Anyways, as always, these scans must be looked at with one eye closed and the open one sort of blurry in order to see past the crusty scanner. ;) These pages (8x8 each) were done for Dorothy. I think they turned out pretty well. I liked the nice color combination (her choosing).
Obviously I liked this combo so much that I also did these pages for a round robin book belonging to the very talented Teresa Stebbins of OH:
They are oriented in the book just like you see them here (top and bottom). I liked working in this perspective, with the spine of the book horizontal. Although, it did take me a little while to get going on them. I really wanted the top page to be of the sky and the bottom to be of the earth so they would mesh together well. I would like to explore making something like this with painting.
So...if you are STILL here (bless you if you are, my friends!) then I have a surprise for you! While on my blue and brown kick I made THIS gothic arch:
Do you like it? Would you like to have it? Well, I am giving it away to a lucky reader who leaves a comment on this post! Yay! Or at least, I hope you are saying yay! Heh Heh! Just leave a comment about anything and I will put your name in a drawing next FRIDAY July 25th and pick the lucky winner! If you don't have a blog, please email me your email address (firstname.lastname@example.org) so I can notify you if you win!
So that's all for tonight, my sweet poppets! I will leave you with a quote from another one of my favorite British comedies Thin Blue Line with Rowan Atkinson: "I once possessed a whoopie cushion. I never deployed it, of course, but the capacity was there."
