Cactus Three

Acrylic on paper
6" x 9"

I am happy to report that I have figured out a way to paint in the bedroom in acrylics without making a big mess. Of course it means painting small. Really small. And it seems I can be neater if I am painting on paper rather than board. Not sure why that is.
But what ever works. I missed my acrylics so much that this will have to do for now.

These are some patterns I created recently using the font sets from Kapitza designs. I love these fonts and there are so many ways to use them. It could keep me busy for eternity.

These are a few new patterns I have been working on this week.  Between making patterns and playing around with letter forms, I have been keeping at it.

My grandson has started drivers ed this week. Oh joy. So scary with all the traffic but he has to learn. In April we are going out to Tucson again for one last trip until August. That seems such a long time between trips but we need to go when he is on vacation and that is the last of the school vacations as he has a job this summer at his camp.

If it seems like I am living from one trip to Arizona to the next, I am.

I decided it was high time to get back to some pattern making! It has been a while since I have created one. I had to take a refresher course since I forgot most of what I had learned last year.

I am still doing my lettering. At some point I will combine the two I think.

It is cold here today but there is no snow on the ground so that makes a bit of a difference.

Here is another hand lettered bit for you:

I keep trying........
