Pink Saturday and a little Art Work

Just a reminder that this birdie in the teacup is on my Ebay for just a short time.
My own artwork using techniques learned at the Lisa Kaus workshop
Had to throw in a bit of music, nest and roses
Absorbent Ground... it allows me to paint with watercolors on any surface. Watercolors need something to sink into, not like acrylics that just sit on top of a surface. So this Ground is perfect. I did a little research on it, seems like it works best if your surface is coated with gesso first. I used Goldens Molding paste on these too, to add a little more texture...wouldn't want anything looking to flat.lol.

Beautiful artwork. I had not been to visit you before but once you left that sweet comment on my birds nests I had to come over to see you! Thank you for your kind words. I will be back when I get some rest.

These are absolutely adorable: charming, wistful... without being sickly cute (I hate cute, lol). I love your header, and the icing on the cake for me was your advice on absorbent ground. I have had a pot for 2 years, and couldn't remember what I bought it FOR! Someone did say online it's good for prepping thin papers (eg: for journals) and of course I was trying with acrylics - and not impressed with the result.

So now I know why - and I'm so grateful! Thank you for posting this. http://www.sainsburys.com/groceries/index.jsp?bmUID=1246172637672
