And this is what the original pour looked like before I added Sir Strut . . .

I've given myself a little challenge to do at least several of these. I have another waiting in the wings to show you next time but for now I thought I would introduce you to Lars. I did not get to meet Lars personally. He showed up at the Depot Museum (where I work one day a week) and my friend, who also works there, asked if she could take his photo. It seems that this young man, who is from Germany, has taken it upon himself to skate across the U.S. from one coast to the other.
Evidently he did not want to carry a backpack, so he devised this carrier to pull behind him as he skates. Since I wasn't there to ask any questions, I'm not quite sure how this works. I'm guessing it attaches somehow to his waist because I would think you would need your hands free as you skate. However it works, if this young man has skated all the way from New York (where he started) to Wallace, Idaho, and is still smiling like that, then all I can say is he must have an indomitable Spirit. Many kudos to him and a safe journey.

My friend, who took the photo of Lars, also sent me this photo of a 'Bird Cloud' that she took. It took me a minute or two (or three) to see it, but once I did, it was pretty evident. Especially the head and beak. Appropriate since I've been on a bird kick in my painting this week. :)
