In the calm before the storm


A tornado watch is in effect where I live. So earlier today I went outside and cut some blooms to place in vases. This way, I’d have something in front of me to paint. Yellow snapdragon, fern lavender, and buds on a sprig from a bush near our patio. The little glass dish next to my sketchbook holds taramind seeds. It’s one of the several exotic fruits and strange new things I’ve tried since I moved here to Florida from PA. One of the other things is boiled peanuts, which I kind of like. I’d have them again, actually

    1. It’s not very heavy paper, you are right! The paper is a little thicker than the other sketchbooks I have which are like newsprint paper. This one is heavier for mixed media, so it can handle some (not a lot) of wet media. Thanks, Shawn!
