Hello.  My name is Jules and I am an optimist…you know, one of the glass half full people?  When I found this quote “Have you ever seen a bird with the blues?” by Dale Carnegie, I knew I had to use it in an art piece.  I had an 8×8 burlap canvas in my stash and went to town.  And of course, dug out all my fabulous paints and sprays from Art Anthology.

First, I sprayed Colorations in Guacamole on a piece of fibered tissue paper.  I crumpled it up while it was still wet and, as it dried, I spread it out to create grass for my canvas that had depth and texture.


Next, I sprayed sections of the burlap canvas with Colorations in Grass.  Because of the dark burlap, the color intensified.  On various sections of the canvas, I painted on the Gesso and blotted it lightly with a paper towel.


When this dried I added some lighter blue by dry brushing on Sorbet Dimensional Paint in Mint Julep.


I added the trim, flowers, “grass” and tiny letters along with the tiny birdie.



May your glass always be full and your “blues” light hued.
