It's not what you gather, but what you scatter that tells what kind of life you have lived. Helen Walton

Acrylic background

This was sort of a dump of acrylic paint on yupo paper.
It seemed to convey the heat of the summer skies in Florida.
So I mixed up a thick batch of watercolor and painted my hill and palms.
Too simple, but the background gives a dramatic affect and the watercolor does it's own thing
on the acrylic which is always interesting.

This was the stencil I made and used on the picket fence painting last week.
I wanted the background to show faintly so just rolled the white over lightly.
When we lived in Colorado, the arrival of the hummingbirds meant we were done with snow for that year.  Their arrival was sort of a celebratory thing at our house.
I don't believe I have seen one hummingbird in Florida, but I haven't forgotten them
Wishing everyone a Happy PPF
