I thought I’d be so busy with Grey Matter, that I wouldn’t have the time or energy for anything overseas this year. But – fate (and Art Safari!) has a way of throwing things at you, and when this trip showed up, I decided to take it!
So, I’ve renewed my watercolor palette, and switched out compose blue for a cobalt turquoise. (So yummy!)
A little geography quiz for you, can you name this country? Hint – it’s NOT in the northern hemisphere!
While everyone else was wishing a happy new year yesterday, I was busy minimizing, a favorite past time of mine. I emptied out a rarely used closet, only to find these:
So many art supplies!
Yes, of course I was ecstatic to find sketchbooks and watercolor pads that I had completely forgotten existed! The negative part is – just before my Morocco trip, I went looking for sketch pads to bring, and ended up ordering new ones because I couldn’t find these, tsk, tsk.
Instead of sketching these two drawerfuls, I will instead get right to finishing up my trip sketches and blog posts. AND, I guess I’ll “need” to make a “resolution” to use my sketchbooks, and not hide them away where they’ll be forgotten.
My daughter and son-in-law are expecting – a baby girl! Here is a sketch done for the shower invite. (Note: Sorry for the grey background on my recent images. Blogger seems to be doing this, even when I change it to a white background. 🙁 )
…all track of time! These were another purchase from the Farmer’s Market yesterday. I got after eating the dragon fruit (another post on that), I knew I wanted these for dinner, but also wanted to sketch them. So, when I was finally done sketching, it was 9 pm! A late dinner, but surely worth the wait.
