I usually do not make “cute” images. When everyone in grade school and on up could draw cartoons, silly people with wonky eyes and rubbery limbs, the best I could do was copy the cute image from the ad in a magazine or the inside of matchbook cover that challenged me with the question “Can you Draw?’ ( Now I have dated myself.)
I am vacationing in Florida this month and for some reason the “cute” images floated out of me with watercolor and collage. I did one, that led to the next, and so on and so on. I decided the playing and making fun with art techniques and materials is good for the soul. So is Florida sunshine when my genes are in the shape of Minnesota, snow drifts, and blowing wind.
So today I will post what I have been creating and hope that they will elicit a smile or two.
