Summer Of Color - Week 1




Sometimes what you plan doesn’t happen.  I had planned to do whimsy paintings for SOC, in line with my ICAD work.  I was mucking around with my acrylics on an old painting trying to work out how to combine the colours of Citrus Green and Turquoise, this week’s colours for SOC, when the lovely above appeared.  I thought she fitted the quote from the poem I am using; I just had to enter her, even though she's an old painting, I have given her a new look and some poetry to dance to.

Take a look at what all the others are doing with the scrummy colours of Citrus Green and Turquoise at Kirstin’s Summer Party.  Why not join in?

Linking with Kirstin of Twinkle, Twinkle LikeA Star fame and her Party Summer of Colour.
