Note the date for the closing of the show — it’s up through April 28th — not through the end of the month. This past week has been very social with friends from points east coming for a visit and tour of the show. If you haven’t been yet, please come. We’re getting very positive reviews, and the DIY mandala table is a big hit.

I just watched a YouTube video on doing loose watercolor florals. I’ve long wanted to do botanical illustration, but it intimidates me, so I pull out the book, do a few sketches and then the impatient child has a hissy-fit, and I put it away. I’m lowering my expectations, and going for loose. I have all the equipment to do it, so I hereby commit to myself play with color mixing and putting some of that color on to paper. You probably won’t see the results of this. I’m sure it takes a lot of practice to become proficient, but I won’t get there at all if I don’t start, right?
