Watercolor Update

It's slow-going, but getting there. I've been terrified of painting the petals but buckled down this morning and got some color down. Tomorrow I'll get the teacher's opinion and see if I'm headed in the right direction.
Here's what it looked like at the beginning of the month.

I'm Thankful For:

  • The Hubs having every weekend off.
  • Getting the tax refunds back today.
  • A quiet day at work.
  • No severe weather today.
  • A nice, quiet weekend ahead of us.

Background Ideas


I'll be painting the backgroud for my work's productions of Lil' Abner. I came up with two ideas for the background, let's see which one the directors like...

It's the Little Things...


...That make me excited. For example, when I found out that Ingles started selling their own green bags I couldn't wait to buy them. And start using them!
The photo shows that $111 worth of groceries can fit into four green bags. Score! That's much better than bringing home 20-something plastic bags.

I'm Thankful For:

  • Accidentally finding out that Radiohead tickets go on sale tomorrow. (Seriously, I would've been so sad if I missed out on getting really good seats.)
  • Having the money to get these Radiohead tickets.
  • Finishing a really good book, starting another really good book.
  • BookMooch (Fun fun!)
  • MultiVitamins (I've missed taking them these past two days and I've been so tired. So now I know they really do help me out.)

Happy Valentine's Day!


Happy Valentine's Day everyone!
Today's been really nice. I made a cake with a sprinkled heart, read a book for almost 2 hours, shopped for Maz's present, and took a nap. All in all, a peaceful Thursday. Tonight when the hubs gets home we'll have pizza for dinner then get ready for bed. Next week the kiddo is on winter break and hopefully that means I can sleep in a lot.

Painting with Watercolors

A few weeks ago I started taking a one-day-a-week watercolor workshop taught by a well-known local artist. It's a really great opportunity and I'm glad I jumped at the chance to take it. I usually miss the last 30 minutes of it since I have to leave to pick up Mazzy from school but I'm learning, and that's what matters.
So far we've underpainted the Magnolia leaves with Green Gold and now filling them in with Terre Verde. It's a long and tedious task and I should be working on it instead of blogging. I just wanted to show off the "in-progress" shot.

I'm Thankful For:

  • Recent challenges just kinda working themselves out.
  • Help when I needed it.
  • A family clinic in town that stays open until 8 p.m.
  • Lunch date with the hubs.
  • Good conversation.
