Saturday night potluck

These are quick candid pictures, no posers here! We had potato chowder, arugula salad, homemade Buddha bread, homemade jalapeno cornbread, roasted vegetables, and carrot cake. It was a carbo-licious dinner.

Poor Anna is on the floor stretching her back, but that doesn't stop her enjoying her wine!

Collage page with patterned papers

This is a quote from Henri Matisse. First I painted the patterns on paper, then cut out the letters and glued them to the page. Joanne (the teacher whose class I'm in) used marker ink for the background, but I'm using what I have: watercolor paint and Inktense pencils.

Working on big decorated letters

So, I've been painting a bit during our 3-day weekend. 

Messing around in the sketchbook

More Classwork for Joanne Sharpe

This was about painting marks using a brush and watercolors.
Markers would work, too, of course, but she's encouraging the class to paint.
It's not supposed to 'be' anything except practice making doodles, letters, and shapes with the brush.

Classwork for Joanne Sharpe

This was about using white opaque watercolor to white-out the background paint layer. I like the left page better, where the white isn't as thick.

Fancy sugar skull at Selena's

Road Trip

It rained all the way to Toronto, but that's better than snow!
Mandatory Swedish meatballs for lunch. 
Fun duvet covers.
These lamps always remind me of wads of kleenex.
I loaded the car and went back into the store for some cookies, and crackers. 
It was a good day trip.
