A rainy Sunday morning


Sat down with my new journal and painted a little sketch of a memory back  in 1948. Used watercolor travel set (love the colors in the pans) and my newest pen with the water in the handle. What a great little travel pen. No need for a jar of water. Also used a micro pen for the writing and outlining. IS THERE REALLY A SANTA CLAUS....Most definitely yes because he came to my house in 1948.

First Monday Sketchers after Cape Cod


This was our fabulous model this morning. Elisa Campbell sat for us and we really enjoyed drawing her. This one was drawn on my ipad with paper 53. One hour!

Another produced this one! Also in paper 53 on my ipad

She was a terrific model. She lives in Amherst, Mass.

At the breakfast table - fruit painted on a fruit plate. Watercolor


Love this Franciscan vintage "fruit" pattern. Shopped for an orange with leaves still attached. Found one. Size 9" x 5" Watercolor on 140# paper

Watercolor on Yupo Paper

Drip! Drip! Drip! The best part about yupo watercolor paper is the dripping of pretty watercolors. 5" x 7".

Little digital drawing on my ipad this morning


Do you know what these are? They are little plastic containers for making frozen popsicles. Comes in a package of four...pretty pastel colors. I only show three because one is still in the freezer filled with coconut milk, coconut, vanilla, crushed pineapple and sugar free Hershey chocolate. Delish!
