Yesterday I was writing about how hot it was, and it made me think of the GC Heat Challenge and that gave me inspiration for a new piece.
I used a 6 x 4 piece of Kromecoat paper, alcohol inks, Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous stamps and a metallic gel pen. I wanted the man to look as if he were a mirage and I think he does! The edge is bordered by a Gold Leaf pen. So can you feel the heat?
Today it's actually a bit cooler (all things considering) and that made sitting on the porch to watch the birds more enjoyable. I have mixed feelings about my latest guest at the bird feeders - a red tail hawk. So far it's killed 3 doves in 3 days. I know that's the rhythm of nature, I'm just not sure I want it playing in my back yard. This morning he swooped right down and skimmed the feeders with me not 5 feet from it, pulling a weed up! Then we noticed him circling over the pasture next to our property. The birds keep coming though, so I guess I will see how this plays out. I will update as developments occur.
