Once upon a time....

I rode the bus to and from work...it was a long ride.  In the mornings I had the lovely & entertaining Gwen to chat with but on the way home it was just long.  So I would stitch or pull out my sketch book.  I'd stitch small 'stuff'.  Now I'm trying to figure out what to do with this stuff.  

Pictured below is one version I came up with on a weekend spent with my son.  I asked him what he wanted to do, being a man of many words ... 'art'.  He chose to paint a large canvas at my desk and I pushed myself into the corner of the sofa with my rapidograph.  

This is what evolved.

Work some swirls with watered down acrylics, have fun drawing squiggle art over the paint shapes.

Miter/press raw edges to the back, mount on foam core [which I painted], & place on top of art.  Then mount in a shadow box frame.  Then sit back & have another 'Tada' moment.
