A new toy in my studio. I have never used resists other than wax crayons or birthday candles. Lol. Oh yes and a silk resist for details on silk scarfs years ago. I recently found that old silvresust but its decades old and does not flow freely - so I invested in this new product. The line is so fine...these are little experiments.

This image was torn from an old Connoisseur magazine. I always liked the colors and thought someday i might use it as a reference. Today was the day. Its really difficult to translate an oil painting to atercolor. But the challenge is interesting and fun. Especially for quick studies. I love the Expressionists uses of color. hope you like it.

Blue giraffasaurus. One of my mixed media friends has been playing with Carla Sondheims techniques for drawing little critters. She is drawing the cutest little creatures. So I thought I would see if i could incorporate them into my breakfast abstracts. This is the first one of this series.

Brain still works. Whew! Took three trips to Lodi Library for forms. I liked it better when Free sites on IRS for prep and filing - really were free. This year the ones Id used before kept tacking on fees. One ended up $94. No way for my simple taxes. In a snit I opted to do it myself. Glad its over. Now waiting for refund.
