And I think her business card is also a work of art.
If you don't already know Barbra Joan and you are into watercolor, you really should go over for a visit. There is a link above.
Now onto some of my personal attempts at growth. I've been eating at least two apples a day for about a month now so what would be more natural than to sketch one. I can't believe I chose a pencil instead of a pen. I spent way too much time erasing and reshaping this one. Next time it is pen.
And a few days ago, I tried those dratted Adirondack chairs again. I am determined to get better at them. As a matter of fact I am planning to sketch the three under the trees in the north yard and make it into a watercolor painting. Practice, practice, practice!
I've found my next favorite workout on the treadmill. I walk slowly for a couple of minutes and then do a slow jog for 30 minutes followed by a slow walk cool down. I also did a bit of weight training on the balance ball. I don't feel sore today, so think I must not have worked with the weights very hard. That has to be a first for me. I seldom do things by halves.
I have pretty much decided the Canson watercolor block is not of the quality that I want to spend a lot of time on, so am planning to cut a piece of Arches and begin again on the boats on the beach with buildings. I also may get started on sketching the Adirondacks under the trees.
The hubster is taking the son to a baseball game this evening and I get Miss 7 (who will be 8 in 5 days) and Miss 6 months here at my house. I think I have the better part of this deal - no long drive, no crowds, a much better view on the tv, and two of my girl tribe to hug and hold and do art.
I hope to have something to share with you tomorrow.
