Rays played with a new attitude tonight, and managed a 1 to 0 win, they are headed to New York to finish out the series there. I have a cute bracelet full of little stylized crabs like this one. Love these little guys, good to eat too.
Tried out Koosje's negative spaces on my hand... worked great until I got to my little finger. I only tonight got to watch all the videos from this week's lessons at Sketchbook Skool. Next week should be better, and everyday in May starts Sunday.
Our local Harley dealership Low Country Harley Davidson had the bike Ron test rode in Anderson, and tonight he traded in his Ultra for the Softail Slim S with a 110 engine, ABS brakes, security system and cruise control.
LOH meeting tonight was lots of fun at the Steel City Pizza place off Dorchester Road. Ron had the Calzone and said it was fabulous, I had the pizza, and fried Mozzarella.. both very good. Anna our server was attentive and pleasant. We'll be back there I'm sure of it. Tomorrow we go to Anderson SC for the SC State Hog rally, may be a few days before I'm able to post again.
I used D'Atramentis document black ink in a Lamy Safari Fountain pen to draw a quick study of the head of a Snowy Egret in the pond at the end of Faber Place tonight on our way to dinner. Caran D'Ache colored pencils to add the color. I like the effects some people get with colored pencils, not sure exactly how they do that, I just know it is way more time consuming than watercolor, so my lazy nature prefers watercolor.
Couldn't have worked out better if we'd tried, refund from the state, covers what we owe the Feds with $200 or so left over to spend anyway we want. Ron says he'll do them next year.... I may take him up on that as I always procrastinate until the last day. I hate doing the taxes, I'd rather scoop dog poop... just saying.
When I did yesterday's page I had no idea that I'd have a flower the very next day. All three rose bushes have been covered in buds for well over a week. Came home this evening after a trip to Atlanta Georgia today, and the first thing I noticed was a yellow rose... so Yellow bloomed first, Red and peach cannot be far behind.
