Making Some Crappy Art and Playing Around...

My techie lessons are not going so good! I think I must be the dullest knife in the drawer when it comes to this stuff. But I did get a new header made even though it has some mistakes.

During the rest of my time I've been doing a little bit of art...
mostly crappy art!


I did another flower painting...Red Vase 2...but I got too carried away with the flowers and it looks like a big mess. I might gesso over it and start again with less flowers.

I also messed around with one of my other paintings. I had it printed at a print shop and I used one of the prints to change the color of her head wrap...this is what the original looked like...


And here's the other version...
I just painted over the print
and gave her a red head wrap.


I'm not sure which one I like best.
Other than that, I've not been doing much in the studio.

Thank you for all your kind comments on the post about my mother. I'm not much of a writer but I think I could have written twice as much as I did. Sometimes the words just seem to flow and that was how it was with that post. I'm glad you enjoyed it. Maybe I'll do some others like that at a later date.
