It snowed yesterday and today – just a few inches.
I took a quiet walk down to my black willow tree.
Later, Len joined me on another jaunt.
This is my best effort of a bluebird in watercolors. I see room for a lot of improvement but it is much better than the one I painted about 6 weeks ago. I’ve been drawing and/or painting most days and taking an online class – all of which has helped so much.
We are finally painting the family room/Dave’s office. I chose Benjamin Moore’s Bruton White paint color. It’s what they call a greige (a greyish beige or beigy grey).
I’m thinking of taking a watercolor class focusing on skies so I’ve been looking for interesting skies.
Above and below are photos taken from our front porch one early morning a few days ago. Above is facing southeast and below is facing east.
While taking the photo below I’m facing north/northwest. In person the trees almost looked like they were on fire. This happens often and I’m not sure what causes it.
We started a 1000 piece puzzle the day after Christmas and completed it the following day. We were on a mission! It was fun! All of our children were with us for Christmas including Sam’s boyfriend, Luca. Other than the puzzle – we ate!
My sister, Melissa, and her two daughters, Emily (behind the camera) and Mary visited us last weekend. We met up in Charlottesville to see Samantha’s Dear Lilith exhibit. We had lunch at Bizou in C’ville and came home for dinner and made Jambalaya.
We got up on the late side Sunday morning and took a walk at Thornrose Cemetery.
