I painted in class on the 21st, at home on the 22nd, and on the 23rd I sketched some kids taking finals at school. Maybe I'll post the painting sometime.

I made a grid and did some sketches from a few photos we took in Italy. I want to do this again, but with better photos. Still, it was fun. Once I draw from a photo, I have a better idea of whether a painting could come of the photo--or not!!

Challenge 109--draw a clock. This is my cow clock that some students gave me. I love cows.
Challenge 113--draw a fence. I see this fence when I look out my bedroom window. It is the line between the farm and the neighborhood. The "farm" only keeps a few horses and several peacocks. I think the goats are gone. They used to come through the fence and nibble the grass in yards. And the peacocks sometimes walk through the yards and fly up to our roofs. It is a funny thing to see.
These challenges were done in April and just now posted. I'm not good about posting...
I didn't paint or draw on the 6th, but I did attend the opening reception of the St. Louis Watercolor Society's spring juried show, and 2 of my pictures were accepted. Yay!!
On May 7 I painted in class. Not posted.
May 8--I missed. And that's ok.
On May 9 I finished a grid I started on May 3. It is glimpses of my art space.
Challenge 116 was to draw something green. This plumeria plant is one of those sticks tourists can buy and bring home and grow. Ours has yet to bloom, and I thought it was dead until a tiny new leaf emerged, so maybe there is hope for this plant.
I've been participating in the Every Day in May group, http://www.frenchtoastgirl.com/weblog/blogger.shtml, sponsored by this blogger, so I've been drawing or painting or doing something artistic every day--well, almost--this month. On May 1 I sketched A. It was a rushed week, too, b/c I was playing in the pit orchestra for a school musical, and the first week in May was filled with dress rehearsals and 3 performances.
