That is where we needed to go to find new subject matter for the watercolor class. It also got me to clean out a couple of closets in the house. I filled up my station wagon and took a load down to a the Family Store, benefitting Family Service Agency. I am accumulating more for another trip next week, but back to the watercolors....First I painted my favorite flannel robe that I made many years ago. Instead of painting each snowman motif which would have taken forever, I left the white spots as a suggestions of the design. One of the actual snowmen was cut out and fused to the paper. My favorite fleece vest and holiday shoes were added to the composition. Then I just went for what I wear everyday - jeans, turtleneck, a vest and my favorite comfy shoes. Note the rubber stamp I carved copying the design from the sole of the shoes. That was a lot of fun and I will use that stamp again, maybe even carve the other foot. The grid on the vest was created by stamping with part of a strawberry basket. Now I am truly headed to my studio to sew for a few hours. It has been awhile.
