It was nice to go down to the studio before the sunrise this morning and work. I'd love to spend the whole day there but panic calls from my daughter have begun so who knows how long I have.
For now, I have a card for Chip. Chip has had some serious foot issues resulting in adjustments to his life and passions. You can read Chip's story HERE .
One thing Chip does enjoy is fishing. So I created a small lake with a 'no limit' option. Chip can relax and enjoy a long day of drowning worms.
I used the masking technique to create a bank and lake full of fish. I chose the pine tree background from Noble Deer (retired SU), LePlume markers in green tones. The sky and lake colors were created using SU chalks. Those little fish swimming just below the surface are actually small fish buttons from Jesse James themed buttons. It looks like Chip's already snagged a big fish (Mike's $1). I used an actual fishing hook and line.
Here's wishing Chip a speedy and full recovery so he's home with his family soon!
