Another orange and pastel sunrise...
...transforming into a blue sky day.
It's 12 degrees, but is supposed to get near 30 today.
I actually slept from 8:30pm till 4am!! Happy, happy me! I worked on finishing up the coloring of my mandala with the watercolor pencils.
Not finished yet. I must be the slowest person in that class--LOL! I still haven't done any of the doodling on it that I'd like to try and we are starting another lesson today. Guess I'd best get on the stick after the paper is completely dry, eh?
Speaking of dry.
Here is what the page spread in my art journal looked like after it dried.
The pictures look so different without flash...
...and with flash. Actually it's somewhere in between. Has a shimmer to it, but the flash reflects too much and without doesn't show much at all and looks too dull. Oh well.
Anyways, I'm having fun doing the beginning backgrounds. Can add whatever I want afterwards, but this is at least getting me started...pushing me over an inner wall. I have a difficult time being looser with art. This is a stretch for me. ;)
Now, back to the mandala!
And whatever else I can get done or started.
Addressing envelopes for the Christmas cards.
Handwritten Christmas letters.
Work on finishing my 2012 birthday cards.
Always something on my list. ;)
This is a week for gratitude and thanksgiving.
May it be a full one!! :):)
