... make great opportunities to clean up my house in a hurry! As usual, we had several projects underway, including 4 boxes in the living room to fill and ship to Ukraine, clean laundry waiting to be put away, etc., last night when we came home from church. We discovered we had a message from dh's cousin saying they were in town to show their son the local university campus.
We had a very productive morning! haha... and now my house is freshly vacuumed, cleaned, and straightened. The only drawing I've done today was during my son's swimming lesson this morning. Here is a sketch from a swim lesson last Thursday.
I've been thinking about starting my own blog lately. I decided to just jump in with both feet! I intend to add to it occasionally, and include photos and sketches as I get a chance. I'll start with a little watercolor sketch I did yesterday in response to a sketching thread on Wetcanvas.com. I usually paint from my own reference photos, but this time I walked outside with my small watercolor kit and painted this lilly. The scan turned the flower very yellow, and all my blues disappeared, so I'm going to have to work on sorting that kind of thing out.
