painting with a little Nature

Still another busy, paperwork-laden day, but we worked in a little painting time, Bennie and I . . .

A gathering of ferns and leaves . . .

Fern stamp covered with gesso and silver tempera . . .

Scotch pine and fern prints . . .

Bennie's intuitive painting on clear plywood . . .

This piece continued with leaf prints and acrylic ink drips . . .

The sweet spot for today . . .

Bodhi soaking in the afternoon sun.

In the photo of you grabbing a ferny handful, is that a little ceramic pendant on the red bracelet, perhaps by the same artist who made the gorgeous oil lamp??

Yes, Ruth, that pendant was made by the artist @ ESP Pottery. It glows in the dark too!
