The theme JoAnne Sharpe chose for our calendar this month was to use fruits for the days. I chose apricots, blueberries and strawberries. A combination of Peerless watercolors and water-based brush markers were used. I'm linking to Kate Crane's Calendar Project.
It's week 4 for the Summer of Color Challenge hosted by Kristin and these are the colors this week:
Pink & Apple Green
with a Smudge, Splash or Pop of Dark Green
Gorgeous combination of colors! I made two smaller projects. First is an ATC :
She's just slightly larger than the ATC size. I have made others like this some time ago but I think I gave them away. Fun to make!
Last Sunday hubby and I went to a special exhibition at the Allentown Art Museum which is only about 5 miles from us. I was delightfully shocked that he wanted to go along! These very special paintings are on tour from the Glasgow Museums and this was the only stop in the Northeast. The best part- admission is free to the museum all summer long:) I only have the brochure and newspaper articles to share because photos were strictly prohibited and there were guards everywhere you turned.
This was the brochure. You should be able to click for larger views. The paintings were absolutely stunning!! The details in these paintings , the gilded frames-wow-and many of them were about the size of a wall! We also went thru the Goya exhibit which was very different in contrast and a bit freakish/circus-like. It was OK-just not my thing. This was our local newspaper headline about the exhibit:
Tonight we are going to see the movie "Jersey Boys" and tomorrow will be celebrating Independence Day in the US. I'm sure there will be lots of fireworks heard and seen throughout the day. Enjoy your weekend wherever you are and whatever you do. I'll try to get around to visit as many of you as I can. I so appreciate your visiting me too:)
Edited in: LOVED Jersey Boys!!! Completely endorsed by Frankie Valli-fascinating story and wonderful music! It's the first time I've gone to a movie lately and not looked at my watch-once. Go see it!
Ooh, I better not forget my favorite party place- linking this post to Paint Party Friday also!
