Every time that I dip my brush into the water and the paint, it's like dipping my toes into the water of a stream. Will it be cold or hot, will it excite me, delight me, or scare me? Every time is like the first time - what joy and what terror!
The sketchbook challenge today was to do graffiti on a boxcar - I started thinking of leaves and then it went to kudzu overwhelming the boxcar - don't you just love these prompts?!

My DH and I went up to Viera, FL today to do a little shopping at World Market (hurricane supplies like pates and cheeses in cans, and wines), Kohl"s (I got 4 incredible scarves for $4 each!!!!), and Hobby Lobby (a wonderful sketchbook of handmade paper); lunch at Mimi's (and free muffins); and some brews at World of Beer (I had a delicious Lost Coast Apricot Wheat - yum!).  It was a yucky rainy, cloudy, and windy day so this little trip worked out beautifully.  Tonight I will watch another episode of Midsomer Murders - I was introduced to this British TV series by a friend who likes mysteries as much as I do, and I discovered that our library has almost all of the series (like 60 episodes) so I am working my way through them - what a great summer treat! 

Hope your day was as good as mine and thanks for stopping by,
