work in progress
10 x 14 watercolor
My good friend Catie, who has a running blog which is fantastic and you can find it here, told me that she likes seeing my works in progress. So here is what I'm working on now. I took this picture a few years ago at a stallion auction, and this horse was gorgeous!! He was solid muscle and he moved with confidence, like he knew he was really something. The only thing I wish had been different was the light, it was an overcast day, and I was hoping for full sun. But, oh well. I love the line of his neck it seems so graceful to me. And his kind expression.
All right here's the question people!! I know you're so excited right? (he, he) I think the power of blogging is in making connections with people you wouldn't ordinarily get to meet. So this week's question is simple, but fun. Tell me something about yourself, any fun fact you want. It can be as simple as your favorite food, or your favorite band (Muse? Yes!! 30 Seconds to Mars? Yes!! I knew we were going to be great friends!! *wink*). Or anything else you feel like sharing. Now don't be shy, you can even tell us something embarrasing if you want. Here, I'll go first.
I am kind of a major dork in the fact that something I love to do is go to the library. I am always on the hunt for my new favorite book. And I always take my kids, there is this one library really close to us that has awesomely fun toys. So they really like to go. Usually. A few months ago I took my two boys, the oldest was in school, and we were looking around, when my baby who had just started saying words, did not want me to hold him. AT ALL. Now the word he really liked to say right now is 'ow' or 'owie'. So, when I did not put him down to wreck havoc on the poor library he started screaming 'OW!!!' very, very loud. I don't think my face could have gotten any redder. So many people were looking at me as I wrestled this screaming infant, and all I could think to do was just hold on to him and make a quick exit! I kept saying "It's just his favorite word, I'm not hurting him honest!" I thought I was going to get turned in for child abuse! Not surprisingly we quit going to the library as much after that. :):)
Okay, your turn :)
