I worked on the little (6 x 9) watercolor of the deer and while it's not that great, I am posting it and another one because you have to start somewhere. Remember to click on the pictures for a closer view.
Earlier in the month I did a painting of the same size (6 x 9) of a wintry scene of birds. I followed along with the artist on Artist Network TV and even used the line drawing that was supplied, but the birds not only look like emus struggling to stay on a branch, the one on the left appears to be wearing a bird mask instead of having a bird face. But I'm learning as I go...
Sometimes the photos that you take aren't the best reference photos, so I'll let you decide if either one of these feel right to you. If fact, I would love someone would paint their version, if they want or simply state your opinion of the photo.
Here is an closeup shot of my spring jonquils, I have other shots to choose from, if anyone is interested in seeing them, but a daffodil is a daffodil, isn't it?
The fall foliage on our street is always so vibrant that I'm thinking about doing something from this photo...
To prove that sometimes I do have a domestic urge, here is a shot of my take on macaroni and tomatoes.
EVOO with seasonings and a bit of chopped onion and celery. After browning and draining what little grease was there, I added one can of diced tomatoes, about one half can of filtered water and a handful of orzo pasta. I let it simmer covered, about fifteen minutes. I like a very soft pasta, so I can pretend I'm a kid again, eating beef-a-roni. It turned out to be very tasty and gave me something warm to eat while the hubby noshed on his chilli.
I'm still working on a needlework project and a gal at the gym wants me to make a newborn owl hat for her friend, so I am planning on staying busy. I'm thinking about abandoning my weight loss blog and periodically posting things of that nature here. Blogging seems to be slowing down some and I'm never sure how much interest there is in hearing about my little life here in the burbs of the South.
In any event, I'm alive and kickin' and have my cataract consultation next week. Wish me luck on that. I'll keep you posted. Take care and give everyone a big old hug and kiss and say it's from me.
