This little fellow was so cute - a snail seen in Belize a few year's ago when Sweetie thought it would be a good idea to take a trip to a remote area of Belize for our anniversary. Um...well...we are still married so it wasn't horrid but we both returned home eaten up with mosquito and no-seeum bites all over us. Anyway, there were nature hikes and talks and during one we saw this little guy in the evening. Perhaps he was heading home for the night?
The words say: Be brave, But watch out below.
I think that sums up my thinking about painting without drawing and the beauty you can get but also the bumps in the road that have to be fixed with a touch of Chinese White watercolor. (No, I'm not a purist unless the rules of a competition say you must use only transparent watercolor - I believe whatever works, use it!)
And here is my last postcard made from matboard, scraps of watercolor paintings and collage pieces and a silver marker. I will add a bit to the berries because I don't like them right now - may even strengthen the vine/tree and limbs, too. But I do like the blue and silver motif :) The shiny bits are collage pieces I made in Myrna Wacknov's workshop last spring at Kanuga - it aluminum foil embossed with a design, then painted with acrylic paint.
For me, Blogger is still not working the usual way in the Compose mode.
If you are having problems with Blogger and being able to post photos, just upload them using the HTML mode, then return to Compose mode to type in your words. It works, but it's another step - until they get this fixed.
Is ANYONE else having this problem or is Blogger just picking on me?
