Just Kidding

The pouty one in the middle is me - on my 1st grade birthday.
At an Artfest at least five years ago, I took a class from Lynn Whipple that to this day remains one of my all-time favorite classes. Despite serious intent to make many more, I haven't done so yet, but the original still amuses me and makes me smile. It was created on canvas paper. Using acrylics with old or new photos, we made houses. These kids are from black-and-white photos from my stash of family photos.

All 3 in the same sky at the same time!
This was a day that never knew what it wanted it to be. One hour blue sky, no clouds, the next hour, gray overcast-wheres-the-sun, the next, a serendipitous palette. Skies and sunsets screaming to be remembered in watercolor textures. This has been our typical day this September, much wetter than usual. What a funny weather year this has been here.

More uses for those National Geographics!

Diana Trout has a good video on using CitraSolve orange cleaner to make interesting backgrounds. This is her helpful blog.
