Mohr Island

My pal David sent me an amazing set of watercolour paints from Japan last month.  The colours are strong and most are opaque.  I have been doing some experiments with hem on a nice little pad of 6" x 6" high cotton content made by Papier Canal in Montreal.

I find it surprisingly difficult to just choose colours and do splotches of colour as an abstract painting and after a few peices, chose to work from something I could see.  This was the view from the boat moored at Mohr Island on the Ottawa River, complete with the navigation buoy off the sandbar.

Yank Thou

I've been having some fun making cards for friends lately.  The addition of a rubber alphabet stamp set has opened some new possibilities...just add a dash of pig latin and a shake of spoonerism.
