Ribbons And Pollywogs

Happy Winter Solstice! After yesterday, the days get longer, and soon we can kiss 2020 good riddance, and enter 2021, the year of positive change and recovery! 😊🙏🥰🌞🙌💖

“Ribbons and Pollywogs” such a silly name, was created with metallic acrylic paint, alcohol ink, pens and, even a balloon. I love the “smushed” veins that appear when you press a balloon on wet paint! You can’t really see the shimmery metallic purple and green paint from this photo, but it looks really cool!

I used to catch pollywogs in the creek behind my house as a kid. Then, I took them home and “raised” them until they turned into little frogs, and then I took them back to the creek and let them go, an early lesson in biology! 🐸

Anyhow, I hope you are enjoying these last few days of 2020! Stay warm, safe, and keep creating!



  1. A fun picture today. loved it. Being in Christmas mood I see a close up of a Christmas tree, but it could be a underwater scene too. 🙂 I learned a new word today – Pollywog. If translating the Norwegian word for a Pollywog it would be – a rumptroll :))

  2. How fun Tiffany. This is adorable and I remember doing the same thing as a kid. This brings back happy memories. What a precious and lovely piece. I also really like all the seaweed too. Beautiful work dear Tiffany. Sending so much love, hugs and wonderful thoughts for 2021 that they can’t be counted, only enjoyed. Love and hugs, Joni

        1. Above 50F???? Don’t do that to me. We go down to -40 (F/C). It’s horrible. “There’s no such thing as bad weather: only bad and inadequate clothing.” Picket line, January 2007, -35C.
