Full of clogged ink

Hello hello friends,
Thanks for visiting. Cold again in the south. Been busy in the studio when my fingers have not turned blue and numb. It's not really THAT cold here, but my fingers have issues.
Playing with a lot of art supplies lately due to several on line classes. I hope I can keep up. My printer has NOT kept up. Would love suggestions. If you love your printer please let me know the details.

Here is the beginning of a new journal page. It starts out with a copy of my lesson plans. Hope to have the completed pages to show you next time.

Have you seen this painting I got at Round Top? I love it. A lady there thought it was a self portrait of me.
Hope you have a warm week. I will probably be bundled up.

Full of chilly weather

Alas, this face was not happy to have to turn the heat on for the first time. It's hibernation time. I'm going to try to make friends with winter this year, but I am not sure how. Actually it has warmed up a bit, but not for long.
I am in love with tonal art these days. Paintings using only the the grey tones. Jeanne Oliver seems to excel at it so I have been watching some of her videos. Sorry I can't seem to link on my ipad.

The marsh is starting to brown for winter. I know its still fall, but in my house it's more like winter. Can you see the osprey on the branch?
It is nice walking weather.

I love this Matisse copy one of my second graders painted. So modern and has a fifties look.
Here's another that I really like.

Hope you are having a good week. I will try to return soon.
