Day 81 of 100


Today was a test, I think, of my attitudes: could I REALLY be happy, just playing with color? Could I be happy, no matter which direction the painting took?

My heart and soul answered "Yes"--easily--to both questions.
That's a real mark of progress for me.

Amanda of PersistentGreen has made some exquisite marbled paper with purple and green--I saw a journal she covered with one piece of this and it just made my heart squeeze with happy.




So, that's what I wanted to try today. Except I forgot that she had the purple and green side-by-side and not on top of each other :) Consequently, my purple on top the green is pretty dark and sorta muddy . . . oh well, I 'll just try again another day :)




And my freeform random squiggles with the wax crayon left two green buggy eyes in the middle of the painting. The purple parts look sorta like a giant winged bat-like thingie . . .
oh well.

ha ha, now I see the bat! I love the zigzag resist, though... and these colors are scrumdiddlyumptious.
