It's COLD out!! I can't imagine what the folks back east have to endure!! The outside thermometer lowered to 38 degrees and that's usually when it starts snowing........not sticking just yet, but definitely some of the white stuff coming down.
I thought I'd show you what I've been experimenting with the last couple of days.......painting on some of my photographs. There are a number of various mediums that can be used and so far I've only used oils and acrylics. I have a couple of new ideas rumbling around and will see how those experiments work out. I've been wanting to try this for almost a year and had some black and whites specifically for this purpose. I'm starting out with florals since I think I might really get some interesting images incorporating both the photograph and the paint. Seems like lately I've had an urge to pick up a brush again and this is the perfect way to merge two artistic art forms into one. Things need to be perfected still, but I'd like to hear what you think........

And in the meantime, it's a good way to forget all about how cold it is and how antsy I'm getting by becoming completely engaged in right brain fun.
