I can't leave everything out, but some of my decorations and inspirations stay out for the artwalk.

And finally another guest being painted.  Wouldn't it make for a much more interactive gallery experience....to walk around all painted up?   I'd love to do a series of people, all different ages, shapes, and sizes....all Flower Color Sparkle Incensed...... Wouldn't that be fun?

My Little Songbird

My Little Songbird, an experiment in using Sumi Ink and Brushes with Acrylic.

Mr Dan is a friend I met at Bridgeport coffee.   If you go there, you probably know who I am talking about because he practically lives there.   Anyhow, Mr Dan has been trying for some time now to get me to experiment with Sumi Ink.   Here is a picture from his studio last week where he gave me a full lesson on how to use the ink and what bushes and tools to use.   What a sweet gift Mr Dan.    Above, today's drawings are the first results of what I've learned.
