The next painting is the one I did of the key lime tree in our yard. Right now I am enjoying painting still lifes of flowers, fruits, etc. I am not ready yet to do animals. Next week in my watercolor class we are going to try Chinese painting techniques with ink and watercolor. I may practice some flowers this week to take and do in the Chinese style.
I am trying to find a flower loom in the thrift stores (I checked ebay and since Cathy of California demonstrated straw flowers on Martha, the price on vintage Ronco flower looms has gone up. I had actually gotten interested in the flowers before I knew about the Martha show (I don't watch it but over the weekend I watched the flower segment on the Martha website) but I guess I will just have to keep looking or wait till the popularity dies down. I did find some vintage raffia so once I find a loom, I'm ready.
I baked bread this morning using half the recipe to make cinnamon rolls. Yum!!! I read on Soulemama that the best way to store bread is in a cloth bag, and that vintage linen dish towels work perfectly so I looked through my linen closet and found the perfect towel. Now to sew it into a bag and add a drawstring.
Have a great week!
