You are my inspiration and I would not be where I am without your love and support! Thank you, Sincerely! Smudge on!!!!
There is an Oil Pastel Smudge piece of a Pumpkin hiding behind all of the neon Graphic shapes!
Something MORE you can do with a "SMUDGE"
Perfect with l leaves as your theme. How to: Start at the top, like 12 on a clock. Next go to 6, 3 then 9. Go round and round and soon you have a great Mandala or Geometric design! Easy peasy!
Reno, NV Sunday, Sept 23 Wilbur D May Arboretum Rancho San Raphael Nature & Art Event & Silent Auction
Being in nature is awe inspiring. This work below will be in the Silent Auction taking place during the event. Visual Artists, Musicians, Poets and Performing Artists will be dispersed among the gardens of fall color. Hope you can make it by to support the May Arboretum Society. Come by my booth, say Hi and see the many images of "Beautiful Birds" I was inspired to create for the event! Happy Fall Everyone!
A finished landscape is shown on the left and the template used shown on the right. If you were to use the same template with the same cut out images your landscape would look completely different! That is what I love most about the technique. We are all different, we all see our world, and portray it in a different way! Smudge on my friends!

I was experimenting and trying to make a waterfall. It may not look or feel like one, I still like it!
