After long stretches of sunny, unseasonably warm temps in Michigan, signs of Spring are appearing earlier than usual. I took these photos yesterday and this morning woke to the sounds of rainfall with prediction of more rain for the next seven days….
For a few hours on sunny afternoons, my dining room window showers rainbows across the floor and walls. Today I took my new kitten Reo into the dining room to show her. She proceeded to strike a few poses with the rainbows on her fur…
On Saturday I adopted a kitten named Reo from Feral Kitty Trappers. Biscotti and I had been struggling with the loss of our sweet Tipper and when I came across her profile on petfinder.com I knew I had to meet her. Just five months old, she’s a little love bug and a welcome addition to our family. While she and Biscotti are a bit wary of each other, I know in time they’ll be inseparable.
At times when I’m painting tiles images emerge and I’ve titled these tiles accordingly.
As I share my tile photos via social media, I don’t always include my “vision”. As a result, in comments I learn what others see – and that’s fun. Other interpretations are fascinating to me and often I begin to see what they see. Like life, it’s good to be open to another’s perspective.
What do you see?
If you’ve visited my blog in recent months, you know that I’ve become addicted to painting with alcohol ink. I decided to try my hand at painting pots, pocket planters and these saucers that are just right for a wine bottle coaster or a ring dish.
My obsession with painting on ceramic tiles led me to a box of glazed white subway tiles, perfect for alcohol ink. There’s something magical that happens with alcohol ink and flame from a long Bic lighter. Here’s what I’ve created so far.
This winter we’ve had more sunny days than usual. When sunlight streams into my dining room/art studio it beckons me to paint. The gallery below represents my January 2021 paintings using alcohol ink on Yupo paper. I’ve titled a few based on either inspiration or the end results.
