Etymology meets Art

I love words. I love new words, old words and the history of words. I love to make art from words and recently, started to write over my watercolors:

Poppy Friends

Poppy Friends, approx. 4 x 6

I think will also be true and I LOVE the color poppies – right now, they are all over the state of North Carolina in the Highway medians. Makes running up and down 421 and 77 a joy !

The Art of color drop

This is an exciting ‘new’ method of creating water color flowers and foilage, called Color Drop flowers. I learned this from Martha Lever, who is a whimsical teacher ! At any rate, as will all art, I tend to learn the technique and ignore the details and go off in another direction. I took this class about a month ago and my DH recently said ” what are you going to do with all of those – you should sell them”. So, based on his expert advice, here they are, at Artpickins, ready for their new home  with you. Hope you enjoy them.
