Thursday/Friday Post

Hi Everybody!

Hope you are all doing well and staying safe!

Today I have another A3 mixed media piece for my heavy metal challenge at AJJ. I used stencils over a background painted with gesso and gold. The crow and the small bids were swiped with diluted gold paint to give a bit of shimmer. The sentiment was also stenciled.
I am also linking to Paint Party Friday






More photos from snow taken from the house or out in the park:

 




Have a great day. take care,
and thanks a lot for coming by!

  10. Another day of being awesome? I am still searching for the first! What will be awesome is when this pandemic is under control. Our whole vaccine supply, distribution and application system seems to be more muddled every day, with never-ending platitudes from politicians with an eye on the next election rather than the well being of the population. Your snowy landscape continues to look beautiful, Valerie, but I expect you are waiting for spring. I saw a British blog this morning with woodlands filled with Snowdrops. We should all be so lucky. Take care. Hugs and kisses. David

    1. Let's face it David, we are awesome. Pity we can't day the same about the distribution of vaccines by those pver paid and rather useless politicians. Here the snow drops are everywhere and the daffodils are shooting up.had to have an abdominal CT this morning after drinking litres of contrast Fluid, Not my fave breakfast! Have a great day, stay Safe! Hugs to you both!

  12. I have to take back what I said yesterday because this crow page is now my favorite of the month so far. I love the swipe of gold over the flying murder of crows. (I think that's the correct word?) And I bet crows do think they are awesome because they really are. Wasn't it last ear that you had an early early spring? The snowy photos look beautiful. Take care. Hugs-Erika
