I've been playing around with some quick projects. Art can let us escape into our own little worlds if even for just a short time.
Trying gouache and using magazine pages for inspiration. For years I have torn out pictures from magazines and saved them in folders. I always like the illustrations that I see people doing of food.
The problem is that I tear out the photos and not the descriptions, so sometimes I have to guess at what the foods are.
What makes them interesting to me is that sometimes they are fruits and vegetables that I don't recognize.
I got a wonderful book of Mark Hearld's work and got a lot of inspiration for stamp carving from it. And finally, here is a photo of my husband and I on our anniversary last May.
I'm posting it because he has been ill and ended up in the hospital. He is home now, but he has a ways to go before he will be 100% again. So please send a few prayers out way.

Holidays in sunny Florida--really have nothing to do with this post-but nice photo, right? After 394 Posts, 5539 comments and 326 followers (how many of you are actually left?) I had to delete everything on my blog and start over. I got a smartphone in early December, which wasn't so smart after all (or maybe it was just the operator-LOL) and being an android phone it sucked all the photos off of my blog into the gallery on my phone. Who knew to turn off "sync"? I have it turned off now. Anyway didn't do much creating after we lost our little Sparky in September, so with the new year, it seemed it was the time to redo the blog and start again. I do hope if you are still out there, you will comment, so I know I'm not alone here.
