SP Wednesday

I know 3 posts today but I will be gone for the weekend so this will make up for not posting then.

My self portrait looks a little misty today.

My order from Dick Blick arrived, yippee. After seeing an article in Cloth Paper Scissors using gouache watercolors I wanted to try them. I bought a set of 24 and they are really nice. I love the intense colors.

I tried out my new gouache paints last night and I really like them. This bird is the result.

This is a pick of 2 collages that I did a little while ago. That is enough for today.

I've been wanting to try the gouache paints, too. The bird looks great! I guess Dick Blick is going to get another order!!

I am with Janet, I haven't used his
gouache paints. Your bird is lovely, so I may give it a try.
Lately I have been just posting a news letter and now a Journal. Taking care of Arney is busy work. Also he gets bored, so I watch old movies with him. I usually post at night after he has gone to sleep.
Take care, Mary

I really love your bird, Kate, and your collages, especially your bird though. It's different from what you usually do, but just as nice. I hope you have a fantastic weekend! Love, O
