Just using the 3 watercolor inks I have (red, blue, yellow) to make pseudo-flowers that will get pasted onto cards. One even made its way to a Mother's Day card...
And while these were drying, I saw this mystery bird who had shown up from just ink drips and wipes on the foamboard. I guess the birds are still calling to me (we have been having a few pretty ones coming through to the feeders lately, including 5 male rosy-breasted grosbeaks and 1 female).

I once had a book called
Even a Stone Can be a Teacher.
I don't remember anything about the book except the title. I'm pretty sure it was coming from a Buddhist perspective.
This is a little bit of a painting (about 5 x 7 inches) and I'm calling it
Even a Stone
Sometimes it's fun and invigorating to just play with textures.

Remember this one?
I asked what colors to add to that final popcicle and got mostly comments on my Facebook page to use purple.
So that's what I did.
But I wasn't crazy about and and then I went in with the shadows and made ugly shadow shapes. UGH!
So I used a strong spray bottle and washed as much of the color off as I could.
Then it had to sit and dry before I could go back and try to "fix" it.
I reapplied the paint, changed the napkin color a bit and cut it down a lot.
Not great, but it is what it is.
