Two days of pictures together because nothing was dry enough yesterday so I could not take photos.  I am still on track at the moment though…..just at the mercy of the paint.

The first is called Firestream and is a mixed media abstract.  It uses handmade paper, acrylic paints, beads and wire and some lovely deep reds and gold.  This is my favourite colourway for paintings and I love everytime I get to use these colours.

Firestream is 23cm x 17cm

The second picture is another mixed media abstract which was inspired by our heatwave.  It was as hot as the red in the picture and the sky was a beautful blue/green.  The horizon had a lovely silvery sparkle which I have shown in this picture with silver acrylic paint, silver leaf and tiny sparkly beads.

So, here is Heatwave. (50cm x 50cm)

I have now survived a week of my challenge but there is  a long way to go and lots to do.  I hope you will stay with me : )

    These look great. The white line in heat wave makes me think of a layer of ice cream melting in all the heat.
