After taking Karlyn's abstract workshop (I have really neglected all my collage principles I haven't done in over 3 years!!! LOL), I decided to try a bit of something wth my failed color sanding. I stared at the shapes and the colors and the mass reminded me of the woods (surprise!! LOL) -- and so I added the trees to attempt a semi-abstract painting.
I have another one of these 'not quite successful' pieces .. and I"m waiting for it to 'speak' to me for the next step ... Thus far,all I'm getting is silence! LOL
It snowed a bit yesterday -- merely flurries and the 'teasing' of those dark, heavy clouds amid sunshine and bright pink rays ... absolutely beautiful skies! But mercy, I don't think my hands have thawed out yet!
