lanterns



The lanterns really look beautiful with the Edison bulbs! Thank you honey! He brought me these violets for Valentines Day. The curtains are recycled silk saris from Mexicali Blues.
 





 A couple more birds.

Lanterns

Ordered these great lanterns for the boho bedroom. I was going to put those cabochons on them but not sure now. The candles are not bright enough to reflect the great pattern so I think we may wire them for an old fashioned light bulb. Nice to be married to an electrician that can do pretty much anything I ask him to. Jack of all trades to put it mildly. Seriously. He even took this picture for me so I wouldn't have to go out in the cold.

I've neglected the blog and my bird practice. As you can see I messed the bottom one up so bad I had to gesso. Sigh. I'm just about to give up on watercolor because I am so bad. It is sucking all the fun outta art.

Watercolor birds





 I am enjoying painting my birds! I have a memory of being in 2nd grade and turning in a project of birds I had drawn. I asked my Mom but she didn't have it. So I'm recreating my childhood. Ha. For as long as I can remember I always wanted to be an artist. I get a little carried away with their beaks but that is my privilege as an artist.

water color mixing






 Still mixing but decided to keep the samples, I've made my own "dots". I have a few more reds to do but it is so tedious. I've been playing scrabble on line and mixing watercolor for days. This is teaching me a lot but who likes school? Not I. I have found a great partner in scrabble but he wins a little too often.
