Happy Fourth!

So far, it's been a great Fourth of July, with an early morning swim, freshly picked blackberries for breakfast, and collage and mark making in the studio. I was inspired to make something with a vaguely patriotic flavor and here it is!

Today's the day for potato salad. So it's off to lunch, with barbecued chicken, potato salad and watermelon granita. Hope you all have a wonderful day celebrating or just hanging out with family and friends.

  1. What a fresh collage, Deb - makes me feel like I am out on the ocean. Sounds like your Fourth was a classic. Glad you got to spend part of the day in the studio. Best, sus

    1. Sus, thank you! It's so encouraging when someone sees what I was feeling :) I'm still trying to work in a sketchbook but it's not happening.
