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 Pink Cloud World

I was going to take a little blogging break… but I had so much fun creating art yesterday that I had to share it with you!!  🙂

I started making pink clouds for Carla Sonheim’s new year-long class that I told you about here.

It was snowing yesterday which inspired me to create this haiku for my hand-stenciled pink clouds:

And then one idea snowballed into another… hehe…

The above one was created with a variety of mixed mediums such as fluid acrylics and watercolors.  I then started layering patterns with my small 3 x 5 inch Gelli-Plate, using it like a stamp.

I couldn’t stop with just one!  So I created another sheet and added a few other colors with my handmade stamps:

I was getting tired but didn’t want to waste paint on my brayer.. so it led me to create this piece:

And then try a collage using paper I made for my clouds:

It says, “In a pink cloud world – everyone has rosy pink cheeks – And no one gets sick with disease like cancer or dementia.”

I know it is wishful thinking but we can all dream BIG in a Pink Cloud World!

Happy New Year!!  Cheers!  🙂
