Lovely, Helen!  Somehow this reminds me of autumn leaves lying in shallow water in late fall with ice newly forming on the surface.  I like it! :clap: :clap: :clap:

Nice one Helen.  I agree it looks like a pile of leaves.  The colors are great.

Here is my last abstract for awhile.  I'm back to finishing the trees series.


My husband named this one "Kids Playing".  What do you guys think?

Very nice, Red!  Not a clear word, "JOY" there, but that word came to mind the second I saw this!  :flowers:

 :clap: I have just checked everyone's abstracts out and there is such a range of imaginations at work on them all and the colors all look great , by the looks of them all we all had fun doing these, would'nt it be great if we could display them all on a wall somewhere for all to see. Thanks all who viewed my attempt and yes i did use gladwrap.I have started doing another one where i have used masking fluid and will use pen and ink to see what happens. :thankyou:

I've been having computer issues and cannot watch my class replays  :( :'( .  I also don't see a PDF for this class yet.  Has one been done and I'm just not seeing it?  :confused:
I've been sick with the flu, and it kicking up my asthma.  I can't do much except sit, and even that is hard. Lying down is impossible.  It's making me crazy!!  :idiot2: I can hardly wait to get to town and take my computer in to get fixed.  I'll also be glad when I feel up to painting again.   :painting:
