El Seven (L-7)

Acrylics, vintage papers, digital imagery, 10x10" on stretched canvas
This is the third piece in that small series of paintings I'm doing, with acrylics, vintage papers, and digital imagery on tissue paper.  I have two more to show you in coming days.

I'm still taking entries for my 400K Giveaway, and you're welcome to enter as many times as you like.  My post from Monday has photos of the prizes.  Comments on today's post, as well as Friday's, will count.  Just be sure to let me know which prize you want.

We're deep into May's usual lousy weather on the North Coast ~ although we did have a heatwave last May.  There's rarely "normal" weather anywhere anymore.  All we can do is hang on for the ride.  The dismal grayness, though, do not inspire me to want to do much besides read.

Toward that end, I recently read the two most recent books by Icelandic author Arnalder Indridason; Blood on Snow by Norwegian author Jo Nesbo; and am close to finishing The Purity of Vengence, Danish author Jussi Adler-Olsen's latest Dept. Q novel.  I have one more Inspector Lynley book to read in the series, until the next is released later this year.

Recently seen via Netflix ~ Wild and Big Eyes, both recent films; Elsa & Fred, a Spanish/Argentinian film; and Vitus, a Swiss film about a young piano prodigy.  I should receive Selma from Netflix today ~ looking forward to watching it.

'Til Friday...xx

Connie, I am loving all of these digital collage pieces you are doing. I might have to try the process. I am also still interested in the fabric bundle in your drawing, how generous of you.....

Very much liking this series. If my name should be drawn I'd go for the fabric bundle.

I didn't know that you usually had lousy weather in May - May in California sounds so hopeful and refreshing "conceptually". LOL. I hope you have a lovely day inside, Connie.

Love this piece Connie, it's really stunning! And, I'd like to enter the mail package giveaway.

I've been reading a lot of Scandinavian mysteries and police procedurals as well. Every once in a while I read an American private detective novel as a change of pace -- and that sends me right back to the Scandinavians.

I'd love the fabric bundle..

Nice work! Grids and grey ... or should that be, black squares amid much else ... depends on how you look at it?

I really like the dimensional feel to this piece
