In full color

The daffodils have dried.

I have begun to knit a scarf.
I am teaching myself.

If I have questions I can always consult my books
and my mentor.

For now I am becoming comfortable.
I love being able to take my knitting when I go visiting.

My water color pencils are nice.
I am learning about color today.

Spirit Drawing

I began today an art class.

I am following the chapters in Jude Siegel's book.

I read this book in February and was impressed.
I had picked it up at the library so I had to return it.
After debating on if I could/should learn to draw and do some watercoloring I decided
to order the book and have a class at the kitchen table and let this book be my teacher.

I went out to the gardens looking for a tulip to draw.
This one spoke to me.

I gathered my things and began my drawing.

I used colored pencils today.

I am going to the art supply store tomorrow for water color pencils.

I also have plans to stop at the yarn shop.

I am hoping to buy some wool yarn for my first knitting project!
