First 3 days of retirement, not getting as much done as I'd hoped, with doctor appointments and trips to the Naval hospital eating up half my day today.  Sleeping late, well as late as the dogs will allow has been nice, and  some time to catch up on my stack of books I'm reading and getting some work done on a sweater I'm knitting between, loads of laundry... well I guess I'll settle into a routine soon enough.

Windy and cold today, I know 65 isn't cold to folks up Nawth... but trust me, if it is too cold for flip flops... it's too darn cold.

Oct 23-24 Art

Used Gouache to paint the seagull over the blue background... an interesting exercise as I rarely use gouache.

Love pecans, and finished off a can of roasted pecans tonight... so drew the last 3 before I ate them.

Been a busy week, managed to draw some in my journal, but neglected posting to my blog.  Turning over a new leaf tomorrow... maybe.

Oct 15-16 Art

Falling behind on posting my pages every day... I don't suppose it really matters though.  Work is winding down, as I'm retiring on Oct 31, what will I do with myself all day?  I've worked since I was 14 years old, so this will be a big change for me.

Beast was rumbling around in my stomach today... starved it for as long as I could.  Fed it saltine crackers which seemed to settle it down some.

How about some watercolor based monsters?  Draw Tip Tuesday suggested this, so I gave it a try.... Blew with a straw, but still didn't get the effects like Stefan.
