I took this photo at Buccaneer State park in Waveland, Ms. Pre-Katrina. This park was less than a one mile from our house and right on the water! I'm sure this tree survived but don't have an after photo. Last I heard the park was still closed. Live Oak.

Taking a break. This seems like work compared to working in my art journal.

I had a great junkin day! I got all the 100% silk scarves for only $7.00. That is 50 cents a piece! I love silk and I love all the color! The box of cigar label postcards were a nice find at $10.00.

I started this tree painting in oil. Well. I don't want to paint in oil now. I was going to paint on the porch. After spending the week in pain from painting on the porch one day. I think painting in my studio is a better idea. So. I painted gesso over my oil attempt and going to finish it in acrylic. I know this is forbidden but since I am self taught. I guess I don't know any better.

This page turned out so cool. I photo shopped my butterfly photo onto some french script. Printed that on a piece of antique paper. Glued that down with glue stick. Gessoed and tore paper. For a nice texture I paint the gesso then close the journal. Let the pages stick then open gently. After that dried I used pastels to add color. Rubber stamped the word "blue" with chalk ink then brushed over with pearl ex. Wish my oil painting was this brilliant.
Haven't posted any pictures for weeks. Don't know why. So here are a few of my flowers and my latest moleskin pages. Used crayons for background on chicken page.

Had some fun in photoshop with this picture of my cute little nephew Caden John.
