May 14th in Julie's garden in Madison, WI
Her garden in early spring is to die for.
Really...I can't paint fast enough.
These are birthday and graduation cards.
Well, the ones on the left and right are birthday book marks.
Zentangle on tinted paper with white shading using white charcoal pencil and white pens.
The center one is a grandson's graduation card.
This is a 2 part online zoom class called "Courage Cards"
given my Esther Piszczek.
I've just finished Part I so these are just the beginning of the project.
Esther is a Zentangle® artist. Here's her link.
Back side of the cards in design of your choice. I used spatter watercolor and also some stencil prints as well as Gelli prints glued onto the back of the cards. (about 4 x 6)
It seems appropriate to be talking about courage in these dark time.
The entire world has been affected by wars and mass shootings and pandemics and loss. We need music and art more than ever before to sustain our souls and give us courage.
Greg and I are up north at the cabin for a week now (in the rain mostly unfortunately). Of the 4 days up here in Lac du Flambeau it's rained 3 days. Sigh.
But it's that time of year when we try to get things open and ready for the summer to follow. Hopefully it will follow! It's a sleepy time for baking cookies and looking for the jigsaw puzzles and cleaning cupboards and we had hoped to do a little raking but apparently not this time up. We'll be back up the end of June and through the month of July.
