Tomorrow is the Watercolor Workshop


I am all packed up and ready for the workshop. I have to carry a large foam core board so can't pull my trolley with supplies. I had to load those into a bag. Since I will be walking with a cane, I need the other hand free to maneuver the board.



Today had good news at the doctors. I had two appts. The surgeon in the morning and the infectious medicine doctor in the afternoon. I don't have to see the surgeon for 3 months. The other I don't have to see again unless something comes up. He said my blood test showed my sedimentary level is still a little high (30) but it has come down (was 50 about a month ago). 50 was with infection. Any way I have to watch for fever, pain, or redness that isn't the flu or a cold. He said I am not out of the woods yet but it looks better.



Here is the first Old Master ATC I did for the exchange project. The original is Study of the Head of a Blonde Woman by William Bouguereau. Mine went to Anney in Germany, and she has received it. I sent a small copy of the original and a short artist's biography with my ATC. Anney said that was really nice to get the extras. I figure while I am learning about them, each person I send to could learn a little too. You can see the original here: http://www.oceansbridge.com/oil-paintings/product.php/65841/1009/

That is some excellent work. What medium is that? Looks like chalk.
