Hi there! I haven't been posting very regularly of late, but life has been pretty - boring. Even though it is boring, I sometimes don't know where the time goes.
I have been attempting some painting. I started out with colored pencils, just to test my hand at drawing, then I moved on to watercolor pencils. I was using them too much like regular pencils and laying down too much color. But I've been practicing and I think I have found the technique. I'm not saying I'm any good at it, but at least I know what to do now. I think. I bought the pencils thinking they might be easier than regular watercolor paints, because I have never been able to do any good at all in that department, but I feel a bit more confident and think I am ready to break out the tubes! We shall see.
If you're wondering about that first picture...
One cool thing I have found is this: If you cut the core of a bunch of leaf lettuce and put it in a container with just enough water to reach the bottom, it will grow! And quickly! I happened to have some leaf lettuce so I thought I'd give it a try. (the container is small - an empty OUI Yogurt) I think it won't be long until I can have a leaf or two on a sandwich.
Have a good week and stay healthy!
