Hey Friends, I'm posting the latest work first because I'm afraid I'll get in trouble with DPW. They (DPW) pull the first image on your blog to post on their site in my gallery. Hope that makes since. Anyway a couple times I've just blogged about what's going on (nothing for sale) and some one made a comment about it being a photo and not a painting. So just to be safe I'm doing it this way from now on. Maybe. The painting above just sort of grew from beginning with the piece of green paper with the musical notes on it. It actually came in the mail as a postcard invitation to a concert. You can see in the real piece that I stitched on it with a sewing machine before gelling it on the canvas panel. Another piece of the GranBabes music sheets, real oat grass from the yard and a feather stencil and silk flowers. And I'll put this in my Etsy shop.
And today I met up with my painting buddies here in Salem, Va. to enjoy a drizzly day, chatting and painting under the picnic shelter. Enjoyed every minute.
