I received a beautiful picture postcard from Christine Brooks, and I knew I wanted to paint the image. An Ibis, walking in a cross walk. Such a graphic composition. Just noticed I have him walking on the edge of the cross walk.
I was intimidated about trying to paint this bird. But again, the sketchbook made it less about “grand” perfection, and more about practice. I’m pretty happy with my first Ibis. Thanks Christine, for the surprise!

It’s here. Leslie’s painting challenge starts in three days. Last week I thought about my palette for the challenge. I don’t think my color choices have changed much since the September Round. To get it straight in my head, and to find out which supplies I need, I made a color chart. I used a hinge pin to dab the paint on. Less mess.
Now I can clearly see what I have in stock, and which paints are gloss or matte. I reorganized my art cart, most used items close at hand. You all know how much I love to organize, LOL. I even started a couple of small pieces.
So why do I feel so antsy?
Have you been to Dollar Tree lately? They have collage papers in stock. Three colorways in multiple patterns. Pretty nifty.
