Tropical Hibiscus

Hi~

Brought this tropical hibiscus inside a few weeks ago. Yesterday, in the cold basement she was very sad.

So I brought her upstairs, placed her in front of the warm wood stove and this morning I found she gave me this flower as a "Thank You"

So glad I brought her up. Wonder with the limited lighting, if she'll flower through the winter?

Tick, Tick, Tick

I heard the old, familiar sound of the mixed precipitation on the window, this morning. So not ready for the cold.

Brrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Cannot believe they are calling for flurries tomorrow! We've had blizzards canceling our Halloween in the past... I am just not ready for all of it this year.

HIBISCUS

Hi~

Started working on this hibiscus drawing while waiting in the dentist's office. Made appointments for the girls and I.

Turned out I needed some periodontal work done. I am allergic to novocaine, so the dentist broke the appointment up into two different visits.

Started off as a pencil drawing, during the first waiting room visit. Had the pen in my purse so I added that, then. When I went home, I added the colored pencils and tickled the drawing more while waiting for the second appointment.

New Hampshire Earthquake

Yep! We had one last night! A small one, 2.5. Seems we have had about 3 or 4 earthquakes, since I moved into the state.

Been A Spell - Sorry!

Hi~

It's been a little while since I oosted and lots of things have been happening - some fun and some not so fun. Let's stick to the fun (I think that's a better story. Everyone has a bummer story and needn't to hear more, right? Stay positive and focus on the good)

"Well, what's the good" you ask?
A new laptop (or soon, at least) for starters. My old Mac Mini did a "not so mini meltdown". Pheuu I say because I never really liked the whole "workstation" set up and being tethered to the wall. No privacy and sometimes I like to curl up somewhere quiet with a good movie.

Taking a watercolor class Tuesday nights, at our high school. I always feared watercolor and thought I couldn't be so exact, the first time. Then I hit another painter's block which was driving me crazy. So when I saw the class offered my fingers hit "attend" before my brain could butt in. However, I am so glad I did sign up.

First week, we painted bleeding circles (better than bleeding hearts!); learning about how the colors blend, wet into wet. After the first week's class, I was so inspired I painted this:


10x8 Reference photo is another from the library of Wetcanvas - if you haven't checked WC out, you MUST. Even if you are not an artist... the work there is so wonderful and inspiring (it's not just a library of images)

Second week, A fun two week project; a tree with paisley leaves. Fun seeing all the different artist's interpretations of the directions. And this week, I am also working on a watercolor at home!

It's so incredible how much this has workshop helped with my painter's block and how it has allowed me to paint things I wouldn't have done in acrylics/oils!
