This year for Super Bowl since my New Orleans Saints were not playing I decided who I would cheer for by the weather on the morning of February 7th as I walked my dog. If there was blue skies I would root for the Broncos and if cloudy I would root for Carolina. It was blue skies so I cheered Peyton Manning (A New Orleans Connection) and the Denver Broncos. They won because of my support. LOL.

Some time my art experiments work and some times the fail epically. This one is an in between. I like the crisp design which does not always happen with resist techniques but the caulk remains tacky/sticky. I won't be using latex caulk in this manner again.
