Let's step away from the cameras for a bit and go back to the folded paper. I love these cranes so much! They remind me of my boys who are always folding and leaving little treasures everywhere for someone to discover. The crane was (and still is) the most popular one found. . . and it comforts me and makes me smile when I pick one up and flap it's wings.
Some days just suck. Some days you just feel the blues with a gloomy cloud looming. Some days you feel bruised. Some days you just cannot hold your head up and face the world. I tried to portray all those things in this painting. Don't worry... all is good in my world, I just have my moments just like anyone. Here's to cheery days to come!
I love how this old camera at this angle looks like it is looking at you with one big eye... almost trying to peer into your soul.
We are only into day 5 of the challenge and I feel like I am making pretty good progress We will see how I feel next week. LOL
Boy this one turned into a muddy mess! I think I was drawing colors from all the smoke and crazy colors the sun is producing through that smoke that is surrounding me. If you are not aware... we are choking on smoke from the fires that have engulfed Montana. I intended on using a totally different color palette on this piece. As I painted, my colors just seemed to get muddier and I realized that they are very reflective of what I see outside. Tomorrow is another day... I hope it brings clearer skies as well!
"When Life Gives You Lemons"
Soooooooo... Lemons are still not my thing! I tried one more time but I think it is time to move on. We will see what tomorrow brings.
I keep meaning to have a blog... it will most likely get neglected... Hang in there people,.. I am trying!
