At any rate, a couple of weeks ago I was working on a watercolor challenge of a vase of flowers and wasn't at all happy with it, but I did post it. I went to the library yesterday to pick up a couple of books from the interloan system (I DID get a lot done yesterday) and they were both on oil pastels. Looking through them got me hot to work again with my Caran d'Ache Neocolor II crayons. And I did. Here is the result. I think it is a bit dark overall, but I like it much better than how it was before.
And here is the book I am working on:
|I've added a strip of wallpaper to the inside of the spine to reinforce it.|
I haven't yet chosen my endpapers, but will share that with you when I do. Today I will sew the signatures together and then finish it.
I am expecting the Hughes.net technician this morning to replace something on my satellite dish so that I will get more reliable service. I sure hope it works. While I am waiting for him I am drinking my coffee and planning my day. There was a wonderful thunderstorm just before I arose this morning and everything smells fresh and there is a misty fog outside. Quite pretty actually.
If you haven't yet entered the drawing for the watercolor book, you can do so by leaving a comment on yesterday's post.
