A Self Portrait

This morning I was struggling with my usual frustrations: making breakfast, walking the dogs, sketching a picture, working on a painting, sweeping the floor, etc. Because I'm a morning person, and I did not sleep well last night, I did not know what to sketch. After some serious thought, I decided to sketch myself  :). 
 Of course, I am much younger looking here, but what the heck.
 I thought I would share my sketch with my blog friends.
Have a nice spring day!

Some Watercolor

 Recently,  I have gone back to using some traditional watercolor to create a couple of  paintings.
Here are the results.
I just finished the Daisies and Oxalis today.


The second painting, Building A Sandcastle,  was done a few weeks ago.
I feel like there is so much more to learn about capturing details in a painting/
I don't want to overwork the paint, so I stopped before I damaged the images.

Sleeping Beauty

Over the weekend, my daughter and her oldest and best friend went to the Boston Opera House to see Sleeping Beauty. It was a fun experience. There were many little girls in the audience dressed up in their tutus and tiaras watching the performance. Of course, I wanted to reminisce about the show, so I did a little sketch.
