Week 24 - Use Book Paper or Text

This week, we are using old book paper or text for our challenge.  I decided to rip a page out of an old book and simply sketch a picture and paint!  Having just visited Amsterdam and spending an afternoon in the Van Gogh museum, I was inspired by the colors, lines and painterly style of Vincent.  Please know, that I would never attempt to compare my own work to Van Gogh!  I just felt moved to use my paintbrush and paints in a looser fashion and work on a painterly style.  The result is a little pathway strewn with weeds and wildflowers that pass by some old, quaint houses.

I can't wait to see how you use your paper and text!
