Trying Something Different

I’ve had a few days to do what I pleased.

It pleased me to bring out the paints and crayons.

I wanted to practice some of the techniques I learned at the Lisa Kaus painting class I took a couple months back.

                        I had Dave cut me some houses and I started them like this…IMG_2471

Then I flipped them over and started again…

That was fun, so I painted this,

Then I painted this old box that I keep paper scraps in,

Then a cardboard box with a lid… IMG_2451

Then a hinged wooden box, IMG_2440

I ran out of things to paint,

Then I found an old sign…

That was fun!

I love recycling…
