Poor Aunt Penny

Sometimes it is just fun to play with color and patterns.  I painted these ants on 140 lb cold press Khadi paper with Winsor & Newton watercolors:


And then I made up this silly poem:

I remember my poor Aunt Penny,

Who loved squishing ants with her tennies,

Until one day,

The ants carried her away,

When she stepped on one too many!


I hope you get “carried away” creating art today!  Happy Saturday!  🙂

  4. Making even ants look fun! Yes, it looks like it could easily be a print fabric. A summer tablecloth, perhaps. (K)
