Cactus Watercolor Frame

A frame broke on one of my watercolors so I had to place it in a new frame. Unfortunately, the makers of the new frame were unaware of the double mat standard and the backing would not slide into the side edge after the watercolor and mats were in. So I sanded off the edges of the backing on the sidewalk and taped it into the frame. :)

Tote Bag

I finished a tote bag for my son's teacher. I worked her initials into the pocket. Or they could stand for Super Teacher.

Space Mural

Today I continued working on a space mural for a boy's bedroom. The ceiling and walls were already painted light yellow so around the top of the wall I painted swirly solar flares so the whole ceiling becomes the sun and the yellow blends. Then I brought the new wall color of metallic blue up to those. I have painted Uranus and Neptune, then Jupiter, Saturn and Mars. Tomorrow I paint Earth, Venus, and Mercury. I am pretty proud of my Jupiter. :)
