Sketches from my walk

This morning I woke up and was out early, just Chloe and I making our way to the coffee shop when I saw this feather. I think it's from a Red Tailed Hawk. One of the things I enjoy the most about walking and running is that I get to enjoy the things I would never see if I was driving.What oddities do you find on your walks?

Painted Rose

This is not watercolor, but Seta Color. I painted it in a class I took at Sisters, Oregon Quilt Show last week. We painted from a photograph.  Thought my friends might want to see it, even though it is not watercolor.  Will eventually put it in a quilt. Sorry I miss class again next week - but I keep practicing.

Garden stir fry

Enjoying the summer veggies coming out of the garden, not only fruits but veggies too!

My fruit for this week is Strawberries, my favorite all summer.  Traveling, there are many berry stands to get fresh in season berries.  This afternoon, I sat outside my camper and played with these berries.  I want to practice, but wish I could get simpler drawings - I feel I get too complicated in my shape and too much paint on it. I did like the leaf stamping so much, and the circle idea - I used this on the berries.  Ate them afterward, ummmm good!
