I have been having fun painting horses in pastel. The dappled one is on sanded paper and the black one is one velour paper, I like using them both but especially like the velour for animals. It gives a softness to the fur.

Cold day

Good morning, Pretty cold here in Ohio today 7 degrees, but ,alas, it is January. I will probably go down to my studio and see what I can get into. I have been playing with used teabags and made these bird paintings on them and added dried flowers. I think I might make a couple more today. I am going to be in a craft show in September and need to build up my stock. I don't normally do craft shows but it is near my home and it's free to set up.It is at a park run by the county. A nice place with walking trails etc. Better  get busy before I waste the whole day at my computer. LOL

Black- capped chickadee

Another teabag art project   SOLD

Hummingbird with flowers

I decided to try something a little different today. I adhered a used teabag to watercolor paper, drew and painted a hummer, then added dried flowers, It is 5x7 in an 8x 10 white mat. I like the way it turned out. I am working on a black-capped chickadee now.
