This is a quick little watercolor sketch of two sprigs of ivy, painted while I'm waiting for the chili.

A friend gave me these two sprigs of ivy in an adorable little flower arranger. They started to take root, so I figured I had better get them out of the tiny holes in the arranger before the roots grew too large. I really have a thing for ivy, and for some reason I didn't have any for awhile (until these came along). Do you suppose the reason could be because I KILLED it? Or the cat ate it? Or . . .?

I actually have a pretty green thumb - well I think I have to give the credit to the house we live in. Plants just seem to like it here. We do too.

Having a bad day, so what could be better then going through all your work?! And so I am! I seen your little paint tin and wanted to share that I used sticky magnetic strips and put it on Yupo...and lo!...a pop-out palatte to mix paint on. Pop it out when it needs a wash and it "magnets" back in.
Have a good day! BJR

BJR - so sorry to hear you are having a bad day!

What a great idea to use Yupo to mix your paint. I am going to have to remember that. Thanks for the tip.

Hope you are feeling better VERY soon.
