This one is from a trip to Charleston in 2009! Yes, that is how far back my unprocessed images go. :(
And one from a trip home during Christmas 2010:
My mom's cat Bozo, a tuckered out Tom who is quite the scrapper as you can tell by his poor ears.
Today was also good for traditional art. I started a painting of a dragonfly (to be shared later this week!) and completed a watercolor for Catherine Constance. We are swapping art pieces across the pond. She is sending me a little French girl drawing and I'm sending her a watercolor of my wildflower thicket. I wanted to create something that was very me and as you all know, my garden is just that! :) The hand-lettering freaked me out a bit as I was afraid I would mess up and spell something wrong and I was doing it all in ink the first time out.
But it turned out a-okay and will now be on it's way to Catherine. Catherine lives in France and is such a talented artist. Check out her blog.
"The Wildflower Thicket". Watercolor and ink on 8x8 watercolor paper.
It felt good to be creative again. I'm not good with distractions and renovations are a big one. The only thing I managed to do while the patio was being torn up was go to the mall and Butterfly World (thus all the pictures of butterflies I've been posting on Flickr and Facebook) and I did one little sketch in my Moleskine that had a nod to Cubism and I practiced drawing hands:
Sorry for the blurry photo but I took it with the iPhone at night. :)
In the Moleskine: practicing stylized hands.
