I worked on these on Friday but am barely posting them now.
There was a power outage and then the scanner was acting up and then my computer’s charger went out again.
These are all valid excuses, but in reality? Maybe I was just a little sad to do the last Summer of Color 2 inspired blog post? It’s been a heck of a lot of fun and I’ve visited so many, many wonderful artists over the past six weeks.
There is one thing that fills me with a little relief however.
This was a Summer of Color 2…I’m going to tell myself that surely there will be a Summer of Color 3. That? Is something I can look forward to. 🙂
This was our prompt for the week:
And this is the image that came to my mind and would not go away until I painted it.
I showed her to my mother and she absolutely hates it- but I’ve tried to explain that my fire lady is more super hero than demon. Or maybe super villain…I don’t know she’s got a feisty temper,this one.
After I painted her I painted this in the recycled box journal that I made:
My mother likes this one much better.
Happy Last Summer of Color everybody I will be by shortly or maybe eventually is a better word? But I will be by to see every single one of you Si Dios Queire as my momma would say. (It means God Willing and is the term all God-fearing people of Spanish descent must say after making any kind of plans…lest they be struck down where they sit.)
On a slightly more cheery note: I absolutely love you guys and I’ve admired,been inspired, and I thank you for putting your arty goodness out there.
