Bookbinding/Journal Workshop DemonstrationThis birdhouse is in the garden of my bookbinding workshop partner, Cathy. Someday I'll go through my sketchbooks to see how many times I have painted it over the years. It makes a good subject for the journal painting part of our workshop. It is a good example of how contour drawing (continuous line) can simplify a complicated subject, and how to paint colorful neutrals.
We had a fantastic group in our Monday-Tuesday workshop, and another group begins today.
We've been having so much fun with the grandkids! Things have been relatively calm - no more crashing through window panes. Yesterday we took a tour through the new candy factory! The kids are at the other grandparents for a few days. I think I'll be okay with the quiet - I have to get ready for three new classes starting next week, and begin and finish a small painting. All fun stuff, and if it weren't for deadlines, I'd probably never do a thing. Well, maybe I would.
