Grid exercise, September 24, 2006

I've been following a thread that contains a conversation between a couple of artists that are trying to journal in "grid" fashion. I have enjoyed some of the things they have put out, and thought I would try it today. I took some memories from an outing that my family recently made to the historic home of Martha Berry in Rome Georgia. I like the way it came out.

It's a great idea and yours is super. I like the way the paint brushes extend out of the grid.

This is great--wonderful water technique and really interesting the way you divided the page unevenly. I also looked at all of your other recent stuff and as usual really enjoyed it. Thanks for the invite to visit on EDM!
