Monotypes

As promised, I have some photos of the new monotypes to share with you.   All three of them were hand pulled, using my trusty wooden spoon, and they measure 5 x 7 inches. 

This one I think I will call "Hot Air Balloons."

The warm desert sun has returned, and it is slowly drying up the mud puddles.  We have rain forecast for Wednesday, once again.  So much rain for this dry desert, we just don't know what to do with ourselves.  It is just the opposite of Colorado.  Here, they have to plow the gravel and sand off of the roads after a heavy rain.  The water washes the gravel and sand over the roads, making driving a challenge.  In Colorado, they plowed the snow off of the roads and ADDED sand and gravel for traction.  For some reason, that distinction has stuck with me.  When you are in a new place, it is the little differences that somehow seem more poignant.  I can't explain it.

This is a short, wimpy post, I know!  Just don't have much to say. 
This little Gold Cottontail I reworked in pastel after it had dried.
