This my mom. MY MOM!! Wow. Mom - I don't remember you being this cool when I was young. Sorry. But, you're cool now, and really - isn't that what matters?

For the month of November and the NaBloPoMo, this blog is going to look a little different - I'm just letting you know in advance.
Expect lots of photographs and text - not so many sketches and paintings. November is a time for gathering in all the things that have made the year special and celebrating them. It is a month to be thankful and breathe before the rush to Christmas and the New Year begins. I always get a little philosophical this time of year and start pondering on the way life has gone and what could I do to change what I didn't like and improve what I did.
I also start trying to figure out how to make a chore schedule for my kids that works, but that's a topic for another day...
So, I hope all 20 or so of you that drop by here on a regular basis will stick with me on this daily blog extravaganza. I hate to take this little side trip alone.

No prizes this time, but that's okay - it was a really nice show and I was glad to be among some fantastic paintings!

I really liked the contour drawing of the man I did yesterday, but I wanted to see what it would look like with a little color added. I DIDN'T want to change the drawing I had made, however. So, I scanned the original drawing and printed it out on a 4x6" watercolor postcard. Then, I added a little water to the lines to start the process, then a little watercolor, and voila..
