My first video on youtube shows how I do four watercolor feathers.
The video is under a minute long and is a time lapse to show the entire process.

#HOMwork Challenge

Each week, she sends out a prompt and you can chose to participate and post your work on instagram.
This week, the prompt was "Your assignment this week is to take the popular phrase "Spread love, not hate" and replace 'love' with your favorite thing to spread onto food (hummus, nutella, butter, vegemite, etc)."

I chose to use Cholula, the hot sauce that I enjoy. I drew a sketch of a spilled bottle and then the phrase inside the sauce.

Blessings

This week has been full of blessings.
Two of my nieces had birthdays this week. The kids are growing up so quickly.
Jon and I took a tennis lesson together for the first time in a while and had a great time. It was energizing.
I spent hours studying flamingos for my latest art series. Then, after some paintings were complete, I visited the Sunken Gardens with a friend, and took some pictures of my art with flamingos. It was a fun day.
I had two tennis matches this week, both with new partners. Both matches were fantastic and challenging. I was lucky to have good partners and two mornings of long, but fun tennis.
Jon and I went for a walk on the beach on Valentine's Day. For the first time, ever, we spent part of Valentine's Day with our feet in the sand.
We had dinner at our friends house and then got a lesson on casting for fly fishing. It was very interesting and a new hobby we'd like to study.
