Hope you all enjoyed your holiday celebrations! We had bad weather here, it rained almost non-stop for 2 days, but since yesterday it seems to be getting back to normal, which definitely improves my mood. Walking around under an umbrella all day is not that good!
Some time back I made this large, A2 piece (17" x 24") at art group over several weeks. The background was one of my wild use-up-left-over-paint pieces. The heads were made from paper that was painted and textured using a spatula. When the paper was dry I wiped some gold paint over it to give it some colour, and after cutting out the heads using my home-made stencil I sewed wavy lines over them - waves of thought? Then I did lots of writing to represent the disparate - and sometimes desperate - thoughts that always pop into my head! I sewed the heads onto the background, and left the threads hanging - threads of thought, perhaps. I am linking to Paint Party Friday and Yvonne's words and numbers challenge at Art Journal Journey.
As we have had relatively mild and very wet weather, toadstools are sprouting everywhere. These were small, with a luminous glow:
That's my muddy boot on the right-hand side:
I even saw people out and about yesterday, here someone being taken for a walk by her dog and horse:
This fungus had a strange colour:
The sun tried to show itself for a few minutes:
Have a great weekend, take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!
