One Tough Old Bird

I decided to change things up today and create a weird bird with scraping paint, like the technique I showed you previously, here: Scraping Paint…

And I wrote a Limerick:

There once was an old bird from Bend,

Whose wild hair stood up on end,

She did have some charm,

With hens on the farm,

Who crowned her Queen of Hair Trends!


Happy Weird Bird Wednesday!

May your hair look fabulous today!

Cheers! 🙂

Seeing Pink

Yesterday, I did a little printing on my Gelli-Plate – and maybe it was the color of the plastic table cloth…


But I was SEEING pink!  🙂


Maybe it was because I took a photo of these pretty pink roses in my yard before Jack Frost arrived:


Or seeing these blushing blueberry bushes:


I was definitely seeing PINK!


I’d love to hear how nature inspires you in your art making – I hope you share it with me!

Cheers! 🙂

A Sunny Face – Part 1

I love how sunflowers face the sun!  They have such a sunny face…  :-)))

I was experimenting with Golden fluid acrylic paint and F&W acrylic ink for my abstract sunflower on 300 lb cold press paper:

sunflower - 1

I then added some Neocolor II watersoluble wax pastels:

sunflower - 2

And softened the wax pastels with some water:

sunflower - 3

I used bubble wrap to sponge on some white paint for the “seeds.”

For Part 2 – tomorrow, I will add some definition with a black marker.  I hope you will join me!

Hope you have a sunny day!  🙂

P.S.  Please forgive me if I am behind commenting on your blog!  I am super duper busy at work at the moment training an AWESOME new employee!  I hope to catch up on the weekend.  xo
