here i am getting ready to write about my work in the collaborative art book for the month
and realized i haven't even shown last month's...why can i not keep up??? anyway,
the first book i'll show is inspired by the artist duy huynh.
tammy also chose a theme for her book, dreams. that was helpful, because duy huynh is a tough act!
the biggest difficulty for me was leaving so much "empty"space. i didn't succeed on this page, but it did inspire the painting i showed you last week. I did a little better on the next page...
and then i did a little card for tammy while 'dream on' played in a constant loop in my head.
i did a page of the lyrics, just because, but i didn't bother to take a picture apparently.
it was easy to have empty space on the cover, as i was the first to add to the painted background ☺
then, last week i painted the garage
the whole entire thing, even the door and the rain barrel...phew!
i tried ink line-drawing, still life and portraits with pattered backgrounds and without patterns...
and then some paper-outs on the booklet and cover
AND then!...there was a UFO sighting...i don't know if you saw it on the news, but here is the link to the ABC coverage: UFO in Pennsylvania
and the next day, in our yard this mysterious 'crop circle' appeared
i am not even joking! i feel blessed to know they are happy about our chem-free lawn. what do you think? i like to think of these visitors as angels or guides...whatever they are, i am sure it is all for the good.
that's it for me,
but before you click me off, here's a short version of
dream until your dream comes true!
at 64 steven tyler still has it goin'on!
