Home Of The Armadillo

Home Of The Armadillo by Leada Wood ©
This is another little gem I created for the 5X7 Art SPLURGE at the Arthouse at the Jones Center in Austin, Texas, opening May 12th. This little critter was living in my flower bed between the iris and hydrangeas...alas he is no more.  I collaged a copy of a Texas map onto matt board, applied 1/2 gesso and 1/2 water to veil the map a little then painted with watercolors and used a wash of ink on my little critter. This one also has the Austin area of the map.
