I'm painting directly on heavyweight 100% linen with fabric paints to make a few pillow covers for our home and some as gifts. I will spend my day sewing which is a nice break from all the drawing I've been doing lately.
Last year when I visited my sweet friend Margie in Toronto she took Sonia & me treasure hunting at the St. Lawrence Flea Market and I bought this little bundle of photos of Ottawa. I love the aqua color of the packaging and had to add it to my vintage ephemera collection. I finally had the chance to do something with them! I'll be altering one photo every day for the next nine days. I'm painting directly on the 3.5 x 2.5 black & white photos with FW Acrylic inks and my usual size 0 liner brush.
***I'm so excited to be going back to visit Margie in a few weeks!
I'm SO excited to go back to Toronto for a whole week! I'm looking forward to spending some precious time with my sweetfriends, visit the One of a Kind Show and do a fun one day stamp carving workshop at Bookhou! I hope you will join us if you're in the neighborhood :-)
This where you'll find me & Manolo early Wednesday mornings. No better place to buy freshly made blue corn tortillas, fresh fruits, veggies, herbs and wild mushrooms. I love the colors, the smells, the sounds, tasted and the super friendly vendors at this weekly market.
