he held her like a seashell




I loved the color inspiration for the July-August
challenge - see the swatch above
and the seashell story inspiration
so I went with that idea
the canvas has multiple layers of gesso and paints
the heart is canvas onto which I glued
shells, coral, and buttons
the rest is a mix of this and that of elements
that seemed to want to be part of this layout
Since I last posted
a new month has begun
and I have started working on an online
drawing and painting class with Kate Thompson
on Jeanne Oliver's website
the class is Children of the Wild
I have been practicing painting animals
and really enjoying the class
you'll be seeing more from it soon

thanks for stopping by
