Watermelon Ice

I  can't  believe  it,  but  this  is  the  last  week  for  Kristin's  Summer  of  Color!   That  6  weeks  came  and  went  in  the  blink  of  an  eye--a  little  scary  how  time  flies  by  so  fast......

The  final  color  for  this  week  is  Watermelon  Ice--another  fun  color. 

So  this  week  I  went  with  my  favorite  6 x 6  gallery  canvases  again--I  made  3  of  them.   Here's  the  start  of  the  first--


...and  here  it  is  at  the  end...



the  before  of  the  next  one....


...and  the  after...



...the  beginning...


....and...the  end...


.....and  I  added  my knobs/"cherries"  again  (I'm  obsessed  with  these  things)...



And  in  the  first  week,  I  showed  you  another  favorite  sweet  treat  of  mine--my  granddaughter  Zoie.....so  I'll  end the  last  week  with  this  sweet  little  treat  again...


She's  now  3 1/2  months  old....and  look  at  that!--she  found  her  fingers! --she's  such  a  sweetheart!

Thank  you  Kristin  for  another  fun  summer  of  color--I  really  really  liked  your  idea  this  year.   These  colors  were  all  so  fun  to  work  with.  If  you  want  to  see  more  watermelon  ice--then  get  on  over  to  Kristin's  blog   right now!

beautiful, colorful work, diane...and such a prety in pink grand baby....i love grand babies ;-)

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

That must be your favorite color combination, since you made so many of them. I was amazed that you covered over the first part of each painting. I can barely put on one layer of paint, much less many. These are stunning. And I admit. My favorite color this week is Zoie. She's adorable.
