The UPS man pulled up to our home yesterday and left off a tiny package, which contained this...
...and I must admit to doing the "happy dance," 'cause I'm beyond lucky to have my artwork in it!
How cool is that? The pic is of my lovely daughter, taken in Chincoteague a few summers back, when we were trying on hats in one of the stores. Some cropping and some photo shop work gave me some good fodder with which to start.
I've been lost in journaling and have done some rather silly pages and some that are more serious.
The silliness comes from Carla Sonheim, whose class at Art & Soul, I just loved. Carla's got a new online course "THe Art of SIlliness", beginning in September at a VERY reasonable cost...only $25! You can bet that I'm signing up!
The page actually began with a background inspired by Connie of "Dirty Footprints Studio," and as it dried, I must have been channeling Carla, because I saw a dog in the all those paint swirls. Now, this dog is just silliness; he's not to scale, and he's certainly not proportioned correctly. But, none the less, I love him to pieces.
It's been a hard few days for several reasons, one of which is that we had to say goodbye to our princess, Miss Buffy. I miss her beyond belief, and so, some of this silliness has been sorely needed.
We miss you and love you, sweetheart!
