Hi Everyone....and a big thank you to all the people who have recently signed up to follow my blog. I'm very behind (as usual) but I wanted to take a moment to acknowledge you and to say I appreciate it. I'm always amazed that anyone wants to read my blog....but I'm happy that you do!
Not much exciting going on today. It's too hot to do much but stay inside. We're into triple digits now and I'm sure we'll most likely stay there for the better part of the summer. Ah, such is life in the high desert of Southern California!
So far I'm staying with my goal of a small piece of art each day. We'll see how long it lasts! I did art journal pages for about six months straight and then just stopped. I'm sure that will happen with these, too. My brain only stays with something so long and then it has to move on.
This little piece is 6" x 6" and I named it Yesterday I Loved You. I don't have a clue what it means but that was the first thing that popped into my head when I thought of a name.
I had several of these little pieces lined up on our mantel and was surprised at how many I've done with this red/orange/yellow color palette. You all know my all-time favorite color is purple so one would expect me to create in that color but I don't! Maybe it is the heat that is causing me to gravitate towards the hot colors. I don't know but I sure seem to be stuck on those colors. I need to break out of this and use something else.
This one will be going into my etsy shop later today.
Yesterday I did venture out to the patio for a few quick minutes of spray painting. This is the result....
These will probably be cut or torn up to use in other art. It's a good, fast, easy way to get some texture and interest and added layers. I need to get some new spray paint colors. I'm getting tired of the ones I have. I love that lime green color, and there's actually some purple in there someplace....you can just barely see some of it in the next picture....
And there's that infamous pink glass of ice water sitting there on my work table! You'd think as bright as it is I could avoid it but as I showed a few days ago, that isn't always the case.
Ok, I'm off to play some more! I have something a little different that I'm working on today. I hope you have a good day and that it isn't too hot where you are....
