Collaged checker board deli paper, with matte gel medium. Watercolor paint background wash, acrylic paint cheese burger, Mod Podge gloss on the meat and tomato, Pigma pen lettering and colored pencil fill in on letters. I saved the deli paper from our trip to Tyee Landing for lunch. The 1/3 pound Angus beef burgers are awesome, and the weather was warm but crisp and clear. We sat on their deck and enjoyed the view of the Umpqua River below. The only place between Crater Lake and the coast with a view of the river in Douglas County.

My cat "Poppy" sleeping on my t-shirt, she was sound asleep so she was holding still. My first attempt at drawing her, I never wanted to try before, but doing Everyday Matters, gave me some confidence I did not have before. I think it came out pretty good. She is so hard to photograph because she is black and shiny, so she absorbs light but reflects it too.
This is a sketch in colored pencil of my 3-D quilt, that is sitting on a shelf in front of me. It is about 20" tall and 5" diameter birch tree, made from my original photo printed on fabric and thread painted, with 3-D leaves and butterflies.
