It would hang from the collar of kitty.
He hated the dangle and jangle!
She angled her brow and cooed and kissed.
He arched his back and spat and hissed!
With a twist of her wrist, the cat was dismissed.
Though tangled and mangled, she couldn't resist.

I never thought I'd become comfortable with watercolor. Oh, no, I'm still not! ... Yet... but I'm getting closer! Each new attempt is just a little less daunting!

| I like finally, finally, finally getting to the |
very end of an old tube of paint.
| I like how the watching how the daily garden |
harvest changes throughout summer.
|I like having chickens in the backyard. |
I think 12 is the right amount for us.
(Don't count too closely or ask if there
are 3-4 more not shown!!)
|I like this silly yellow cat.|
|I like this guy.|
|I like being a part of this great big family. |
We get together for four days at the end of each July.
|I like seeing my art find its new home.|
|I like this sign I saw when I was in Pilates.|
|I like the blooms on the hostas |
and all the bees and butterflies attracted to them.
|I like living in a place where wildlife wonders by.|
|I like watching seeing these chickens take a dust bath in a flower pot.|
|I like hearing this guy crow.|
(His name is Pete.)
|I like starting a new project... |
and having help choosing the fabric.

Red is Just Red
Raspberries, Razorbacks, Rudolph’s nose,
Barns on farms, and boxes with bows.
Chickens’ combs, a cardinal, some cherries,
Ketchup on fries, and small holly berries.
Tulips in vases, tomatoes on vines,
A King James version with Jesus’ lines
Amaryllis, Anthurium, Gala apples,
Stained-glass panes in old church chapels.
A Muppet named Elmo, a melon slice,
A maple in autumn, an on-sale price.
The quick zip flash of a hummingbird’s throat,
An A+ grade with the teacher’s nice note
Sunsets in summer, stockings in December
Ladybugs, lollipops, and the last burning ember
Vermillion, alizarin, venetian, and garnet
Crimson and ruby, rose and scarlet,
Maroon and burgundy, so nearly the same
Red is just red, no matter the name

I've done lessons in so many different directions outside my comfort zone... I don't even know where that zone ends any more!
The lessons from the first sessions in January, February are HERE.
The lessons from the second sessions in March, April, May are HERE.
And now... the third session June, July, August! I learned something with every single lesson.
