Partial to Peaches

Partial to Peaches   watercolor on Khadi   5.75 x 18
Making something from nothing.  An unusual slice of leftover Khadi paper.  A leftover skinny black frame.  What can I do with these?  This is the way I cook.  This is the way I live.  Making from leftovers.  This all became an elongated work of a basket of peaches...totally wabi sabi.  In fact, the paper wasn't quite long enough, so I stitched on another piece using a zig zag stitch on the sewing machine.  A watery background tone was added.  Even the stitches took on a nice tone.  These unusual pieces make my heart sing.
