Favorite presents

 












Violette challenged us all to draw our favorite present. So here is a fun sketch with some of my favorite gifts included. I used the new watercolor pencils to color the items. It was a fun little exercize.

I just took down the Christmas Tree. It was so dry that it was a real fire hazard, plus I felt like getting back to normal so I took everything down. Now to get it all put away and all those pine needles vacuumed.















I have been looking for a new purse and the other day I found this purse at Walmart marked down to $5.00, what a deal. I think I might try and paint it. Then I thought oh I like the purse what if I ruin it, but then it was only 5 bucks so no big loss but then I realized I have an old purse I can practice on first. So that is a project planned for the new year, One of many I hope. I want to start trying some of the new techniques I have been reading about all year. I have been collecting supplies so now I need to find the magazines in question and starting playing. Posted by Picasa
