Here is today's photo:
It is not a great picture, but it was taken with a long lens from my chair in the living room. I love the hummingbirds, but wish they were nicer to each other. I never seem to get more than one at a time. If another shows up they chase each other until only one is left. I don't know how people get pix of several of them at a feeder at a time.
It is going to be a busy day as the 7-year-old is going to spend the day with us. It will be fun and I am going to try to get a project going that we can do together. I've started one of my own. I found a background that I made long ago. It has a variety of pages from old books collaged onto it and has been painted with a thin coat of green. I decided to do a face on it. So far I've roughed in the features and put a bit of flesh colored (she is going to be fair skinned with blue/green eyes) paint on it.
I am hoping to use a bit of what I've learned in my Faces in Technicolor class, but in more traditional colors. At least, that is what I have planned for now. Who knows where my muse will take her as I get started.
This piece is about 6 1/2 inches square and I am hoping to work on her for the next few days and will share my progress. I am not planning to start on the third girl in Sharon's class until I see the next set of videos, but am still planning to add color to my first face to make her more "technicolor".
It is going to be a busy day today. I am hoping to get 2 miles on the treadmill this morning and have to do a bit of house cleaning as the hubster's sister is arriving tomorrow. I have cleaned the bathrooms, so don't have to do that, but need to do some dusting in the guest room and freshen up the rest of the house.
Welcome July - hope you'll stay longer than your sister, June.
