A new painting.

It's been a long time since I've painted anything. There, I said it. It's not like I'm not doing anything creative though. I've been reading and knitting (a lot) and making some cards, but I haven't been painting, unless you count painting my son's bedroom. So, about two weeks ago, I had motivation to finish a painting for the Holland Friends of Art Members show. I work better with a deadline, an empty frame complete with a mat already cut, a blank sheet of watercolor paper and no excuses. I must admit I was a little nervous. What was I going to paint? How would it turn out? Would it be done in time for the show? I selected a photo that I took several years ago near Asheville, North Carolina and dove in. I am happy with how it turned out. Not completey, but I am my worse critic. The best part is that I really enjoyed the process and am looking forward to the next piece. I might even have to place an order for more paper and a couple of more tubes of paint.

By the way, the Sky Scarf is going well and I'll post an update on or about February 1. Stay tuned.
