Miss Blue takes a "small journey"

my life has been filled with so much inspiration lately
(attending the Florida Watercolor Society convention last week
after having taken the incredible watercolor portrait class from Stephie Butler
in August)
I can hardly  take it all in
I am trying to take it one painting at a time
or as jude hill would say
one "small journey" at a time
(have I ever mentioned how much I enjoy her blog?)
above Hana is having a blue day
lots to do today
I apologize for not blogging regularly but I find the more I do 
(draw, paint, quilt, cook)
the less time I have for blogging
c'est la vie

Let the choir sing

as I was painting this one
I started seeing the glads as a choir
singing praises
so I titled it
"Let the choir sing"

Back from class with Stephie Butler

attended a watercolor workshop with Stephie Butler
