Waterfull action






I think the school count down has begun. Still way more in love with my markers.
My pal Lorraine is visiting starting Thursday( yay) and insists she will convert me to a water color action fan. Here's hoping... Too bad she can't crochet.


Some silly attempts and watercolor exploration.



Just back from North Carolina with my guy. We had a lot of fun and saw many waterfalls. Big gorge hike during a rain pour down. Lots of food and wine sampling. Not Italy, but a good time. Even Louisa the sock monkey enjoyed the trip.

Color full




Still enjoying my summer very much, but miss traveling and my bella Italy. Doing a bit more art, including watercoloring. Still think markers are more fun, but maybe I need a challenge.



Here's the page opened from the first journal page above. Loving these colors right now.



I did this mini watercolor sketch today. Kind of wonky, but oh well.
Soon I will have to start planning for another school year, but at least I have now. Hope you are having a great week.

Troublefull




Summer is here, but I am having trouble doing anything too productive other than reading and lounging. Have gone to the beach several times. Many creative thoughts melding in my head but just started getting the arts onto paper again. I did have a crochet lesson and invented my own Taylor stitches. Can't seem to follow directions too well.



Here's my watercolor attempt for today. I have trouble with this medium and having to wait for the paint to dry. A black pen and marker or colored pencil is more my speed, but the colors everyone is using with the watercolors are so lovely, I just have to keep trying, especially since I am taking Mary Ann Moss's on line sketching class where watercolor is used so beautifully.



This coming week I am taking an Indian cooking class. It should be fun and I heard wine is involved. Hope I can follow those directions at least.
What are you doing this summer? Please let me know, especially if you are traveling someplace nice. It's weird saying home this summer so I want to know what other people are during during my favorite season.
Thanks. Enjoy the warmth of summer.
