One challenge during a conference, especially those that involve lots of note taking, is finding a moment to move from writing script to drawing or sketching ... and thus, in the dark, between notes, this vase was about all I could manage. I sketched with my ballpoint pen and was surprised when I added a bit of watercolor later that evening that it didn't run.
I'm dashing back to the conference for the trade show and to meet my students for another class. We're expecting snow in the afternoon so we'll be cramming in as much as we can in a few short hours.
And whether it's snow or rain, we're all glad for whatever water can be added to our parched lakes and soils!
