Texture and Whimsy

Exploring texture which I love, and whimsy with added elements.  Hotter colors on this cold and blustery day.  Cradled panel, acrylic, wood icing stencil(Julie Fei-Fan Balzer) and wooden game pieces, painted canvas and hand painted cereal box papers, china black pencil.

Temps are dropping here to low single digits with wind so the orange pulled at me to warm up the wood like the fire blazing in the wood stove right now.

    I wish I could touch this. The texture looks amazing. And those colors are so bright and vibrant. If they don’t warm you up then nothing will.

    Today we had the door open for a while. I think it got into the high 60’s but still cold at night.

Lol sometimes I play around in my journal and don’t layer a background, it never looks right in my eyes!! Thank-you so much for the visit too sweetie, such kind and encouraging words as always.

    That is so cool, a 3D piece of art! I had to look closer to see what it’s made of, but I cannot tell. Love the textures!
