Happy that I got to do some art today!! Here near Seattle, we have had some serious rain even by our standards. It’s been a rainy, drizzly spring. Today I made collage paintings inspired by the science of weather and the hope of sunny days to come.
I’ve been working on some new imagery for some cedar plank plaques. Sometimes we visit the Chateau Ste. Michelle winery just to see the beautiful peacocks that live on the grounds. I have yet to hear their loud cry but from what I understand, they can make quite a racket.
Blue birdy flying over a color field in blue. The background was made with collage and pastels that I smeared with my finger. I love how the colors changed and bled when I painted them with matte medium. Looks like watercolor but isn’t.
I wanted to make a set of note cards for my daughter’s teachers for holiday gifts. I was inspired by these nice ladies and the colorful bird imagery resulted. I gave two of each design for a total of six.
