Pretty Colors on a Rainy Day

One more day and I will have completed my first full week at Wright Career College. I work Tuesday through Thursday. I think this will be a good thing and I see more opportunities possible coming in January so keep your fingers crossed. I would rather work full time at one job rather than part time at two jobs.

A couple of days ago I broke out the water colors and got to painting.

The first page started out as a sketch in my little book and I recreated it in my bigger book. It needs something, but it will be a good base for something else.

The last page is based off a photo that one of my friends shared on FB. The little bug caught my eye but even more eye catching was the dark orange of the pumpkin. I tried to capture that color on my page. I am really happy with this.

Tomorrow and Friday I will begin the shift from one apartment/house to another. They are basically the same apartment but the new one will have more windows, the laundry room downstairs instead of up, one less bathroom :-( but one more bedroom which is the most important thing. AND James will get to stay at his school.

I will get come back online on Saturday maybe when everything gets hooked back up.

The first week at any new job is always the hardest so I am glad that is over.
Glad you are still sketching and painting Annemarie.
Will you have the same landline number at your new apartment because I was going to ring you for your birthday?

Beautiful artwork. Had no idea this was out here. But now that I know...

Oh, and the banana bread story? Delightful. That's what happens, I think, when you stop for a moment in order to go forward more elegantly. Instead we hurry up to "fix things".

Congrats--on the job, the bread, and especially for stopping.
