Do you talk with your hands...

Remember that painting I did on the wood block a while back. I also said I was going to make one to match? Well, I didn't! HA! I am so fickle. I picked it up and it had text on it from a novel I tore up. I read it, picked out some words and ran with it. 
I actually had this little head that I made with my newest fun things (water-soluble crayons) that was done on watercolor paper. Just testing them out really. Then I added some facial features with my next new fun toys (INKTENSE pencils). They are so wonderful, did you know that they are actually water soluble ink? Yes, INK which means once they have been wet they become permanent! I have used them on canvases (didn't believe it) and they worked! The background looked too plain so some rub on birdies, couple of houses in the neighborhood and some stamped swirlies later, I have She talks with her hands. My painting will be available soon on my website once I have it all revamped and prints done up. Keep your eyes peeled for some big changes coming over at the store.
Can you feel the fall coming? I can, I am not sure what it is that makes me feel it even when it is hot. Maybe the height of the sun, the subtle change in the smell of the air, but I have to say, I love it. Fall is my all time favorite season. Colorful, cool, fragrant and just plain wonderful.

I feel the changed air too, and the smell. It just "feels" different by the end of summer. A blue cape slowly being draped around our shoulders. Lovely painting! Love how she holds her hands...

Why yes, I do talk with my hands. And your point? I love this piece. The colors are so cheerful and although she looks like a lady with a lot on her mind, she looks happy.
