I brought a fun little home made
plein air kit to my trip to Florida this week. Marge lives in Lakeworth Fla. near West Palm Beach. I decided to do a few sketches of my friends today while hanging out at the pool. Good practice for me. With the good weather settling in back home in NYS I will be happy to get back outdoors to paint. Here is a wee little 5 minute sketch of Marge sporting her Fla.gear. I am hoping to get time to paint tomorrow.

Gelli Plate fun

I am having so much fun with my gelli plate. If you like to do collage and mixed media work you will love how the prints you make on the gelli plate will inspire your work. I just discovered you can buy theses plates at your local Arts & Crafts stores or online at the Gelli plate site.
