ID: Wk 40 - Inspiration - What Lies Behind Us
Size: 6.5" x 6.5"

On Bee Super Deluxe paper wrote out the text using Walnut ink & a B-5 nib in a basic monoline. Painted the background with Holbien "Peacock Blue" watercolors. The squares painted on very water logged paper dropping in various colors of Dr Martin's Radiant watercolors (Golden Brown; Tangerine; Amber Yellow and Olive Green)

ID:  Wk 41- Shel Silverstein - Runny Babbit Returns
Size: 8.5"h x 11"w

On white Staples 110# cardstock inked the quote using a B-5 nib and Vermillion Sumi ink. When dry, shadowed with a pointed nib and Sumi ink. Drew in my spider web and spider with a Zig Writer.





ID: Wk 42 - Indigenous - When Your People 
Size: 7"h x 10"w

I'm taking a class with Amity Parks and thought I'd use the pressure/release technique. I've always like the look of this technique, but it's been eons since I've used it...

On Bee Super Deluxe paper and Caran D'Ache Grafwood pencil wrote out my text using a 6B for the 1st line and a 3B for the balance of the quote.



ID: Wk 43 - Spooky - Spider Web
Size: 11"w x 8.5"h 

Monoline with a silver gel pen on black "Stonehenge" paper. The web is individual pieces of silver thread glued to the paper. The spider is dimensional paint in black, red & yellow. 
Text: Upon this web a spider dwells. Waiting, watching and weaving a spell. Snagging the unwary in gossamer's thread. Yuck what's all over my head?





ID: Wk 44 - Fall Colors - Autumn Is a Second
Size: 7"w x 9"h 

Rubbernecker leaf stamps. Sprinkled my silcon craft sheet with Bister powders (yellow, red, green) and misted lightly with water. Pressed my rubber stamp into the wetness then onto my paper.

Monoline using a B-2 nib and Sumi ink. Accented with a pointed pen and "Autumn Gold" Pearlescent acrylic ink.

Quote: Autumn is a second spring where every leaf is a flower. Alberta Camus
