Karen's Wild Wild West!

I live near the Chesapeake Bay, so there are no large rocks in my yard. Luckily my sister asked me to go with her to Smith Mountain Lake several weeks ago. My painting shows my family. In the painting is my husband,myself and my daughter. We are outside near a campfire and going up the hill is our dog Uni. I drew my family and dog with the red clay earth mixed with water. I used burnt  campfire wood remains for eyes and Uni's ears and campfire in drawing. This was created with a small stick dipped into clay or burnt cinders. The grass was made by rubbing green leaves on rock. The sun setting was by yellow flowers rubbed on surface.
