First one

 I am happy to say I was able to get my first Covid vaccine:) Walgreens opened appointments on Wednesday. We hopped on line and persevered and got appointments only a mile from my daughter's house! The process at the store was relatively quick and so far the only reaction is a sore arm. We already have appointments for the second shot in a month. 


I did not have a lot of time for painting this week. I was very excited with this floral on a black Strathmore Mixed media paper. I let the paints pool and was happy with the results. 


Did these for a transportation challenge. My VW is a bit squarish and the tires look flat:) 


This little truck/bus could be for my grandson. He loves all types of vehicles. 


Adding these to PaintpartyFriday. There is so much inspiration from the artists who post there!

Have a safe and healthy week!

The weekend

 I kept thinking today was Sunday but, no, it is only Saturday:) 


We enjoyed a morning at the Phoenix herpetological Society. They are the largest rescue facility for reptiles in the USA. I am not a reptile lover but my 3 1/2 year old granddaughter is. She got to hold and/or pet a tortoise, bearded dragon, snake, gecko and more. I did actually touch a few of them:):)







During the week, I was able to complete a birthday card for my sister. 



I had an idea and played with lots of water and dropping color in. I scratched the paper with the end of the brush.

This is for a transportation challenge. My version of Cinderella's carriage, 

Adding this to Paintpartyfriday - although a bit late:) 

Hoping you are all safe and healthy!


Another week in the books
