If it’s Friday, this is where you’ll find me!
A few years ago I signed up for a watercolor class and fell in love with it.
It took a lot of practice and patience to improve my paintings.
For much of 2020 I didn’t paint a lot.
The pandemic and our vicious politics had me wanting to hide away.
Then we had elections last fall and the good guy won!
The grave danger of loosing our democracy is not over yet, but now there’s hope.
I haven’t had a chance to draw our new president, so here’s another one I admire.
I make him my second favorite president right after Jimmy Carter!
This tree reminds me of the one we lost during the ice storm earlier this year.
It gave me privacy and of course a view of greenery and birds year-round.
There still are some birds flying in circles looking for it sometimes.

My “desk” is really a super long, folding garage sale table
and all the space comes in handy when I work on my projects.
This is also where I write my posts and do FaceTime with my sister in Germany.
The Bokeh in the background were created with
a “magic eraser kitchen sponge”,
watercolors and acrylics.

So, if you’re ever walking by my place on a Friday morning,
look up and wave hello!
A special Thank You to the many artists on YouTube!
Their tutorials, tips and tricks have really helped me
step out of my comfort zone and just go for it!
As my watercolor instructor Sharla used to say:
“It’s just a piece of paper!”
