Now for Something Completely Different

Remember when I was stuck and stalled with my paintings? I did these drawings during that time.
A friend gave me some 7"x6" paper and I let some rust and tea do some work on them, then I had all these tea bags and decided to do some little drawings on them and put the two together. I also had a dream that I drew on bones, I find a lot of them when I hike, I tried a little drawing on one and liked it, so I will be doing more. All of these pieces will be going into my ETSY shop in the next week, where I am still having a 30% off sale. I always love your comments. Happy weekend! XOXO

There is something almost tribal shield about these Annie. I like the way you are giving new life to dry bones. Something symbolic there I think.

It sure is different. And the paintings with rust and tea - now that is beautiful.
