It is a big day for this old girl today...I am 77!
Egads, how did this happen...so fast?
There is some saying about the days being long and the years fly by.
It is TRUE!
However it seems in the 70's the days fly by also.
That said, being a December birthday, that means that turquoise is my birthstone. Oh, there are also some glittery birthstones that go with December but in my head turquoise is mine.
And I love it!
I can remember each piece of turquoise I have received or purchased AND where it came from.
Of course, most have originated in New Mexico and that is where I acquired most of it.
So, I played "dress up" and put it all on at once!
And now on to my art for the past couple of weeks. I dug out my old friend yupo and here are some of the results.
One of the things I like about yupo is that you can cut it and weave into it pretty easily.
Another thing I like about yupo is that you can lift paint as I did here and in the first one (the dots have been lifted in it).
I have been enjoying another "Abstract" class at our art center.
We have been doing some work with dry brushes and I really enjoy the look you achieve.
And then one more...a collage.
Doing this was a lot like knitting, doing the same thing over and over again.
It is sort of soothing, if you ignore the sticky fingers.
But I collected an assortment of different pages and print.
So that's it! I haven't been around but I have been playing and visiting your sites.
My computer issues have not been resolved. But please know I am visiting and enjoying all that you do. Happy PPF and A Happy New Year to all.
