I love how the plexiglass fits my work table and swear my work area has never been so orderly. I think my muse approved also.
|I am working on an altered book. That is Daniel Smith watercolor ground on the cover.|
While watching the Tigers/Red Wings yesterday after we got home, I set up my plastic fruit in the living room and did a quick sketch - later I added some pastel to it. They are much messier than I expected. They are some of the art supplies I acquired at an estate sale last year.
The night before when I was cutting text and pictures out of Family Circle magazines my neighbor had given me, I found a lovely photo of half a dozen teacups arranged in a tower arrangement and decided to try my hand at sketching those as well. I then added some color to those with oil pastels acquired at the same estate sale.
|So fun, but messy as well. Next time I think I will add the oil pastels with a wet brush.|
And finally, last evening I transferred my Tiger Lily sketch to watercolor paper and hope to begin the watercolor process some time this afternoon.
|I tried to keep the sketch lines light so I won't have to try to erase them later.|
I have my exercise class at 9:30, then have to go into town to pick up a prescription from the doctor's office. Then I will stop at my daughter's for a cup of coffee and a visit. I am picking Miss P up after school to take her for a bite to eat and to help me grocery shop while her little sis, Miss M, is at ballet class. What do you know? Another busy day.....
I hope you are busy and happy and that you are getting some time to be creative - and whoever has been giving my muse shelter and feeding her, thank you. But more importantly, thank you for sending her home.
