Does the same thing happen to you as it does to me...once you reach September on the calendar, you feel like you're sliding down the rest of the year to Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
But this post is for August, just finished yesterday....

Another design from my Art Deco book.
Still trying to figure out good colors for art deco. I have to Google it every time!

From my Native American Mandalas book, this Cheyenne design represents the forked blossoms
of duality. Duality = "an instance of opposition or contrast between two concepts or two aspects
of something." Seems fitting right now?!

Another design from my Kaleido Color book on black-background paper.
It doesn't take much to make me happy!

This Mind Body Zen design looks so much better in its original 9 x 11.5 inches.
After coloring 528 petals, 528 seeds, 528 anthers, and 43 stamens, I felt like I was swimming
in sunbathed wildflowers. Happy end to the summer!
Now that it's September, HAPPY END TO THE SUMMER, indeed!
