Big plans today. A big to do list.
On my way to do #1 on the list, take out trash ...
I discovered water standing on my garage floor! Nooo!
I had this last March with a broken water heater, here.
Thankfully, it wasn't my new water heater with all the
fancy bells & whistles to prevent surprises.
But I definitely had standing water, and ...
a lot of my art work sitting in it.
I admit my garage needed some re-organizing,
so 11 trips with trash to the dumpster helped.
I called our association, as it may be the dreaded "slab leak"!
They said they would have someone out in an hour.
Wrong. What they did have was a plumber ...
who will come next Monday between 7 - 9AM.
So much for my plans, but decided to be flexible & clean.
I made a trip to donate frames to Tustin ALT.
Probably more than you needed to know, but it helped me to vent.
Another quick step by step ...
|today's face is at upper right|
Step 1. Using an ink brush on heavy watercolor 4x6" postcard.
|today's face is second from upper left|
2. Using watercolor sparingly to shade the face.
3. Add more watercolor for background, (forgot to take a photo)

4. Add collage papers for hair or wherever needed.
Note: I unintentionally used a water-soluble ink brush,
so got some bleeding, which is okay with me.
