Photo of the Day and Packing for Watercolor Workshop

Today's photo is a favorite of mine that I never get tired of looking at - it is a poppy from the side and shows the wonderful color of the underside.

I am getting packed for my 3-day watercolor workshop with Cheap Joe at the Holland Art Center in Holland, Michigan. I don't have much watercolor to take, just the pansies I showed you. I am so hoping this will be a wonderful introduction to watercolor. Cheap Joe has a reputation for putting on great workshops - I'll keep you informed. I am taking the laptop and a camera so should be able to post all week. 

The hubster and I have been talking about buying a new car for a couple of months now and are planning to give my son a good deal on my car. Yesterday we went and chose the car we want and we are finalizing the paper work this morning before I take off on my art trip.

I need to finish packing as my sister-in-law is arriving at my house around 11 this morning and she and I will be driving to my sister's house for lunch along the way. I hope to have a lovely day! We'll then drive to Holland and get settled into our digs and be ready to start class tomorrow morning.

I'm going to put a quick load of laundry in the washer and get out a small suitcase - I haven't really thought about clothes yet. I think I'd better get a bite to eat, too, as it will be going on 2 by the time we get to our lunch destination.

I think I'd better get on my horse.....
