March Mango Madness!!!

I've been looking forward to this all week!! The month of ORANGE!! My first orange drawing is of the mango colored leather chairs that DH and I drove down to Birmingham to pick up last weekend. We saw them on an anniversary trip in January, just couldn't quit thinking about them, and finally decided to just do it - how many times in your life are you given the opportunity to own such magnificent chairs??

Anyhow - they are currently languishing in the bedroom of this little apartment we are living in while our house is being built. As a matter of fact, we are all languishing in it - 30 more days - 30 more days...just a little mantra to keep me from losing it entirely...

They are positively gorgeous and just glow (and not in a scary fluorescent kind of way). I'm so happy to have found them. I have been constantly frustrated shopping for furniture in Knoxville. Everything is either curved, carved, oversized or flowered - which is fine if you like that sort of thing...but I don't.

Here's the real thing, too - taken while still in residence down at Peck & Hill's in Birmingham.

Oh - I have a question for all you watercolorists out there - do my watercolors dry "chalky" because they are a cheap set I bought on impulse one day, or do all WC dry like that?
