Finished the Cumberland Collage painting, putting some stamped leaves and other odd lines and things on the "frame" parts that were done with pure Inktense pencils. Then took the opportunity of a dry, sunny day and spray sealed it.

Finished the painting for my sister, too: Glad to Have Known Her (a portrait of our grandmother and her gladiolus she grew every year).

And what's next? Well, I've done so much work on the live model drawing (skeleton and muscles, too), that I thought I might just put some watercolor on that. Instead, I traced it on watercolor paper and, using the drawing as the guide, worked on that a bit. Will share when I get a photo of it.

That decorative border inthe ZYUPO painting adds so much and I LOVE the tree and falls. Beautifully done...and your grandmother would be so proud, too!

Glorious Cumberland College piece! So vibrant. That your Grandmother grew glads touched me. They were my mom's favorites.
