"Tucson Bungalow"

Some of you know about Kay Zahn's "Street View Paintoff" where you find Google street view image in a specified location (in this case Arizona) and use it as reference for a painting. I am fond of the Sam Hughes historic district in Tucson, so that's where I found my reference photo. I was attracted to the star like pattern that the palm tree cast on the ground in front of the house.

On Thursday my husband and I leave for Arizona. If you haven't already checked out the link on the right side of this page under "other interesting websites and blogs", you may want to do so. We have had fun turning a rather ordinary little house into a colorful art filled space that we enjoy living in when we are down south. There's still a bit of work to do, but not so much that we won't have plenty of time to play. We plan to stay until at least mid December and maybe into January, if I can work my mind around being away from family over the holidays. I plan to take some painting supplies so that I can continue posting, although I can't get Adobe Photoshop to work on my laptop, so that's a handicap. Somehow I will find a way....
