Xenophile Acrylic on collaged text & map on canvas, 6"x6"
Today’s painting for A.Word.A.Day illustrates a pair of elephants forming a mutual admiration society for their respective homes & customs. Just painting this made me want to travel to Africa & India, so I guess that makes me a xenophile too!
Yobbery Acrylic on collaged text on canvas, 6"x6"
When Anu gave me this word to illustrate for A.Word.A.Day, I came up with the idea right away, but I couldn’t find “yobbery” in any of my old dictionaries! What to do? Aha! In good yobbish fashion I would simply tag over another definition! It was fun to paint all the teeny tiny trash.
Viridity Acrylic painting on text collage on canvas, 6"x6"
This is the time of year when I most crave the color green, so it was a pleasure to illustrate Viridity for A.Word.A.Day. And of course it was also a good excuse to paint a cat. :-)
