I had something a bit unusual for me a sketch to follow
for at tag. I think this is the first time I've seen a tag sketch.
On the Spot
This is my tag. I like everything about this, except, my flower choice. I'm not
quite sure that is working.
Rainbow Rembrandt, 1977 by Larry Rivers
I didn't use the artwork provided but I was
inspired by the lovely colors in the inspiration image.
I started with the silhouette of the cowboy and the sunrise.
I printed out a stylized sun stained glass pattern on clear vellum and colored
in the different areas with soft pastel colors. I used Copics but they
really didn't work that well on the vellum that I used. And, OMG! this
scan shows every little imperfection. The lighter colors worked fine. It
was the darker colors that didn't work well, they streaked. I think maybe
chalks would have been a better choice.
My first class is now in session at I Did It Creations 'In the Classroom' group.
Now, don't be late for class.
You might be familiar with QKR Stampede Stamps.
They are new to me but I like what I saw there. They bill
themselves are "somewhat cute, somewhat quirky".

Last night we had a thunderstorm that rocked the house. About 1 a.m.
this morning it all started. At first it was far away but it steadily came
closer until I'm sure it was right over our house. The brightest lightning, then
the loudest cracks of thunder. Then I can hear the sound rolling out
to the ocean. It all passed over very quickly. What a way to start a morning.
