Late night watercolor play. I resisted the urge to fill in the shapes completely, and outline. I added interest with a texture sheet. What do you think… unfinished, or rustic?
I have a handful of small paper scraps that need using. I have decided I need to paint fairly large. 6 x 6 to 12 x12 seems to be good for me. Maybe I should say my eyes and hands have made the decision for me. LOL. It’s getting harder to paint small details.
We’ve had perfect puffy clouds the last couple of days. I wanted to paint the sky.
Enjoying my small paper play. I hope you can find time for the things you enjoy this weekend.
I thank you God for this most amazing day, for the leaping greenly spirits of trees, and for the blue dream of sky and for everything which is natural, which is infinite, which is yes. E. E. Cummings

Hello! Hello Rain! Rain on Mingus. Dark and foreboding. The sun is above us now, but we had two brief spritzing’s. Heaven! I hope it lasts.
Awhile back I took these photos. I changed phones, and the new camera is great! I need to learn how to use it.
I’m very excited. On my old phone this would just look like a fuzzy yellow blob. Never knew there was a trail on the hill. Wow! Haha. Amen for free upgrades!
The Sun loves the Moon so much that he dies every night to let her breathe, and in return, she reflects his love. Jeffrey Fry
I am taking part in Karen Abend’s Sketchbook Revival. This is my second event. I am days behind, but I am having so much fun. You receive two sessions a day, videos to follow along. And each instructor offers free gifts, more lessons, tips, or inspirations. The workshop runs for several weeks and it is free. You work at your own pace, and can start at anytime. Take a look!
I love meeting the instructors, new artists to follow, and learning new ways to be creative. Watercolor, mixed media, collage, journaling. And that is just the first days!
ps… the rain has cleared. LOL 🙂
Wishing you JOY!

I had the urge to paint. Already March 15. First painting of the month. Whoa. I always feel guilty that March is a month of little artistic output for me. I am always very busy after the gathering.
First with the group blog post, and Pinterest board. Then with organizing the group digital files. All of the graphics I created, the banner, album covers, and inspirationals. Files I used for painting reference or inspriation get moved to my permanent Inspo file, or trashed.
You know how much I love to organize. Sometimes I think I make a mess just so I can clean it up. LOL. KIdding.
I spent a week working on my Society6 shop. They added new items, like a puzzle and a desk mat. I had to approve new items, and adjust the artwork or pattern to look best for each. Add to that the unfortunate surprise that some items I had turned “on” were off. And some that I had set as “off” were on. Not good. I have 92 designs listed, and there are over 60 items that can be made available for each of them. Huge task. More work there.
I am still home bound. I had an x-ray done today. Next Thursday I see the lung specialist. I’ll be posting an update. Praying that the Covid damage to my lungs is not as bad as expected.
I have to say though, that It feels great to be productive. Even if it is behind the scenes, and no one knows but me. Haha. I even have my next two posts planned.
