Watercolor and Mixed Media

These are the watercolors I still can't believe I did for our craft swap. I really like how they turned out.
I stenciled these glassine bags to wrap them in.
I also stenciled a shadow-like image on each one.
There was a lot of ink left on the stencil, so I pressed it onto white cardstock and will use the prints for future projects. The craft swap was a lot of fun and I received some wonderful art in return.

I Can Paint!

I don't know where this painting thing came from, but I'll take it! (Color photos coming soon.)

Beautiful Phenomenon

The waters of the Monterey Bay, California, never looked so emerald green! In all my years of living here, this is the first time the ocean was so green. One of my science-y on-line friends explained it this way, "COCCOLITHOPHORES! Little unicell algae with bright white calcium carbonate plates. Looks like Caribbean shallow water with carbonate sand. Yay!"

It was a lovely sight to behold.

We had a beautifully peaceful family time today seeing that my sister's ashes were tucked into place. The deer were out and about and the smell of the ocean filled the air, just the type of day Martha would have loved. Her niche is very close to their little chapel. The cemetery is right next door to a golf course where deer run free, and with no sense of the city about you. It's lovely. Our family will be forever grateful to our friend Janis for making this day possible.

Evening Sky

 On a sky/cloud kick

 The moon was so bright and it was still daylight!
 And, of course, good golly Miss Molly with a piece of straw on her chin.

Note: I found this in my drafts and couldn't let it go to waste! I think it's from December of last year.

Laptop Problems Solved!

I haven't posted much because my laptop got a silly virus-like thing and it was sooooo slowwww! So I haven't been on it in over a month. Thanks to my daughter Dawn, it's up and running a good clip. Now, let's see if *I* can as well.
