Tracking Hue- monthly banners
Average Rating: ( 0 votes)
I always try to change out my Hue banner every month to reflect the weather outside, a mood, or just a theme I am currently obsessing about. Each banner is created from little snippets of my pet portrait paintings , which were painted with gouache, an opaque watercolor medium, on Bristol vellum paper. Not to worry, the actual paintings are safely with their owners; these are just copied from archived scans. Getting ready to save February's banner, I realized that this blog is going on 5 years! Can it be? Here's a look back through the years for your enjoyment: 2007 February Cold, cold, cold (we were still living in Baltimore in '07) March Raining a lot- things starting to grow April yellow flowers blooming May thinking about swimming June It's getting hot July okay, very hot August um, are we done with the heat yet? September ah, fall colors October more autumn leaves November i must have been on an orange kick.... December brrr, its cold! 2008 January It's a fresh new year February Thinking about ice March Yeah, spring! April Flying high after my Washington Post interview May Mixing things up with multiple colors. Getting crazy now.. June Let's celebrate- I'm moving back to CA! ?

January February more loosey goosey this year with colors. not season-related March April My birthday month- let's celebrate with pink May June July August September October We found out we're having a baby.

Why not pink! 2010 January hm, maybe I could recycle some 2007 banners February embracing cheesy Valentine's Day March ? April dropped the ball. May ? June I had our daughter, Nina Sophia. All organized life goes out the door. ? July Sleep? What's sleep? No blogging for me this month August Determined to get back in the swing of things. An artsy banner with scroll work ?
