2014 Art Journal Page for the week of April 23 to April 30. Drove around & photographed cactus & succulents in people’s yards. Also photographed a beautiful hibiscus tree at the top of a hill, which I enjoy seeing each year. Two of my paintings are being shown in an art exhibition. One of these paintings is an egret under the moon eating a midnight snack of a frog & the other painting is a crab with lotus pods. Weather this week in San Diego was 90 degrees, even on the coast due to a Santa Ana wind condition. My poor black feral cat was gray from all the dust blowing around. My cousin sent me sea glass, which I put in a special jar. Painted peony flowers this week & made a chicken card for a fellow artist. Another week flies by!
More peony flowers painted on Chinese writing practice paper. When I went to take a photo of this painting, another piece of paper behind it fluttered out. This practice writing paper is very thin and 2 pages stuck together without my knowledge. The 2nd sheet of paper under the top one created a “Ghost” peony painting. The “Ghost” peony flower painting clearly shows the watermark of the wheel smack in the center of the bottom flower. A lucky accident sometimes can create wonderful & interesting art!
