River in March
5.5"X3.5" Mixed media in Moleskine
I haven't been posting much recently. I haven't been painting much either, but I still draw and sketch most days. I found some old watercolour sketches from the past couple of moths that I never posted, so I will try to put them up over the next few days.
I did this one in March and there was still very little sign of Spring at that time. We have had some massive storms, including one that brought down 800 trees belonging to the City of St Catharines alone, not counting those on private property. It was a city tree that came down on my house, puncturing the roof and breaking the porch as well as taking out 50 ft of fence and part of my shed! That, combined with my dryer belt breaking, my oven going on strike and my phone refusing to work properly for the past couple of weeks, has made my life complicated. Then there is work....
Anyway, I have lots of excuses for not painting, but it doesn't make me feel any better about it.
