. . . worked small yesterday




trying to make a little magic with ink and paint. Although I believe I am already on the right track, I should probably go back and try to find the rest of the book that tells about the "secret of a happy life." This piece is a 4 x 6" matboard, with different paints built up from other pieces I have done. I glued on a few stray pieces of text, grabbed an old wooden printer piece of the letter g, and used various bits of texturing material to stamp. I feel like it's done, so I will put it away somewhere so that I won't be tempted to mess with it more. You gotta know when to quit, right?


Winter is blasting us here in the KC area yet again. Sleet, snow, rain, thundersnow, etc. But yesterday, I saw the shoots of daffodils peeking through the layer of ice pellets, and there are other perennials greening up in the garden. Spring will show up sooner or later.

I have also been working small lately-- mostly for a collage exchange-- your piece is nicely textured

hello again Mary - I haven't had a chance to follow blogs while I've been travelling but in the last week now and you reminded me of the weather ahead of me - I have been enjoying temps between 22 anc 40 (the latter much too hot) so i'm going to feel very cold next week! Great work
