Happy Anniversary Jennie and Brandon and First Sketch for 451

It is Jennie's and Brandon's one year anniversary today!  Woohoo!  Congratulations!  We love having Brandon in our family.

You can read about last years fun here:

Only two more days before Hunt 451  http://www.wetcanvas.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1405511  is over.  Where have I been?  What have I been doing?  The answers are nowhere and nothing.

I'm still having difficulty in painting and working on my art.  Maybe the answer is to just play with my art.  Read what John P. Weiss has to say on FASO.  He is an interesting painter.  Check him out as well.  He was a policeman. (I think that is like a Marine: once a policeman, always a policeman.)  Links in this post.


Number 1, brilliant color - of course, the geranium.  I sketched on my iPad with Brushes and my fingers.

Nice digi of the flower. I think sometimes when we stop painting it is just so very hard to get into the groove again. You get out of the habit and just can't get back. Hope it passes soon.

Happy anniversary to Jennie and Brandon. Someone should throw a party.

Good link on painting! I especially like the calling for backup.

Jo Castillo said...

Joan, thank you. You definitely know the feeling. I need to start doing it and just have fun. Sigh.....

Bag Blog, they took some time off but we haven't seen them yet. :) See how it goes. I guess you are my backup! Hope to see you soon.

Love the geranium!
