Sunday Wrap-UP and Summer of Colour

(From our garden this week)


This has been a week of not much art. As the school year comes to an end, final marking and report cards have been consuming my time. I am almost done!


I haven't even been creating ATCs, as Canada Post is on strike - so mail won't be going anywhere!



I was also able to play with some paint this afternoon as I waited for my husband's children and grandchildren to arrive for a Father's Day barbecue.



This week we were working on green for "Summer of Colour" at "Twinkle Twinkle". As I did last week, I did a colour collage with magazine cutouts and changing colour values.










Then I played with different green acrylic paints. I will be using these for backgrounds for ATC s and other projects.









It will be interesting to see what everyone does this week.


One of my passions has been to take photos - two of my favourite subjects are skies and flowers. Here are a few shots from this past week.

Your dreamboard looks like a wonderful inspiration. Your mail is on strike, though? Can they do that there? Weird! I hope it doesn't last long.
