Lost internet and house phone today for over an hour... got a little twitchy today because of it LOL.  I did come to a decision about this journal, I do not like it so Friday will be my last post in this one.  In the 8 years I've been keeping these sketchbooks I've never abandoned one before it was completely full, so this was not an easy decision for me, but I think it's the right thing to do.  Life is too short to spend time in a journal you don't like.  Final homework for #StrathmoreWorkshop1  I've enjoyed the lettering class, I need lots more practice, but now I know what I need to practice on.  Had a good lesson with my flute teacher, chatted a bit with her Mother, who is here from New York for a visit. We shared a few grand kid stories.

Sir Quintin Blake, such a talent, I got lost in his website today, so a little clown after Quintin Blake.

I'm taking a free Strathmore class on brush lettering and watercolor, this week's assignment, flowers.  Similar brush techniques to Chinese Brush painting... some turned out better than others.

Where'd Spring go?  Coldest day this year was today, I HATE being cold. Used part of what I learn in Stratmore lettering class with Jess Park to letter this page.  I'm still learning, but please with my progress with brush lettering.

Wisteria is blooming and yet chilly weather is back for this weekend anyway.  This has been a wonderful warm winter, which means we're going to have a very buggy Summer.

#OneWeek100People2017 Well I finished and technically I did 100 people drawings in 5 days.  Lesson learned here, well after day 3 I was bored with this exercise/challenge.  You might have noticed I went rogue and did cartoons and stick figures the last 2 days.  I seriously doubt I'll ever do something like this again, doing the same thing over and over again...is not my cup of tea at all.... Fini... I'm DONE!!!

Well that smudgy look on this page, is a pre-painting of pink, that my scanner didn't pick up at all.  Fun practicing people.  Dixie our black lab has gone walk about, she left the fenced back yard somehow tonight, I've driven the neighborhood looking for her, with no luck.  She showed up in our front yard 9 years ago, maybe she finally decided she didn't like it here.
