No, my blog did not end as the Mayan calendar predicted--I am just late into the new year 2013 getting my thoughts organized and expressed. Filled with gratitude, I enter the realm of the New Year with a renewed sense of creativity. I am experimenting with painting techniques and transparent watercolor. My palette is filled withwonderful Daniel Smith colors: hemitite brown-violet-burnt scarlet, cobalt blue, quinacridone gold and burnt sienna create great rock terrains. Sap green, Phthalo green and deep sap green blend for a variety of plants.
Great-grandson, Tristan, used cookie cutters on watercolor paper (BFKRives) and painted the inside of the cutters with watercolor to create Christmas cards for the family. They were his gift to all.
Happy New Year to you and yours!
