Hello to all after my long absence!

It has been a long time since I last posted.  Just a couple of days after my last post, I had a major heart attack.  Then heart surgery.  As I was finally recovering from all that, I suffered a spell of low blood pressure, passed out and fell down a flight of stairs, badly breaking my ankle.  Recovery from all of that has been slow and difficult.  But now, I'm back and feeling fine.  I've returned to my art-every-day project.  Here are a few of the projects from recently:

A small notebook:

A color-the -back-yourself set of playing cards:

Art Every Day, 29 July 2017

The card for today is very simple.  I've done a rubber-stamped image, embossed it in black, then used watercolor to paint the flower.  After everything was dry, I used watercolor to paint the background, layered it onto a printed scrapbook paper leftover, then onto a white top-fold card.  And done.

See you tomorrow!

Art Every Day, 28 July 2017

After a few days working with white flowers, I reversed and went for silhouettes instead.  Here is a silhouette of an early spring tree against a stormy sky.
