Time for a Trip

I wonder where this young man is going?  He seems happy enough.  Must be a nice destination.
This piece of art was done in cut paper.  It is 4x5 in size. Quite small, now that I think about it.  I was making a card out of it, but now I just want to keep it.  So, I have it sitting on my desk.
That's how it is with art I think, artists' get kind of attached to the piece, as they are creating it.  We put ourselves into the art itself.  A bit of our soul, I guess.  Sounds kind of sad, but it's not.  It's a nice feeling.
I have been busy planning a trip.   My husband and I go to Edisto Island, SC every other year.  It is a wonderful peaceful beach community.   I can't wait!

Thank you for visiting my blog.  I'm never sure anyone is visiting me.  But, I hope so, and I hope you visit again!

Mr. Rabbit

This charming fellow just begged me to bring him to life.  I think I'm ready for Spring already!
Created on a watercolor background.  Note the fun salt splatter in the blue background.  Have not done that for awhile.  Then just build the image with a variety of different papers.  So much fun to make!  This piece is about 14 x 9 inches in size.
