here is what I like about summer

Sometimes, nothing matters. It is a good and a bad feeling at the same time, we are going with the ‘good’ here. Here are two mixed media pieces. the first was actually the bottom piece – you know the one with the star fish that looks good. The lettering got screwed up becuase my faithful companion (the furry one) nudged me with the pen in my hand while I was writing – he needed a bone and it made no difference to him what I was doing. (He is truly a canine child.) So I ripped off the bad part and set about making a ‘new’ flat copy. Then I suddenly realized that I could rebuild the tide with other ‘mistakes’. I like it, but there really isn’t room for any lettering. So I finished the other one.  (The shadows are n’t actually on the top piece, the flat scanner made them because the waves on the bottom piece made it.
