I also have a photo of a bird that I have never seen at my house, but I see from time to time at my Mom's. It is, I believe, an Evening Grosbeak.
It is good to be back home, even though I had a good visit up north and saw (and hugged) siblings Mary, Kathy, Molly, Mike, Jane, and Susie (the birthday girl). I also got a couple of hugs from Molly's granddaughter. Isn't she a beauty?
I didn't get much art time because I was busy visiting, watching the Tigers, playing Yahtzee and Cribbage, chauffeuring, cooking - you know how it is when you visit family.
I did make a quick sketch of the old house where my Mom lived as a young girl and hope to make some kind of watercolor painting of it.
It isn't much, but it gives me the information I need to paint from.
I am tutoring a student in Algebra at 10 this morning and hope to grab a bite to eat and then get on the treadmill before she gets here. It is funny how I miss the routine when I am away. I think I need to run some errands later today, but hope to do some watercolor later.
I was supposed to start a watercolor class on Monday evening, but had to be out of town, so will go for the first one next Monday. I can't wait and will tell you all about it afterward.
