Wind Power        Linda Rupard

I love the sound of a windmill turning.   When I was a kid we had a windmill and wooden tank .   That is where I learned  to swim .

Mother thought it was a lonesome sound but to me it was music.

Early Singing                Linda Rupard

This is a 12/12  torn paper collage done on a  wrapped wood panel .  One of the first sounds you could  hear in the country 

Is the crowing of the roosters.  A sound that I have always loved.  So Early Singing seemed like a good name for my friend.

I did this one in a fun workshop at Brushworks Studio.  Fun with Kay and 4 more members of our BSAA .   Just a bit more collating and I will be done

Desert Flower        Linda Rupard

I dug out my alcohol ink and  using 3 colors I had fun blowing through straw , using chop stick and Copic drawing pen

For interesting marks and adding small amount detail.    Nothing in mind when I started but I saw this  blooming Cactus 

When I finished.  Love color so the Inks may be back on my table for more fun in the studio.
