Not much art accomplished today, however I did manage to paint some pages this morning in sunset colours for a current project. The problem was that I sponged the paper with water first to allow the colours to blend in nicely, but the water and then the paint flowed over the edges of the paper and left the backs of the papers looking very mucky. Since they are for a particular project where I think that the backs matter, I was a little annoyed with myself for allowing it to happen. I need 6 clean copies, so I'll see how it goes.

I'm currently working on a sunset project too. Two, in fact, in different mediums. One has taken precedence at the moment. But there are some gorgeous sunsets to see at this time of the year. I think the smoke from the fires enhances them, just wish we didn't have the fires!

You're right Mary, I think that the smoke does enhance the sunset colours, and the fires are just awful. We don't have a good uninterrupted view of the sunsets here, so these are pretty well imaginary. Is one of your projects weaving?
