Finishing up a swap...

Here are the last two cards for the No Butterflies/No Birds/No Flowers swap...

This cute little pirate's map was shamelessly copied from the internet. Isn't everything?

This was from an actual photo of one of my hubby Bob's old trucks which was gracefully rusting away in our woods.
One of my next swaps involves copying something by Van Gogh. I found this picture while looking around for a reference photo. I won't be tackling this one, but I love the feeling of this painting. Notice how the farmer has removed his shoes so his feet can have a rest. :)
Hope you're having a great day! I'm being a recliner potato on my day off. I just watched From Time to Time for the second time! I figured if I had access to it for seven days I might as well watch it more than once. ;)

Thanks for stopping by!
Shalom.

  3. It's nice to relax and be a recliner potato. I'm a porch swing potato. Both of us are probably sitting with fans blowing on us I imagine.
    I just requested that movie. I watched the trailer and I'm hoping it will have subtitles because we are at the stage where we need them, esp. for British accents.

    1. I watch a LOT of British videos, and I still had to guess at a lot of what they said. But it was still good! :)

  4. Dear lisa, this is a wonderful header-photo!

    Your swaps are lovely. I like your empathic copy of van Gogh very much!

  5. Love the map, Lisa! I can't imagine no flowers, no birds, no butterflies. Everything I do has flowers or butterflies! Really neat truck sketch too. About the watercolor class, it is in person - with the Parks and Rec program of the county.

  6. I'm so glad you're watching From Time To Time. I like it so much. I love how you do so much art -- how you're not afraid of it and just jump right in. I'm a chicken, and I don't paint often. I should try some of those ATC, or just call them cards, or whatever :) The Van Gogh is great - I could see it as an ATC. Give it a try!
