Revisiting another hobby


There are a few "staple" art things I do like sewing, quilting, photography and painting.  For example, I may not have turned my sewing machine in in over a year but it's like an old friend... when you get back together you pick up right where you left off.  I have this relationship with watercolors too.  I guess that's why I consider myself a Jill-of-all-trades but master of none.

In the right hand column where I have listed What I Blog About you can find all of my entries for watercolors.  I was going to post some pictures then I realized that I already had in previous posts.

I started a new painting over Thanksgiving while we were at my mother-in-law's house (in Illinois) but never finished it because by the time we got home I was onto something else.  A few weeks ago I decided to finish this painting so I pulled it out and began working on the details.

His name is Oscar the Red Panda and he lives at the Virginia Zoo here in Norfolk, VA.  I love going to this zoo because of him and if my kids aren't with me I watch him for hours.  I am fascinated by this little guy!  And as you can imagine I've taken tons of pictures of him.  He is my inspiration for my latest watercolor. It measures 11" X 14"
