When You Need To Escape

A good place for this quote & image.
I started my first lesson in a new online art course today and I am in the company of all types of people on the FB group page. Many I am familiar with from the other three courses I took. All types of people = all types of personalities. 
 When you don't "fit in" people will let you know right away. I will know how I feel among them right away, too. But all is well...I'm minding my own business and am ignoring the ones who ignore me...just keeping to myself but posting when I am moved to post - Those I have felt comfortable commenting and reacting to, all is well and I'm in this group for 2 whole years! :) At least I have my blog where I can be alone because it's for my own use."This is my garden!"
I can't post course images but as I learn and get better at painting I will post some of my own art using what I have learned, but will be busy with the course paintings for a while. We'll see - anyway, as I come across things that apply here, I'll post. 
Till next time whenever the Spirit moves. :)

My First Watercolor Painting

I'm starting an online "Watercolor Journaling" course tomorrow! I haven't painted with watercolors since I was a little kid but I'm looking forward to this.  It's not messy and won't take as long to finish a painting. I did one painting this week to try out the ink pens and paints which consist of 4 different tins, including a shimmering tin of colors which is what I used here except for the yellow center. 
Here is my practice watercolor painting.
I have ordered 2 different journals for this course - I love journals for writing and this will be the first time I use them for painting. If I can scan them I'll post here. They are beautiful! I bought them both on etsy in 2 different shops. One from Athens and one from the UK. I really think I'm going to enjoy this course. Time will tell. :)

Divine Song

This is one of two paintings I commissioned from Deanna Daffodil's Happy Art. They are so beautiful and I love them both!

Original Art by Molly White

"Mercedes" & "Moonbeam" 
A painting I bought from a friend and artist,  
Molly White from Molly White Fine Art.
She included a lovely gift bar of lavender soap made from milk from her goat, "Mercedes!" :) 
The beautiful roses note card was also painted by Molly - she is a very talented artist and works in different mediums.
I went on an art buying spree a few weeks ago! That's what I've been posting here lately. Two others should arrive sometime this month and will add them next time. 
Thank you, again, Molly, for your friendship and beautiful art!
