#100dayproject — Day 71

Another water-doodle on a postcard, because I wanted to please myself!

#icad2020 — 15/61
(Index Card a Day 2020)

#100dayproject — Day 35

Day 35

I’m all caught up! Whew! So, today’s is a change. It’s acrylic on a decoupaged background. So much easier than watercolor!


#100dayproject — Days 7 thru 11

Due to a power outage, I’m behind posting my new project pieces. See what I’ve been doing!
