The foxglove grew tall and fell over with the rain, so I didn’t mind cutting a few stems and bringing it indoors.  I do hope that the rest seeds itself profusely.  I know so little about watercolor, I thought I might spend some time this Summer exploring it a little more seriously.  You’ll have to trust me that the drawing below looks better in person, but I’m still working on it and will take a more careful photograph later.


Kids and watercolors

Home today, with one girl sick and the boy wanting to do something other than watch it rain.  So we got out the watercolors, for a start.  I promised my creativity coach I would get started on 15 minutes of drawing a day again, and today I met my quota.  Actually, I promised myself.  I’m getting ready to put up a Summer Drawing Show exhibit at the library, and for the first time in 5 years as curator I will be including a few of my own drawings.  I think it has been about 7-8 years since I have exhibit my work in public.  Too long.

My favorite parts of this watercolor are the Transformer and Hello Kitty t-shirts.  The kids enjoyed that as well.
