First a shoutout to all the Veterans out there. Thank you so much for your service. We are so grateful.
A friend posted this and it was so fun to watch I had to show you.
Then I watched this one because it was in the sidebar and its very good.
Todays collage which of course was made several days ago but anyways you get the idea. I am finding doing some art is an avoidance tactic on one hand and a release on another. So whatever it is I am finding it helpful. This background was made with pan pastels at first but I don't have a lot of colors so I wanted a deeper blue so I switched to Portfolio water soluble oil pastels. I love how you can blend and smear them. I loved the stormy look of the image and it seemed to fit in with the background. A few additional papers and tape finish the piece off.
It's funny that here I am doing Nano and I am managing to blog too. You know when you give up TV and cleaning the house you have so much more time. Just for fun I decided to post this at 11-11-11 at 11:00. Have a weekend everyone.
