:wave: Not sure if I will be able participate in my own WDE but I will try tomorrow. It took me 2 days to do Crias's zebras from Sharrons last WDE (Feb 24) because my ribs are messed up badly and I can only sit a few minutes at a time. It is watercolors and intense pencils, 10" X 20".

The other is from OldRockChick Lin's Nov.9th WDE when I couldn't get anything to upload on here. ( FB friends have seen it I think.)
16" X 20" fluid acrylics and torn paper collage on canvas.

Oooooohhhhhhh, I LIKE!!! Both are lovely. I like the pink on the zebras' underbellies. The second piece is gorgeous!! I had to reread and look to figure out what medium it was. It comes across almost as an optical illusion (the dark bottem is 3d like-how did you create that effect? So cool...). Love your creativity here. Now I have to try to find time to try collage- you have inspired me girlfriend!!:clap::cool:
About those ribs, I hope you feel back to your old self real soon. We NEED your pictures! I always look forward to your wet canvas offerings...:D

Thanks Paintboss. The dark bg on the collage is layed. I painted a canvas a medium aqua color, let dry. Then rolled on fluid Phthalo Green and glazing medium over the whole thing. Then lifted that off (immediately) with a crumpled plastic bag. Some of the cut papers were transparent and some opaque so it looks more 3D.
Ribs will be fine in 4-6 weeks. Can't rush them. Thanks for the comments.

I love both of these, vaguely remember the collage. What kind of paper? Love the BG with the zebra, you did an excellent job on their bodies. Hope you find a non-painful activity until you heal. Guess the boys are bored.

Thanks for describing your process. I wondered if you had used the plastic bag/seran wrap method. It was very effective.
Oh dear, sounds like you are feeling rough and with ribs you do have to be careful. Its a good thing you can do a little art, take a break, do a little more, etc. Take it easy.

Love the zebras but those wisteria are simply beautiful. Sorry to hear you have an injury, it sounds very painful. Take it easy and heal quickly.

Both paintings are very good Li love the zebras
I do not know what is wrong with your ribs I once broke two ribs in a motrobike accident couldn't find comfortable position to sleeep So I didn't for a few days then got tired or a bit better and was able to sleep
Hope you feel better soon

Wow. These are both exceptional! Wish I could do such great work even without a handicap. I sure hope you heal those ribs. They are difficult bones to heal, it is impossible to stop moving entirely.

Love your colorful zebras. The longer I look, the more colors I see. Makes for greater interest than b&w.

The wisteria is outstanding as well. It must have taken some time to lay out all those little petals and your color choices there are excellent. Kudos on both.

Thanks for all the healing wishes. Ribs take time ( a month or two) but getting better every day. For those asking, I did a light motherwash of yellows, pinks and purples on the paper before I started the zebras, that's why you see the colors within them. Thanks for the generous comments.
