Have I ever mentioned how much I love magnolias? I have been painting quite a few lately - this one I painted on Monday and Tuesday of this week - I am trying to finish at least one painting a week. I also did some sketching for the Sketchbook challenge and the Strathmore Visual Journal class - hope to post those tomorrow. I also did a canvas/paint/paper project for Gecko Galz - see sneak peek below - but can't show it until February as it will be used for a technique tutorial on their website.
It's been a good week also in the financial area - no spending except necessities, and I got some super movies and books at the library - Eclipse; Eat,Pray.Love; The Girl who played with Fire - woot woot!!!
I stopped by Books a Million to look at magazines and also to jot down names of new books to look for - I saw their "Book Club" display at the front of the store and wrote down the titles - I picked up The Maze Runner by James Dashner at the library - it's very good - not superb like the Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins but good - somewhat similar in its view of the world. Check it out!
I put reserves in for some of the other books that looked interesting.
Hope you are having a good week and thanks for reading.
I will be back soon with some peeks into my sketchbook and also to show you the painting that will be in a show this next weekend at the Vero Beach Museum of Art.
