Sorry I haven't had much to add lately, but have been rather absorbed with the birth of our last grandchild who just happened to be full blown Trizome 13. Matthew was an amazing little 36 hour miracle. Don't know what more to say than we were blessed to get to meet him and love him.

Working a different schedule now and really struggling to get back to either my drawing or painting. Am still taking my drawing class, thank goodness, and reading my art magazines. Miss my watercolor class, but will hopefully be able to get back in the not too distant future.

The plein air workshop with Steve Dougherty was great fun. We had a really fun group of plein air watercolor artists from the local area. You can view two of my paintings - Plein Air - Mission Espada and Plein Air - Japanese Gardens

Just an update. I am still taking my drawing class and really enjoying it. Getting ready for a big adventure in April. I will be taking a plein air workshop, which is a first for me. Landscapes are not my strong point, so this should be very interesting. I'm really looking forward to it.
Something new for you to look at - I added a drawing and painting that I worked on in December. Check out: Drawing for my son and Painting for my son. Also, The Pavillion.

Working on a new drawing, still taking my drawing class, and loving it - and hopefully getting better at it (probably couldn't have gotten worse so that has been an easy "given"). Still taking my watercolor class although life has been busy in other ways, and I have had to miss a few of those. Love my watercolor though, and don't think I will ever give up on it. But, I must say that the acrylics have been much more enticing than I would have ever expected, and I have always loved the intriguing effects and design work that can be accomplished with multimedia. [For those of you on grammar patrol, my apologies for any inadvertent run on sentence(s).]
Latest drawing: Artist at Work

Just got back today from the last day of a really fun workshop by Nick Simmons. It was great fun, I learned a lot and even got a chance to use all those vivid colors that I love so much. Now to try to balance my drawing time and my painting time. Workshop with Nicholas Simmons
