Ken Oliver

Played around with Ken Oliver's color burst and some watercolor postcards. I'm a beginner.

Art Cards

These started with some gelli prints and went from there. I like working in the postcard size.

Trump this!

I watched an art video this morning that suggested we artists use our tools to express how we are feeling. This is what I came up with...Trump made the yearbook journal.

Stayed up really late and refashioned Riki's bed. I cut one of those fancy rubber pillows in half and used that to cushion the base.  Left the upper loose for a blankie.  Of course it is messed up. That is how I sew.
The last zinnia of the season. Ramone pulled all the stepping stones and pots out of the skinny bed and tilled in all kinds of good dirt and peat for next year. The canna's had multiplied and since we had to dig them for the tilling I put them downstairs for the winter. That is the suggested way to grow canna in my frostzone #5. My father in law leaves his in the ground year round and never has a problem, so will put them back in the ground next spring and leave them. They started out in the big pots but did not get enough water so put them in the ground. Can't wait to grow my lettuce in the big pots next spring.

8x8 dylusion journal

Just a little journal play with my gouache and colored pencils. Not happy with it, but after days of jacking with it, since it is my journal, I'm going to turn the page.

The zinnia's are still blooming, we are going to till on thursday.
Did some rubber stamping and doodling with a gel pen. Like it better now.

 I could see after posting how jacked up the lettering was so painted over it. That is one cool thing about gauche, it is opaque.

Looking back through my journal I could see I hadn't finished my page . This is better but the text could be dressed up.

                   Riki got a new rug for his food bowls.
