Day 1 of subbing...





So, today was my first day to sub, so I didn't have my time in the studio, and because I have to get used to it, I am too tired to paint today. BUT, I did wake to a beautiful sunrise I wanted to share, and I DID have time to do a couple of watercolor sketches. The sunflower is the one from Dana Marie's blog "Inspiration All Around Us". I am laughing right now as I got up EARLY to print off the pic so I would have it at school...I realize that I elongated it in my rush to get out the door, so it is a bit L O N G in the tooth...but at least it IS. I got this little watercolor kit and a little handmade sketchbook to work on things while at schools, so this was page one. (The quality of the paints isn't that good, but when those little pans are empty I will put a higher quality of paint in them.)I think I got the sketchbooks at a show in Boulder this summer. The second little sketch is the foothills outside my classroom window. SO pretty. The colors were so light...I couldn't get much contrast, so I decided to ink some of it to show some detail. It was fun to at least be able to play in some kind of paint! So, now I'm off to a NAP...not used to this schedule...but I'll get there! Happy Painting!

These are lovely, and I admire your determination to create in adverse circumstances. Anyone who substitute teaches is a hero in my book!

Love the sunflower, esp., long in the tooth or not!

Some may feel squeamish about eating it, but rabbit has a fan base that grows as cooks discover how easy they are to raise — and how good the meat tastes.
