A Busy Week

 It has been a busy week. We had new landscaping done at our house and they finally finished. I took a watercolor painting class. And, we are hosting two caddies who are in town for the LPGA event this week. It is always fun to visit with them and watch the ladies golf. 

I did have time to complete a scrapbook layout. My granddaughter loves taking classes even if they have to be via zoom. 

I used this sketch from StickitDown

The art show last weekend was very successful for our art group. I had a good show as well selling probably half of my cards. On Tuesday I participated in a watercolor class at a local gallery. The theme was vases and violets. 

Here is my inspiration and my finished piece. 

It is not yet finished but it is a good start. 

I am adding this to PaintpartyFriday. Please stop by there and visit all of the artists. So many talented works to look at!
