FAST AND FUN!

I was tired of looking at my own face, so I decided to do something fast and fun today.  I saw a gentleman working on a book of puzzles yesterday.  I stamped "It's a Puzzlement" in gesso onto a large sheet of photo paper, then collaged some crossword puzzle sheets with diluted mat medium.  Drawing with my Pentel brush pen in permanent ink, I sketched him in, then painted with my Hydrus liquid watercolors.  I was disappointed and surprised that the lettering at the top doesn't show up more.   I labeled this in the computer with quotation marks and discovered that I couldn't upload the image if the quotation marks were part of the name.  When I removed them, no problem.  I guess I learn something every day!
