Hi everyone. Happy Sunday. Hope you are having a nice weekend. It is COLD here this morning. Brr. I even had a hat on to keep my head warm (in the house).
Today I am thinking about the sky and the sea.
I have another bird page for Wendy's challenge at Art Journal Journey.
I started my page by using some clear Elmer's glue to created some flying birds. Once the glue dried, I sprayed the page with some blue ink. I used a Sharpie to to draw in some dotted lines so my birds would stand out. Then I drew and painted the clouds. The sun is stamped, colored and fussy cut. The word is made with some letter stickers.
I am also linking up to day 15 of Art Everyday Month.
I was inspired to make this page after a trip down to York Beach (Maine) for a beach walk last week. Tuesday our gorgeous Indian Summer weather was still around, and after several days of doing yard work, it was time to go do something fun. Our dog Maddie was at doggie daycare, so pup Pete and I got in the car and took a drive for a beach walk.
I really like this photo above even though it wasn't at all what I wanted it to be.
The rusted iron in this rock is a gorgeous color. The barnacles add a nice bit of texture. I may try my hand at putting this on a canvas as a painting. Along with all my other ideas.
It was a fabulous walk.
To make it even a better day, my husband said he'd buy me a sandwich for lunch after my walk.
We met at a restaurant at the old Pease Air Force Base in Portsmouth (New Hampshire). This restaurant still had outdoor seating, and it certainly was a nice enough day to sit outside.
Pease used to be an offensive air base, but it was decommissioned in the late 80's. It has since become a business park and public airport, but the Air National Guard is still stationed there and use the runway.
On this day there was C5 air transport training going on. These big planes kept flying over and over.
I loved the fact that there were airplane enthusiasts standing in the parking lot (which is at the end of the runway) with their cameras. I didn't join them as I only had my phone (but maybe I should have), but at least I wasn't the only one snapping photos for a change.
Enjoy what's left to your weekend.
And thanks for visiting.
