bliss forever tulips

the race to finish art before my art reception on sunday continues. this one is titled "bliss forever tulips" and looks better in person. the photo is a bit funky, i think. it is on a 14" x 14" x 1 1/2" gallery wrapped canvas and is part of my vintage series. i used bits and pieces torn from old books like an early 1900's indiana math book, an old copy of wuthering heights, a french vocabulary book, a copy of william tell in german and several old family cookbooks. i've really struggled with the blues today, missing my co-workers and a reason to put on make-up and dress in non-sweats and t-shirt attire. this too shall pass (careful what you wish for)!!!

tomorrow i'm up and at it early to go to indiana to babysit my grandaughter jenna for the day. we will have so much fun playing in the yard, doing some crafts together (i have 2 planned and need to pack up supplies this evening), visiting the library and making manicotti for dinner. she is such a delightful 3 year old and doesn't stop for one minute. we will have a very special day!!

off for a walk with my dear, dear presley. to quote mr. john denver: "sunshine on my shoulders makes me happy". i'm about to put that one to the test!! have a great evening, my blog friends!!

Oh, your piece is wonderful! I love your mixed media work. So engaging. It truly drew me in. Truly. My head moved, oh about 6 inches closer to the screen! Ha.

Thank you for your kind words by the way :)
