Here is another picture from the rosebush in the side garden. It is a newly opened one with a rich color and a wonderful smell.
And finally, my work in progress: I've added a bit of color with a wash of very watered down Quinacridone Magenta and then mixed up a bit of Ultramarine Blue with a fair amount of Titanium White and splattered it about. In between those two steps, I stenciled a bit with a piece of plastic canvas.
I have a wide selection of papers and textures that I am planning to add today and then I'll go from there. I haven't worked without a plan in a long time and I find it a bit frightening, but also very freeing. I am anxious to work on it more.
But first, I have to run into town and get some softener salt and run by the daughter's house to pet the cats and bring in the mail. Then I'd better do the treadmill or I'll talk myself out of it altogether.
I hope to see you tomorrow - thanks so much for visiting!
