Now, this is one of my extreme favorites. I painted the painting on an already existing watercolor background. I then collage some pieces of tissue and discarded pieces of watercolors. I also colored the piece of cheesecloth and then glued in on. It reminded me of looking down on the sand or for that matter down anywhere and finding these pieces of papers or discarded wrapping paper. Measurements are 9x12

This piece is part of a tryptich . I used tissue paper on watercolor painted sheet. Then I incorporated some net from a potato sack and also the string. I worked with it till I got a satisfactory arrangement. This is a happy piece and is part of a series called Life with Papa, remembering happy childhood times at the beach, circus and other fun outings with my father and mother. The measurements are 8x10 each and are framed in a white frame which measures in total l6.5x33. It is hung in a horizontal manner contrasting with the vertical direction of the paintings.

Here is painting done at the same time as Remembrance, the last post. I played with cardboard, gluing in to the support. Then I proceeded to paint over . Also, first, I gave it an overall wash. Measurements are 20x30. Is the title suitable?

Painting was born out of pieces of old watercolors. I pasted the shapes as I torn them on an existing piece of watercolor that had been painted in turquoise. I then added some lines and the white lines are cut from left over photo paper. The dimensions are 16x20.
This painting is 20x30 in acrylics. I find painting in this media very appealing and fun. There are multiple layers of paint in my favorite colors. I consider this painting to be a sort of turn around from painting watermedia which I still love. Am enjoying seing videos on the tube. My kind friend Rosemary has put me on to these I am learning a lot. Also inspiring. I am going to do a demo for an art league and it is neat to see how others demo.
