There are three layers in this yellow. Quin Gold, Yellow Ochre and Jaune Yellow. It scanned true. The Quin Gold settled into the paper, and created delicate… freckles. This top part was painted first, wet on slightly damp paper. The Indigo was wet paint on dry paper.
I cropped this piece digitally, to postcard proportions. Which do you prefer?
The work in progress has a few more layers. Deepened the light areas. Does that make sense? I covered more of the white, while attempting to keep the light.
Good stuff Maynard!! Snail mail surprise! I ordered two small Carry-All pouches from my Society6 shop.They are meant to be gifts, but I really want to keep them for myself. Ha ha. I am so happy with the quality of these little bags. The material is heavy-duty and there is a small pocket in the lining. The colors are true to the original artwork. The pattern in the vase is even visible!

A small brown paper package found its way to my mailbox.
Inside, this wonderful work of art!
Did you notice the little bird?
I just love the simple marks, and warm colors. I can tell Michelle had fun making this!
This tiny pop-up arrived as well.
I just love this little card. So cute! It made me think of a Cracker Jack prize. Remember how excited you were to find it? I don’t know who thought these up, but I think they are the bee’s knees!
Thank you Michelle! Your joyful gifts made me smile!
Today I am thankful for real mail, new friends, Pete home from the hospital, and Mom’s turkey soup! Also most grateful for the weekend’s sales in my Society6 shop! Well, that’s just a start.
What are you thankful for today?
