This week is all about pink! Lucky for me it is my granddaughter Kate's favorite color. 

  Be sure to check in with our hostess Kristin at "Twinkle, Twinkle" for more pink.

It's All About Green!

  Welcome to week two of our "Summer of Color". This week is all about green. Green is my favorite color. Check with our hostess "Twinkle Twinkle" to see all the green artwork from the talented artists participating.

   This is my piece for green. The idea comes from Shona Cole's book "The Artistic Mother". I had done one earlier for my grandson Dylan. The Summer of Color is giving me the push to do one for each grandchild. 

   This is a work in progress. I started with a black and white photo taken with a Lomo Camera. I have already started coloring it with oils, oil pencils, oil pastels, and crayons. It still needs detail work but I'm not sure what to use.  It's coming along but so far so good.
Next week on to PINK.

A Summer of Color!

  My friend Kristin of Twinkle Twinkle Like a Star is hosting a blog party. We are exploring color this summer. Every Monday a new color is chosen to be the main inspiration for a piece of art. This week is all about blue. It promises to be a summer full of beautiful and colorful creations. 

This is my submission for Blue Monday. Can't wait to see what color is for week number two!
