GIVE US MORE SUNSHINE


I came across a free newspaper last week called the Positive News.  How nice to find a newspaper chock full of positive news ....... I just couldn't resist a browse ...... and my goodness I was rewarded with all kinds of interesting and positive news. 

One article in particular caught my eye entitled Give Us More Sunshine!    Mmmmm .... there is no doubt we Brits at least have had a paucity of said Sun this Summer so the article had to become my  PRINTED WORD for the Three Muses this week.

After clipping and scanning  the news article into Photoshop,  I persuaded  my long suffering  grand daughter to pose with scissors  so I could 'clip' the headline, then to achieve some softness I added one of my own flower textures. 

Thanks for looking.

That headline applies to NZ too, rain, rain & more rain for days! Love your style here, Ann, once again an outstanding work of art!

This is fantastic Ann and how brilliant to find a newspaper spreading the good news. You have to search high and low in ours to find the tiny articles! Love your artistic expression in this and a wonderful creative theme this week!

Ann, I love your idea of reading good news, and your "Give us more sunshine" piece fits so well this morning, which is very chill and rainy here in Finland. Thank you for a great challenge theme!

You are right, it is a self-portrait, pencil sketch I did about 8 years ago during an art lesson at the school where I worked, It wasn't supposed to be me creating art but my student!!!
