Bounties from a Concerned Owl

*Don’t forget to sign-up for the giveaway mentioned in the previous post!  You could get three small pieces of art plus an ephemera pack of vintage papers.

The pop-pop-popping has gone on for days despite bans and warnings of fire-hazard.  Folks celebrating a distorted history only half-remembered from days in the classroom, unable to withhold the pyrotechnic gratifications until the 4th of July.  But now it’s here: it’s Independence Day.  Happy 4th of July to those here in the states who celebrate it.  (And because I taught American National Government at the university, I feel the need to share a link to the Declaration of Independence, whose signing we are celebrating this day, and encourage you to read not just the well-known first line of the second paragraph, but the entire document.  It can be enlightening!)

Bounties from a Concerned Owl

I wasn’t able to post these when they arrived in the mail because of technical difficulties, but, wow!  Suzanne (a.k.a. Concerned Owl) sent a marvelous birthday gift!  (We share a birthday on the same day of the year).  The canvas below is so beautiful and vibrant, and has oodles and oodles of texture.  I feel energized every time I look at it.

And if that weren’t enough, she added a plethora of other goodies to the mix, a lovely bounty for me to play with!
