So I signed up for another class. Whimsical Landscape Painting with Mechelle Harrison. I did a sketch of Mt. Hood in photoshop and transfered it on to the canvas. Not particularly happy with it so will work on it some more tomorrow. Instead here is the Enchanted Bird done in the Whimsical Style for your viewing.
I thought I was taking a quick run to Fred Meyer for pots, exchange library books then back home for Art and Catnap.
The low pressure light went on. Les Schwab fixed it in about an hour and didn’t charge me. Three Cheers for Les Schwab. There was a screw in the front driver’s side tire. The rear drivers (which they repaired last year) was also low.
I know it is misguided but I’ve signed up for 3 online art workshops at the same time and I haven’t totally completed the one I started a couple of weeks ago. The good news is that two of them will come with DVD’s in the off chance I get really far behind. Here is a list of the classes. How could I choose just one?
Color Drop Flowers
