platform you voted in. And there will be absolutely no charges! I will pay shipping and handling as well! If anyone asks you for money on my behalf or on the behalf of my company, Kendall Stewart’s Art Shop, it is NOT me!

Back To an Old Medium

So yesterday I tested the waters with my old pastel/acrylic mix. I wasn’t all that satisfied with the results, and I didn’t do all that I used to do with the acrylic, but I want to give it another go. I’ve got some different pictures of the same model, a muskox, and I’m hoping I learned a little. We’ll see how it goes when I get a chance to breathe, that will be Thursday I hope.

YouTube Site…I Made a Video!

I don’t really know whether to be scared or nervous or excited about this one! Me on camera, left to my own devices. Hmm. So, the two things I do wrong are: I don’t look at the camera enough and I say “um” a lot! But otherwise I don’t suppose it is too bad.

An Introduction

I don’t have any products yet to share with everyone, but I hope that by the time I do my next video I will. I do wish I understood how to edit the video. I don’t like that you see me getting up and down to turn the camera on and off. Editing that out would be nice.

Mostly I talk about how I got started in art and what I have done and am doing. I talk a little about my grandmother, the most creative person I have ever known. And I share some of my older paintings and drawings as well. I hope you will check it out and enjoy!

And remember to visit my store to see what I have. The promo code “myblog” is active through the 9th. That’s 10% off. So come check it out.

“Sparrows” In Pencil

I have been taking an online art course for what seems like forever. I’ve just been moving slowly. And actually to be more specific it’s a drawing course. I have had some success in the past with acrylics and pastels, but I thought learning to draw would help me improve and I have wanted to try watercolor so drawing really would benefit that. (My English teachers would have a fit over that run-on sentence!) Anyway I was out for a walk with my dog when I saw some bluebirds on a fence. It wasn’t this kind of fence or these birds it just kind of egged me on. And to top it off it is nothing of what I am working on in the class, it was just what I felt like doing! I thought it turned out pretty well. Comments? Don’t beat me up too badly! Ha!
