Deception Pass

Tiny islands at Deception Pass.

I realize it's been a while since I last wrote. I had a bad bout of COVID last month and I'm still feeling the effects. The good news is that I got a lot of reading done and I started working with some new art materials! I'm done working with paper (for now) and I've switched over to using birch plywood in my art. I find that I can laser cut my desired shapes fairly easily and paint the pieces using acrylic paint. Learning about paint mixing has been really eye opening. I like being able to mix the exact color I want without relying on the limited palette of colored paper.
