So Cold!

Today, it is so cold that I am spending all my time keeping the fire fed and devising ways to keep warm.  LOL!  The weather has been changeable, to say the least.  While waiting for the photo for painting number seven, I decided to try watercolors, again.  Over the years, I have tried watercolors many times and can’t seem to make it work for me.  I started a watercolor course and tried these pears:

I know they are not great, but I was surprised that they turned out as well as they did.  So, I got bold and tried a landscape.  Well, it didn’t work out…

It is rather funny how difficult watercolors are for me.  Well, I got the photo and I have started painting number seven.  It is a relief to be back using acrylics.  LOL!

I am still slogging through Washington, A Life.  He as been president for a few years, now.  He is old and tired and totally devoid of teeth, but he is still doing his duty.

Bust of George Washington by Jean-Antoine Houdon from a life mask made in 1785, when Washington was 53 years old.

More than all, and above all, Washington was master of himself.

— Charles Francis Adams

  1. Good thing we ordered fans for the wood stove. A little late, but it will have to do. The watercolors look good. You need to have your abilities stretched sometimes.
