|2 new gourd birds|
It's been a busy time. My wonderful grandson is now 10 years old and we spent a long weekend in Florida celebrating.
Friends came and we spent a day in Legoland and some time just hanging out.
I got some work done this week - no painting, but some "stuff".
The treasure bottle was started on a day I was feeling cranky. I had covered the bottle in vintage paper - but I don't do vintage well. So - I started over with brighter paper. And then decided to make it ugly to fit my mood. However, I started having fun, gluing on all the crazy things I had saved over the years. It's a work in progress - and it's just for me! I got 2 more gourd birds done - a very small one and a much larger one. I have sold 2 of the bunch I made before!
Below is a portrait I did - using Pam Carriker's Mixed Media Portraits. I am using source portraits because I really want to see what I see when looking at a face. The Pan Pastel coloring was a bit haphazard - but aside from that - I am pleased. I am linking to Paint Party Friday as usual - thanks to Eva and Kristen for their work in keeping the site going. Thanks so much for visiting - have a blessed and art filled weekend.
