Watercolor, Neocolor IIs and AurynInk

I spent just a little bit of time while Miss Z was napping to begin a wet into wet still life - a pear and an apple. I obviously had too much water.

So I added a bit of Neocolor IIs.

And then added a bit of water.

Later in the evening after Zoƫ went home, I played with AurynInk on my iPad to make this tree.

I've done my 35 minutes on the treadmill, mostly uphill, then had a shower and went to Meijer's grocery shopping. The little girls are all coming over this evening to hang the dated ornaments (a yearly tradition). I picked up some hot dogs and brats and some crescent rolls to wrap around them and bake them in the oven. I believe they are referred to as pigs in a blanket. I will also whip up some cheesy potatoes from a package mix. I also bought 6 decorated cupcakes and half a dozen Christmas cookies. I will try to get pictures.

What about you? What are you doing today? Does it involve some kind of annual tradition? Some time for art? Do tell.....



  1. Oooooh! These are both done very well ~ the fruits look lovely and juicy and the tree is very 'zen' ~

    PS. thanks for the lovely holiday haiku ~ delightful!

    Did grocery shopping ~ for the holidays ~ not my favorite task ~ but it is grim, gray and rainy today, yesterday and tomorrow ~ Have my tree and window lights on to cheer us up ^_^

  2. Very nicely done on the fruit and tree :) Sounds like a wonderful day with tons of goodies! We are having such a warm day here today that the goldfinches are singing like it's spring! But tomorrow the bad weather comes in and brings cold, wet, rain and snow mixes. I don't mind winter - as long as it never gets below 35F! ha ha

  3. great fruit. i like seeing how it came together in stages. your iPad art is impressive, too!

  4. Fine fruit, and your iPad tree --- well, I'm so impressed with not only your art, but also your computer knowledge and skills! hugs, nancy
