I like the serendipitous results I get when painting over a collaged surface but have to be careful not
to "work around" interesting little tidbits and forsaking the integrity of the composition. Still it does create a little bit of interest. The following details is an example of what I managed to keep in the painting and will probably lend itself to the title "New Beginnings"
A new local event that was most successful (a little rain at the end of the day but it was a welcomed, warm summer rain). Fun to do but now it's on to planning the next which take place the third week of November. I often question my planning tactics as I approach a deadline but realize that I can
never be completely in control because all the good stuff happens from the creative frenzy that takes place. Good ideas just seem to abound and I have to take advantage of them as they appear.
I had planned on posting more this month of September and it's racing by. I don't usually do a Fall fair but this time I am in an event called "Boheme". It is outdoors in tents and so hoping for good weather.
The website theydrawandcook.com has inspired me to return to watercolour painting. This is my newest. A late summer submission celebrating the joy of kitchen gardens. The format for "They Draw and Cook" is a wide narrow rectangle so I usually re-format into 8" x 10" formats to put into my Etsy shop. I love cooking, love painting, love painting flowers...so it's a win/win situation.
