Watercolor and Ink
Busy times -- but so fun! Yesterday I emptied the closet where we stashed all the gifts accumulated for the holidays ... it took several trips up and down the stairs (and yes, I'm counting that as exercise!! LOL) to bring them to the living room for wrapping. Mom and I watched movies while we cut, taped, labeled and placed them in groups for each grandchild. Though not as gift-mountainous as last year, there's a significant amount of 'economic stimulus" we added to!
I sketched this poinsettia from the depths of the sofa -- there's something very 'challenging' about having inadequate light and the firmlessness of a lab that makes wonkiness a sureity! Still, climbing stairs is pretty difficult for mom and with my artspace upstairs and mom downstairs, my art table time will be limited for a while.
As I'm typing, I glance out the window to see the sky a deep purple/pink that has me jaw-dropped! There's still fog wisping around the trees .. .mercy, what an incredible sunrise!
Today, it's cooking and a bit of shopping. C is home for two weeks as his business has closed for the holidays as well. Mike came by yesterday for a quick visit, and we talked to my daughter ... oh how I relish these family times!
I keep trying to capture some photos of the kittens-cats -- but mercy, I can't get them to stay still long enough!!
I haven't seen the news yet, so I'm hoping the storms predicted for the northwest and northeast didn't pack as bad a blow as first thought.
Time to get things on the stove! Enjoy the day!
