I found myself behind, working on my Spoonflower challenge entry. These next four were done in one sitting. Painted, and then digitally collaged. I wasn’t very happy with them in the beginning, but they have grown on me. I did enjoy the process. They have received wonderful compliments within the gathering. It always helps to “see” through the eyes of others. 🙂

So hard to believe we are already at the halfway marker. I am thoroughly enjoying this round. I have finally reached the point, where I am not stressing myself over the outcome. I really tried to get ahead, because I knew I was going to be busy designing as well. But catching up from behind, that’s not so bad. 😉

Thanks so much for following along. Your interest is a blessing! 🙏

Happy Weekend Friends

Late night watercolor play. I resisted the urge to fill in the shapes completely, and outline. I added interest with a texture sheet. What do you think… unfinished, or rustic?

I have a handful of small paper scraps that need using. I have decided I need to paint fairly large. 6 x 6 to 12 x12 seems to be good for me. Maybe I should say my eyes and hands have made the decision for me. LOL. It’s getting harder to paint small details.

We’ve had perfect puffy clouds the last couple of days. I wanted to paint the sky.

Enjoying my small paper play. I hope you can find time for the things you enjoy this weekend.

I thank you God
for this most amazing day,
for the leaping greenly spirits of trees,
and for the blue dream of sky
and for everything which is natural,
which is infinite,
which is yes.
E. E. Cummings

The sky is the limit.
You never have the same experience twice.

I thank my God every time I remember you.
In all my prayers for all of you, I always pray with joy.
(Philippians 1:3-4)

The art of being happy
lies in the power
of extracting happiness
from common things.
