I covered the backside with several different colors of Pelikan opaque watercolors
and then pressed them onto two pages of my Moleskin sketchbook.
We were pleasantly surprised with the great progress that Charles and Patrick, our painters, had made during our brief absence. Things are beginning to come together and we love it!! This is the wall where the rubber tree used to crawl:
Here is another view looking from the livingroom into the diningroom and kitchen:
There is just enough of the new wall color in the stacked stone, that you now really notice it. It is so warm, comfortable, and inviting!
And last but not least, here is "Pieces of Grace", my latest in my Grace series:
I've just placed the quilt on top of the treated rusted corrugated tin....can't decide if it needs to go this way, or if the really rusty part should be on the bottom. All of you art folks need to leave a comment and tell me which is best. I like how the steeple in the lower right came out, but now that I look at it, I think the long, skinny stained glass window photo transfer should be in the upper left hand corner. I wanted to keep the two stained glass windows separate. Hmmmmm! Critiques please.............and you know I want you to be honest!
I'm having some separation anxiety issues over going to the SDA Conference in Kansas City! I'm really excited about going, rooming with Gerrie, taking a class with Kerr, and just being there, but leaving Barker, C, and the house during this upheaval are eating at me! I guess that's part of being a Taurus/Gemini person!
HOPE YOU'RE PAINTING UP A STORM!
