A Wednesday In August





I could not think of a title, I Did all sorts of small tasks and none of them gave me inspiration for a title.

This painting is rather busy, deep in the layers are photos of rugs, this taken from the Sunday paper, it was a full page add of colorful rug sample photos. also my own stencils, they are easy one just uses the same technique for cutting a snowflake. I give the hand cut stencil a few coats of medium and let dry to give it some firmness and if I I'm in a hurry I use spray starch on it.

Part Two of this post will follow in a day or so I did a lot with this painting, you know if you keep doing things with backgrounds it merges into something else.

She's wonderful! Love the palette and how you've integrated the rugs and stencils - great tip on stencils btw. As always, the garden looks beautiful! Bet that sweet bird or butterfly could be happy there:)
