Ok I am aware that these colours are mighty intense for a dried old crab shell (and don't you love the barnacles) but honestly I love the over-the-top combinations of puddling, liquid fun. Seems as though I'm getting and looking older but acting may well be another department altogether. Let us hope so.
Well wish me fun and sun and I'll check in with add-ons in a week or so. And for all us Canadians, hope your thanksgiving was wonderful. Cheers, Sue
The park sketches were done quickly and with great enjoyment during a delightful concert in our amazing Filberg Park.
Breakfast with my empty coffee cup was a really quick sketch so that my hot cereal would at least be warm. LOL

I've been long gone. That thread of song just went through my head posting these old sketches. Pensive here is a valiant attempt at a rather forlorn DD gazing through a window screen as we were leaving her house.
This poor w/c sketch is included for it's meaning in the return to taking time for relaxing pursuits.
Here we have a journal entry from early in the summer before the MOB got too caught up in the wedding rush.

I'm drawn to your autumn colors that you consider your "poor watercolor." I don't think it's poor at all! Really lovely, wonderful colors and very free and loose.
I'm a recovering MOB (been 1 1/2 years) and now I help others and LOVE it!

The orange bushes against the bright blue background are very nice, very fall. Using complementary colors really does pay off.

YESSS, yes, yes....... I do love barnicals. On our beach there are piles and piles of broken barnicals on the shore. They make a beach so pretty and white. They will grow anywhere won't they? I've never thought of painting them. You've done an awesome job on them. Also love the pensive daughter. Great work.
Thanks for stopping my blog and the great comments.

Oh, Sue, please keep posting your work. It's lovely and lively and loose. An inspiration. I especially liked the journal page about forgetting to pack a book, and the wonderful trees/shrubs across the top of the page.
