Hi everyone. Another Sunday is here. Hope you weekend is going well.
More covid cases are here too. In my state they seem to be getting higher and higher every day. It is really scary.
I am still surprised our governor put in a mandatory mask order starting the other day. He's been holding off, and even though I must say when I do go out, most people are wearing masks., it is good to know everyone must now wear one.
My page today began with a hand carved stamp that I made back in September. You can see it stamped in the rusty brown around the border of the page. It is my abstract take on a seedpod.
In the center of the page, I glued down some of the shavings from my carving project. I glued these down on a blank piece of watercolor paper when I carved the stamp.
Obviously it took me awhile a while to figure out what to do with this page. I finally added some pink ink over the shavings and stamped the stars. I also added some beige paint in the center of each of my hand-cut seedpod design.
The lady looks like she is thinking about something so I added her, and also the bird stamped images.
I am linking up to Wendy's bird challenge at Art Journal Journey.
I am also linking up to day 22 at Art Everyday Month.
Finally I added the Alison Bomber quote.
I think this lady named Gladys is hoping that the covid vaccine will be available sooner rather than later so she can take that trip to Hawaii she has been dreaming about. Of course even though I told her that this vaccine is being produced in record time and hopefully will start to be quickly distributed as various governmental leaders determine. The process of making this vaccine is quite amazing, but Gladys told me that she isn't interested in all the microbiological details and just wants to sit under a palm tree drinking a mai-tai with the man of her dreams. Even though that sounds nice, being such a geek I am fascinated by the science behind the vaccines. I do, however, understand why Gladys is ready to go out into the world again. Hawaii or home, I miss seeing friends, going out to eat, and doing all those normal things Gladys is dreaming about. Maybe I am that lady with her head in the clouds.
Happy Sunday. Enjoy what is left of your weekend. And as always, thanks for visiting.
