Happy Holidays!

We are at the wonderful (stressful) time of year again.
We will have a quiet year this year and that is okay with us.
Selfishly, it gives me more time to play with my paints.
I finally pulled some of my paintings out from under the bed
and had them framed. I really never love anything I do but it is surprising
how nice they look when we stick them in a frame.
The navy blue wall is a perfect backdrop for them but they do overpower the room.
Things can't be perfect, can they?

My Christmas gift to me
I had a disaster (things happen) at the art table last week.
Two days later I cut it into strips and wove it into watercolor paper.

I was somewhat happy with the results but a friend suggested I weave it into
a colored background.  So today I made the background with water color paint,
witches cloth on yupo.  Not sure what I have yet.  This method is always a surprise.

I think I posted a very bright background I did recently.
Today it got a "geometric" treatment.

Not sure if it is done...stay tuned.
Wishing you all a very happy Holiday Season and thanks for being my "blogger friend."
Happy PPF all!
