Crane Beach 8"x 10" acrylic on paper

Here is the beginning of my "woodcut " tee shirt design for Crane beach in Ipswich.
I plan to go into the marsh grass with white and emphasize the beach roses in the foreground, and I want to make the sky a bit more dramatic.  I found the watercolor I was using to bleed into the white so I switched to acrylic.
This is Winnie- she is obsessed by the 5 golfish in my pond.
She spends the whole day looking at them. Oh Winnie...
And finally here is my studio with these giant mystery plants I transplanted  from
 the roadside- I love them but after the flowers fade I'm getting rid of them,,, I fear that they might be some toxic mutant weed!

That weed looks like Jurassic Park! Oh Winnie, tell Mommy to let you 'watch' Ollie - then you won't have to watch fish!

Nice design, Sally! Are you in the Tshirt business now?
