The Grass Is Always Greener

This is a watercolour I did last year but never posted.

Purple and Blue

A new needle-felted piece.  I’m not sure if it’s finished.  I need to live with it for awhile to see what it says to me.

Eddies

I am enjoying playing with colour and texture.

Here is my latest felted piece.  It will be mounted on a painted canvas. I haven’t yet decided which colour or colours I’m going to paint it.  I have fooled around in Photoshop and have come up with several possible versions.

Possible colours for background

Which one do you like best?

This Old House

The house isn’t that old.  It’s just that my friends, Margo and Pat have bought a new one.  I felted them a reminder of their former house.

Autumn Sumac

This was the view outside my dining room window at the the cottage a few weeks ago.

Fall-Sumac-watercolourI love it when the trees have started to change colours but there is still some green.  This year some of the sumac was brilliant red while other trees nearby had barely started to change.  The trees I painted in the watercolour started to turn well after many of the other sumac in the area.

The leaves have all gone now.  Even the poplars which turn late lost all their leaves in the wind we had Thursday night.

Angela

This year is Raggedy Ann’s 100th birthday.  So to commemorate the event I am making some Raggedy Ann-type dolls.  This is my first attempt.

The face is machine embroidered.

Later this month she will be donated to the Ottawa Fire Department to be given to a child in crisis.

 

Blue Jay

The Blue Jays love to sit in my pine trees between visits to the bird feeders.  This watercolour is from a photograph I took last winter.
