New Beginning

Now that "The Box" has left the building, I thought it would be fun to play with some of the new papers that I got. So, I gessoed a quarter sheet of watercolor paper, and played with some paint, watercolor pencils, stencils and stamps to make a fun background. My intent was to then collage in a vertical manner on top of this beginning.

Well, I was having a grand time until I decided that the little boy needed a kite! After trying to draw and paint a kite - it looked like "you know what" (cows do this in the field)! So, more gesso has been added and I'll try to figure out how to save this piece. I really like most of it, so I want to make it work!


Tomorrow is Bill's surgery, so I'll be tied up all day. Hopefully, I can get back to it on Tuesday and magically, things will work out!

Hoping for smooth sailing for your husband's surgery and recovery, Nancy. This is looking smashing and I rather like the idea of the kite. I can almost see the line of the kite string and it looks fabulous! Can't wait to see what is next with this one.

I'd better leave a comment because today the google thing is working!
I love your sense of play with this one, it will be fun to see how it finishes. My prayers and good wishes for your husband tomorrow.

Thank you all for commenting. It was a very long day on Monday, but the surgery went well, and he won't have to have more, but will have to get chemo directly to the bladder. Time will tell.
