NEW PAINTINGS ~ This is two in acrylics I've been working on this week. Kim, looking at the awesome black/white pen doodles which you recently shared in your blog got me to thinking about the pen doodle I did last year. I did something different with it the other day. I printed it out on 140 lb. watercolor paper and then painted the colors in with acrylics. It was lots of fun, almost like a coloring book. :) The bottom painting is on a stretched canvas and still a WIP. I haven't titled it yet but I think the title will come to me as I do some more work on it when we get back from our trip.

WE ARE HEADING FOR KENTUCKY tomorrow morning and we will be back sometimes Tuesday evening. It's been kind of hectic with packing, washing clothes and getting ready for the trip. I plan on taking lots of photos traveling through those beautiful mountains. I'll miss youall and see ya when we get back!

I love the pen and wash you much fun? And the painting...I really like it this way. Will you be changing it very much?

Lynette, have a fun and safe trip! Have a beautiful time with your family...I know it is a bittersweet trip, but they are often quite healing. I wish that for you.

And thank you for the link...

Have a great trip, Lynette. We will be traveling too!

You are so talented. I LOVE that completed piece--looks like a tree personage comprised of, among other things, springs. Bouncy!

Hi and thanks so much Janet, Babs, Flo, Cynthia, Kim, San, Genie! It is so good to be back home. I finally caught up the laundry and I have been trying to get in the mood to paint some more. Kim, I don't know, I keep looking at the second painting and want to put more contrast or something in it. Aww Jean, thanks so very much. You have some gorgeous ATCs in your blog! I'm going to try and get my painting area organized this week and get in there and paint!
