my experimental art group had a swap. we each brought
supplies, ephemerah, fabric and other materials
for a swap. we were not to bring anything back home.
i got this painted canvas. it's quite a nice
start, don't you think?
i wish i took more process photos but here it is
part way through after i added more paint and
and the end result is my first mermaid. i have been surrounded
by the pacific ocean all of my life as well as taking a recent
trip to many distant ports. i enjoyed the challenge of starting
with colors i don't normally use and making it mine.
i have been away on a dream trip and i will share a few photos.
i was busy sightseeing, eating and drinking in all of the
sights that i did not take as many pictures as usual. but
i returned home with memories of destinations of places
that i have wanted to see and a full heart.
i travel light--one carry one for almost 3 weeks.
i had clothes that i didn't wear and will
take even less the next time. friends call
me the packing queen....i work at it.
i share this post today with paint party friday.
for those of you you who are visiting today,
welcome and thank you for taking your time.
a lovely summer weekend to all!
