A Coat of Many Colors

I was inspired by a beautiful photo of a sunrise that Debi Riley took to start my collage – be sure to check out Debi’s blog at:  http://debiriley.com/2016/01/21/wild-morning-sky/

Debi is a very talented watercolor artist!  She also has some excellent painting tips on her blog.

The cloud shapes in her photo reminded me a little of cotton candy.  So I started cutting out circles from my painted papers in blues, purples, pinks, oranges, reds and a touch of light blue and green.  Here is my result:

The size is 9 x 12 inches.  As I was pasting my circles to my paper with a glue stick, I listened to the album, “Somewhere” by Eva Cassidy.

One of my favorite songs on that album is “A Coat of Many Colors.”  I like Dolly Parton singing it too but Eva is my favorite!

Check out this YouTube video with Eva Cassidy:

Enjoy your day!
