hello cute peeps.
i am here piddling. the day is a soft gray. trees are shimmering blues & greens in the garden. moss is growing everywhere. the colors are popping in the gray light. we are gradually drying out from the wild river of rain that plowed into los angeles on friday. everything around these parts is looking good – no sink holes, mud slides, or fallen trees.
i took these book pictures with the specific intention to paint them with watercolors. which…
i’m going to do as soon as i finish clacking out this post.
chuy, my cat sitter, cleaning woman, friend, and all around dear person, decided to corral my animal menagerie onto a doily. i laughed hard & loud when i saw them after she’d left.
i’m going to say my remote control candles are one of the best things i bought in 2016. i can’t live without them. they make regular living room feel like storybook living room. in case you needed to know that.
here’s the watercolor i painted into my sketchbook of barbara’s house (showing moss cottage in the background). i’m going to do it again. maybe will sketch with a pencil first this time. or not. we’ll see!
wyatt recovered really well from his early january surgery! he goes back in a few weeks to have a bit of reconstructive surgery so that his left eye isn’t pulled up so high. the whole process was a 2-part surgery.
he says hello.
hope you’re enjoying this sunday on your sailboat or looking for old paper at a flea market in the south of france or scooting down country lanes on your vespa. making bread. picking grapes. or whatever it is you do on sundays.
i’ll just be here making watercolor experiements and drinking tea.
