Rainbow of colors!




 One fine day, I got it into my head to squiggle some paint, in quite a random way, on my paper. 

The yummy looking colors looked so good to my eyes I wanted to create something out of it.
 I pressed down a steel lid from my kitchen on the paint, mixing it up in no particular pattern. 
The paints mingled in a lovely way and I stared it long enough until I could see faces in it. 
 It was easy from there to bring out these faces. 

Julie Balzer had asked to share pages created using ten supplies...I don't know whether thick card stock paper, a steel lid, a multitude of colors - acrylics, a few pens can really add up to ten, yet these are the supplies I used. ;-)

 Hope you enjoy seeing them as much as I did! 














Next, on my list this week are three canvases I did, inspired by Africa.
I did these paintings some time back and I forgot all about it until I had a visitor, a sweet lady from Paris who really liked them.

What do you think? 











I love sketching and just cannot help sketching at every available opportunity.
I sketch through meetings, boring classes and when I was younger, got scolding for sketching on my dinner plate of rice and curry! 

This week I thought I would share one of my umpteen sketches scattered all over the house, on the day’s newspaper or my notebooks, textbooks…well, anywhere!






 Wishing all of you a relaxing week filled with paints and ideas galore!
