Thought I'd start off with something pretty. More on this piece to follow.
First I want to apologize for not getting around to all those I wished to at Paint Party Friday last week, along with those who had new posts up recently. Our phone line and internet was down on Thursday. Called Verizon and thankfully got someone (despite that they are on strike-yeah- what great timing huh?) and managed to get it all back in working order via phone. And then it all went out again Friday eve. Called Saturday AM and was told the first time anyone could come out would be Wednesday. What????
Sunday in the middle of dinner prep the doorbell rang and it was a Verizon manager. OK then. I explained the current and all previous issues they had to come out for over the years and it was ALWAYS the line running to the box at the telephone pole. After assessing things he told us he needed to come back with a technical person. Monday early AM he was here with a northeast area technical supervisor , another tech and two trucks. After several hours they resolved the immediate issue along with the promise to replace the archaic line and give us an interface box outside the house (which we should have had all along). No cost to us :) Enough of that now.
About the opening art page...
It's a coloring book page!! My friend LuAnn had bought it for me for my birthday and although I didn't think it was my thing I decided to give it a go one eve just using my markers. And guess what happened....
I couldn't stop! Mostly coloring while watching TV and then adding some dots and doodles with black and white pens.
Here's a shot from yesterday AM out at the picnic table on a gloriously warm, sunny day:
Such fun! So, my question for you is-have you tried any of the adult coloring books out there lately?? And if not, do give it a try-very meditative AND addicting:)
That wonderful Citrus Cold Brew tea was perfect for this day. I know it came from one of the "T" gals -Deb I think? (sorry it's been awhile that I have this). Linking to T Stands for Tuesday with Elizabeth and friends.
Another page in my large art journal:
It began like this:
A patterned paper background. Several colors of acrylic paint were brayered over top. Image was penciled in then filled with acrylic paint , lined with Stabilo All pencil. Dress painted with glazes. Butterfly stickers. Alphabet stamps and permanent black ink.
Also joining again at Art Journal Journey hosted by Erika this month with the theme of "Journeys", along with Art It Friday- Show Your Face, and Paint Party Friday. A bientôt!
