The weather is becoming an issue

Even in here in our snow globe in the woods.

The bad part
Yesterday, one of our cats horked all over all my pants.

The good part
But then I got to go paint with my Tuesday painters group AND (shameless plug here) submit two big watercolors for the Cazenovia, NY Winterfest.

Today

The bad part
I just strolled into my studio to find water coming through the ceiling onto a pile of watercolor paintings.

The good part.
It’s fixed and this one is there at the Cazenovia Public Library!
Reception Thursday 4-6

Ink splotches with coffee

This my best effort today, fooling around with my beloved fountain pens and ink on some plate finish paper. I like this design so it may become a grownup painting. This sketch is just 4″ by 4″ or so.

Life is better than it has been. PTSD in a loved one is a constant balancing act.

The end for today

Saturday blue, but I had a b/w assignment

An old friend has challenged me to a week of black and white.
Easy.
Black, night.
White, snow

So I painted with a wonderful Pilot refillable brush pen and coffee because I had coffee.

Then I removed the color.

Tomorrow is the last time, promise

Tomorrow is the second and last chance for you to see the Cazenovia Art Trail! I am having a real nice time with some artists I know and meeting some new ones. I am hurting a little less so am psyched for tomorrow.

One more peek

A little digital painting like one I did paint in watercolor. Only available online at a site not yet determined to use.

Good night, all.
