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.
