MIXED MEDIA MONDAY--SEASIDE POSTCARD

MIXED MEDIA MONDAY CHALLENGE was something new. I pulled out my gouache paints dreaming of painting a seaside collage piece and ended up with something else. Welcome to art. But I did play with the paints, without water, on the cardboard. I usually choose other paints or gesso with my mixed media, so it was fun to use gouache.


I enjoyed creating the beach scene, since it's 20 degrees outside. I know, that's warm to some of you! Joy to all.
