Watering the Flowers

Anyone else on a merry-go-round besides me? Phew. What a week! Besides an influx of unexpected company, the blueberries are beckoning. So far I've frozen about 15 quarts - in the next two or three weeks there will be many more quarts put into the freezer. When picking I try to think of luscious blueberry pies and sweet crunchy blueberry crisps... this keeps me going while I'm swatting insects, getting scratched by woody branches and trying to keep cool in July's steamy temps!

On the art front, I purchased a few more colored pencils and have been experimenting with them. I started a portrait (Watering the Flowers) and... it's been interesting. I'm not sure exactly what type of "look" I'm after, so I'm trying to stay open minded and just see how things turn out. I'm working on watercolor paper and don't think I like it for CPs. I'd like to try a smooth Bristol and see what kind of effects I can get with CP.

This is a WIP (Work in Progress) so it's by no means a finished product.

Hi Lin, Arlene and Kay,

Thanks for the encouraging words... sure needed them on this project! It's been quite a challenge... the angle on the face and the mouth have given me a fit (which is why in this first pic there is no mouth... it went the way of the eraser!) LOL!!!
