Nearing the finish line on this one…

I still don’t know what the name of this tree is!  But I may be able to find out tonight at the library if I can get my hands on a book that allows me to identify a tree by its bark.  It’s a little tricky with no leaves…

I volunteered to help backstage with my daughter’s musical recently and they had a singing instructor work with the young thespians before the show to warm up their voices, singing silly things like the alphabet in different keys.  What do artists do to warm up?  It occurs to me that drawing from life for 15 minutes would not be a bad warm-up.  In figure drawing we used to do 60 second poses for the first 10 minutes as a warm-up, gradually lengthening the pose.

What do you do to warm up for your artistic practice?
