Counting down

I am counting down the days now. 6 left till surgery. And only 6 more to finish my tax classes. No stress, right? I have been so stressed lately plus I had trouble getting onto blogger.
I had thought I wouldn't go to anymore plein air outings until after my surgery, but today the outing was at a private garden. The same one as my first time out with the group.
Since I had not done any art in about a week (dratted tax classes), I went for some relaxing time. It was fun but after that and a couple errands after and a doctor appt, I was exhausted. Had to take a nap. But as usual, when the dogs thought it time to get up and eat, they kept bugging me until I got up. They eat once a day around 5-6 pm, and you had better not be late with their food. Penny especially is persistent and knows when its 5pm on the dot.
Here are the two items I did at the art outing today. We had 9 people there, lunch after art, and a critique/showing after that. The hostess is part of the group and is fantastic. She has a beautiful home that has one of the best studios I have seen. A full wall of windows looking out to the yard, several work spaces, flat files, and even a separate walk-in closet for storage with shelves. An artist's dream.

Both art pieces are very good.

Jeanne, these are both great. You have a touch with ink and watercolor. :) Glad you had a good art day.
