June 2015


I really need to shut this blog down.  I wonder how I do that?
Just put up a CLOSED sign?
Tell me, if you know.

I'm doing the Daisy Yellow Index Card A Day (ICAD) Challenge again this year.
This is my third year to do it.  When I look back at the cards I've made over the last two years, it's some of the best stuff I've made! I really love it! You should give it a try. In fact I hoard them....
I don't want to send them out into the world. (this is a problem I apparently have with a good bit of the art I make..... but that's another blog post....... oh, wait.... I'm shutting this down soon.... right?)

Anyway, above are the cards I've made this year.
(It started June 1, but you can start at any time.)
As you may can tell... I can copy really well. ha!

Let me know if you are icading!!!

It Rained......... a lot....



I have lots I could say about the flooding in Texas right now.
Our hearts are broken over Wimberley.
If you've read my blog awhile, you know that my family
vacations there a lot.  We were last there in May of 2014.
We love Wimberley and the ankle deep Blanco River.
So sad.

These two pictures are of the golf course behind my house this morning.
It always gets some run off from the San Jacinto River when it floods.
There is a reason my neighborhood is built up above the golf course.
It's at least a five foot drop down my back fence to the course.

I now have egrets, etc. for my viewing pleasure.
And at night........ the frogs sing like I've never heard.
I think a million came in with the water!
It's definitely a swamp experience!

Pray for the flood victims!

What is the meaning of this meeting?



Noticed a bunch of buzzards/vultures sitting on my next door neighbor's roof last week.
An eerie sight!
Couldn't find any adjustment, filter, etc. to really add to this .... need a sky edit I guess. 
Any suggestions?
I used a "spotlight" edit on picmonkey ... see below...



Two of them sat on my roof..... just so ya know...
This was all before a bunch of rain came in... so the sky was a boring flat color...


I sent my neighbor a text with the photo and said 
"look on your roof... they've heard of your imminent demise."!!!!

Gesso Book


Yesterday I was working in my gesso book...... an old Gregg Shorthand book.
These pages are mostly inspired by the Misty Mawn class... Full Circle Workshop.
But I find that I use this book for all my classes to a degree.



Need to do the cover....



So............. this is to say that I am doing a few things..... but mostly just my art journals.... which
is what I consider this book to be.

Spring is Arriving



The time change, the rain, the arrival of oak and pine pollen.....
it all adds up to the promise of spring around the corner!

Hope you are seeing the same!
