As artists we are explorers. We explore how we can make the world prettier, funnier, nicer, more interesting and more colorful. Color can be a significient part of the creative process. Sometimes, I struggle with color but I find that if I am observant of the world around me, color unfolds naturally.

Here's another fun one. Created with mixed media. Has watercolor, stamping, vintage photos, lace, buttons, stamps, etc. I really love the way this turned out. Gives me the feeling of Paris.
Update from several days later. I posted this one on FB and my granddaughter saw it. She is into the Paris thing right now and wants me to create this for her bedroom. Think I will purchase a framed canvas and make one for her on the canvas.
Ok, I'm on a roll. Finally got the software downloaded so I could post some pictures of the art I've been working on lately. I am working on several art journals at one time so I can work on something while another one may be drying or perking. Here is one titled "Eye on You" that was done in watercolors. It is so much fun to begin drawing again. Hope you like it, I do 'cause it makes me smile.
One of the ladies on PAO posted an altered photo challenge for our art journals. Played around with this and had so much fun. Don't think I'll go long and red anytime soon. Take a photo, scratch with wet sandpaper, scratch with a pin and then alter with watercolor crayons. You can give yourself any look you wish. It's a lot of fun, give it a try.
