Mind Your Own Bees Wax

Life Book 2015, Week 13, led by Juliette Crane.  We are to create a whimsical drawing using mixed media.

My ears were full of wax - aach!  I had an appointment with my ENT doc this afternoon.  I feel so much better now that he cleaned out my ears.  This is an annoying, recurring problem.  Some good came out of it though - this silly drawing :-)

Femme Fatale of the Inner and Outer World

Life Book 2015, Week 11,  led by Jane Davenport.  We are to create a figure in a dynamic pose on collaged background.  

I created my dream femme fatale, an attractive and seductive woman, especially one who will ultimately bring disaster to a man who becomes involved with her.  Watch out fellas!

An Attitude of Gratitude

Life Book 2015, Week 10, led by Tamara Laporte.  We are to show gratitude in a heart felt way.  I'm grateful for so much.  I jotted down the first things that came to mind...good health, Mozart, art studio, sunny skies, freedom, friends and creativity.

Watercolor paper collaged, painted, stamped 

Hearts cut out

Addition of water color pencils

I decided to put these grateful hearts into one of my love journals.  Now I can write about my feelings when I have time.

Whatever Floats Your Boat...

Life Book 2015, Week 8, led by Mati Rose McDonough.  We are to draw a boat and incorporate some gold into the work.

I like boats.  I like to ride in boats.  Drawing boats - ha!  that's another matter.  I made up this little "love" boat.  It should have oars because that sail isn't going to take me very far.

I was very unhappy with my original work (see below).  One just knows when something is "off."  Adding a couple of brayer layers helped this drawing a lot (IMO).
