Sandy (my watercolor teacher) is having the class do portraits each week in November. The first one had to be from Sandy's photo (taken in Italy) and working as Sandy worked. She would paint a while, then stop, and we'd go TRY to do the same thing :) Some of us had done portraits before so there wasn't the tension that others had - a lot of tension!! Whew!
Now, this is just the 2-hour start and I have plenty to do to finish. And I have to finish this one. Can't just let it sit around undone for days or weeks.
I had to leave class early because Jerry and I took my sister and BIL out to celebrate (very late) his birthday. We had a good lunch at Applebee's (his favorite) and he got a musical card and the new John Lennon bio that just came out. I think it was a good day for him - plus we had all voted and were excited about the outcome.
And now we know the outcome and I'm hopeful that my country is finally on the road to a stronger, more compassionate and intelligent direction. May blessings pour down upon us all...
