I traced our three children's hands and used a poured (also splashed and splattered) watercolor technique for this painting. It was a fathers day gift for Garver this year. The youngins assisted with pouring the last of 4 layers.
Yay! It was a great work weekend! I am keeping the full illustrations secret until the book is finished, but here is another peak... Cynoglossum officinalis or hounds tongue is a European invader and a member of the borage family. You may have found its seeds stuck to your clothes.
I am making progress on my illustrations, working on one... getting stuck, then turning to another WIP while I contemplate how to progress with the other... Or the other other... But sometimes I just have to paint something I can finish in one sitting... Paint it to make it beautiful, without trying to make it look like anything, without judging or lolyzing (a feat in itself for me)
Thrown from waaay back... I painted this and made the frame from tobacco sticks when I was 18.
