Hi everyone. It a beautiful sunny Saturday morning here in New Hampshire, but the wind is whipping and it is cold again, even colder feeling with this strong wind. But it is Saturday and I am having a lazy morning watching a BBC show about the Yukon Gold Rush, checking out blog posts and getting an occasional update from my daughter who is on her way to Florida. (Lucky her to escape winter right now.)
I've managed to have a lot of art time these past couple of weeks, squeezing in a hour here and there over quite a few days. This piece is one I made but that I am on the fence about whether I like it or not.
It began with me using up some yellow paint as part of the background. I then stamped the chicks, as I had one idea for the page, which actually never happened. I added the sun and painted the rays of golden light. I used some Stickles and a bit of lighter yellow paint to make those sunrays glitter more. Although they are rather messy I do like how they glisten, just like real sunbeams tend to do.
I added the vintage mom and her little girls.
The house was an afterthought because the page looked a little empty, so I used some Stabilo pencils to sketch it. And with just a tad of white paint, I finished it off.
It needs a quote, but I haven't found one yet. I thought it was worth sharing even without it.
I am going to link it up to Rike's yellow challenge at Art Journal Journey
Thanks for visiting! I appreciate you taking a few minutes to stop by my blog.
