I started a series of these abstract landscape postcards. I have about a dozen 4 x 6 “scraps” from larger sheets.  To be honest, my mojo is taking a siesta. I thought, “How bad can I screw up a simple postcard?” HA! Ha ha ha.

Out of eleven, I think I have three good ones. Not too bad of a batting average. Not great, but not bad. I think. I won’t do the math on that one.

It does mean that I can say I am two days ahead. Woo Whoo! But I will likely keep painting, and hoping for something better. I’ve got three busy days next week and that means my posts will continue to be sporadic.

My first #21 was this abstract collage. Well, it was abstract until I decided to put flowers on it. The start was just me getting every last drop of paint off my brush (from day 20). It was like the energizer bunny, it just kept going, and going, and going.

This started with the same dot pattern that was in Day 23. The “leaf” pattern was there as well, but in a soft peach color. (Scroll down to see.) I added 3 or 4 layers of very wet acrylic using a palette knife to spread  the paint. There is collage, the heart shape had words, and there is a long strip on the left. Tissue top and bottom.

I kept the paint thin, to allow the previous layers to show. But somewhere a long the way, the words were lost. Interestingly, some of the polka dots, the first layer, are showing thru full color. How weird is that?  The vase is Neocolor II. Thinking I might go back and “wash” some of that away, to show more of the texture.

Snowed today. Mingus disappeared. On and off for most of the afternoon. It didn’t really stick, but late tonight I noticed there was a light dusting. I think that is all we’re going to get. But my fingers are crossed for more .

It’s been awhile since I painted sunflowers. I am missing them. So for today, late to the challenge, sunflowers. I have two more canvas panels started. But I am feeling like I want to do some straight watercolor. Tomorrow’s painting will be a surprise for you and I both!

For drawing three, the day was #20, and the comment from that day was #6.

Congratulations Sharon Kullberg!

Let me know which of these you would like!
Thanks everyone, for following along!
One more drawing this month!
