We have become not a melting pot but a beautiful mosaic.
Different people, different beliefs, different yearnings,
different hopes, different dreams.
The wave of the future
is not the conquest of the world by a single dogmatic creed
but the liberation of the diverse energies of free nations and free men.
-John F. Kennedy

Boo-hoo! My car is in the shop--so much $ all the time, worse than a teenager! Filled my time today sketching and watercoloring using techniques I've been learning from Jane LaFazio's DVD: from art journaling to art.
...from a picture I snapped of a vase of flowers on the check out counter at Lake Bluff Inn a couple of weeks ago...
...these allium were in a lovely garden square in the middle of downtown Saugatuck. I posted this picture in a previous blog, but thought I would show my art journal version for comparison!
...please tell me you weren't thinking grapes...always wanted to go to the blueberry festival--won't make it this year either--can still hope for next year!
...from my daughter for mothers day...also posted previously...
...as well as the inked over pencil sketch...but...
I haven't shown the watercolored version yet...of course,
these were completed before the video arrived...I like them, but I can certainly tell the difference in the technique I used. Break over, time for more painting--or maybe it's nap time--it is a day off, after all!!!
