A Little Canvas Collage
I was going to submit this for the Layers of Color Challenge, but just couldn't get it posted, so I'll have to try for the new challenge sometime this week. I wanted to put a photo on here of what I did, anyway, because it was fun to work on and it's finished, so . . . it's been very hard to do any artwork lately because I have to do a lot of it on my lap-- there' just nowhere right now where I can spread out all of my art supplies. We still haven't sold our house in Boise and have been looking for apartments--we will probably move soon so that we can have our own place again. I was so fortunate to have some time recently being in my house again and it was lovely to have all that space and all my things surrounding me and my songbirds and hummingbirds eating at the feeders in the backyard again. I miss that, but my husband's job is here now, and so are 5 of our grandchildren, so this is where I am at this point in time. I'm applying for teaching jobs and should have something soon after being too lazy and depressed to work the past few months--I keep thinking of that little Mary Engelbreit saying, "Bloom Where You're Planted" and I have to live my life that way--if I could only just get my brain to catch up with where my body is residing!
