Won't be posting for another week or more. Enjoying visiting my lovely goddaughter tha had not seen for a while. Enjoying the sun also. No paintings have been done. The opening of the new gallery had an attendance of 300. Pretty good for a cold night. Will be posting again soon. The galllery has more than 30 of my paintings. Later, Silvia

After wetting the paper and placing a mixture of gesso and watercolors on the wet paper, I let it dry. After a while, I looked at it and saw some of what appeared to be some lines formed naturally by the wash. I emphasized some shapes and printed with metallic ribbon with pastel crayons. A little more color was added with subtle pastel rubbings.

This painting is also an 18x24 mixed media . I , as usual, started with wet in wet washes of orange and yellow. Later I put some touches of ink and then made the lines. The painting reminded me of twigs and branches . Perhaps they serve as a bird landing area?
This painting started as a wet in wet with some layers of watercolors and I kept on putting layers of it. Then I poured some ink washes in white. Finally after a while I punched up the color with pastels. Toward the end I made some pastel lines and squigels.
