Taking a Break

To my faithful readers:

It just occurred to me that I haven't posted anything on this blog for a while. Hopefully this hiatus will be temporary. This is quite a busy summer for me. Among other things, I've been preparing to lead another Gelli workshop this Friday; getting ready for our son's August wedding in Austin (designing rehearsal party invitations and photo displays); and doing lots of fun homework for Joanne Sharpe's latest online lettering class (see below). So, digital art has taken a lower priority than usual. Hopefully I'll be back to blogging in the fall, maybe with a somewhat broader focus.

Enjoy the rest of the summer!

Take a Word: Altering Mona

Our challenge this week is to alter the Mona Lisa in some way. I've transported her into Gustav Klimt's "The Kiss," where she seems quite blissful.
