I was alternating between on 2 large canvases and needed to let them both dry. I decided to do an impromptu floral inspired by Lauren's from January 20th (artwork and art play) I got so engrossed with the flowers that my composition got rather lop sided - the upper left shows the ghosts that I had to subdue - the poor pot was definitely going to tip over!!

I did these as demonstrations of a layering technique that uses a mono print, layers of Gac 100, washes/glazes of Golden fluids and a masking technique. They are 7 1/2" x 11" on watercolour paper. These were fun to do and let me play with different container shapes.

My friend Patti and I are playing Scrabble online and in between - running off to paint :-)
We have more snow again - this year it has built up to about this much and then melted completely, three times now.
I have finished the "jug" painting and also think this one is close - I'll give it a couple of days.

I was going for the feel of flotsam in the water, washing onto the beach

I recently was asked to make a presentation on gels and pastes to a local group. I created several samples and when I was putting things in order after the presentation, this one caught my eye - I added colour and texture and here it is! The label was for the presentation and still shows.
