Mermaid Murals and Midnight Roses...
Well, it's time for my once-a-year journey into watercolor... This weekend I'll be enjoying the teaching of Soon Y. Warren... really, the only person who ever inspires me to touch a brush.
I was in a dark mood when I decided to push the paint around a bit in hopes of not feeling quite as awkward in the the upcoming class... but, time has been slim and practice time VERY limited. So, I'll just be jumping in the deep... again.
If you're familiar with watercolor, you can see several of the lessons I managed to remind myself NOT to do in this little exercise. ;) Still, I'm feeling a little excited... watercolor can do that to you. It participates. And, it is a worthy friend or foe. Either way, I'll be taxing my brain for three days. Wish me luck.
On, a lighter note... I enjoyed Mermaid Mural time with Karsyn this past week. She was a very intense little Paintress! And, did beautiful work!
Her sister, Little Lady was on Noni's hip and the saddest thing of the week is that I have no photos! She was VERY busy trying to help Noni capture these few moments (there were dozens that were way too blurry to see!). At seven months old now, she is a busy little bundle of PURE JOY!!
Sad. Sad. That I didn't get a final shot of Karsyn's masterpiece! It was fantastic and great fun!! Thank you, Aunt Amanda, for the excellent idea.
If ever there was a moment that I might forget what a wonderful, kind, generous group of women I enjoy knowing through your blogging, you brought it sharply to my attention with all of your sweet words about Aunt Dot and Miss Ellen. Thank you again and again. I know so many of you are "Aunt Dots" in your own right... I am blessed to know all of my Ladies of Inspiration. Thank you.
