"One day at a time--this is enough. Do not look back and grieve over the past for it is gone; and do not be troubled about the future, for it has not yet come. Live in the present, and make it so beautiful it will be worth remembering."

This Was Fun!

Tonight I decided to try these watercolor 
flower paintings that I learned from
Martha    and the tutorial she so kindly shared 
on her Art Du Jour blog at
http://marthalever.blogspot.com/
She is one very talented woman that you must
go over and meet.
To paint these I used watercolor paper postcards
that I had on hand.
These would be wonderful to paint
onto note cards.  I am so excited!

My blending needs some work
on the pots but for doing
this in front of the t.v. and without my glasses,
I am pleased with the outcome.
Truly, her instructions are great and even if you
don't think you can paint,
you must try this.
You will be surprised what a good teacher
can help you do.


Thank you Martha
You Rock !!
