Today I finished my homework for the last class of "Seeing" Sketchbook Skool. I'm a little sad to see it finished. I'll have to wait until January to possibly take another course, they haven't even announced what the next installment will be. I don't think I'm going to take "Storytelling" as I'm not any kind of a cartoonist and at least two of the teachers are spectacular cartoonists. Hey, if I were rolling in money, I'd buy the course just to watch those amazing artists do their work and see their sketchbooks. That's one of the most amazing things about these courses. You get a glimpse into the teacher's personal sketchbooks. They show you their favorites and sometimes even their very first sketchbook. It's such a gift to see all that personal drawing.
So, I did a building. Our building, Woodgrove Pines Apartments. Obviously, the building is round. You get into the lobby through the door in the inner courtyard on the other side. You can see the tree that grows in the circular walkway in the middle of the in the inner circle courtyard. The circular nature of the building makes for interesting shaped rooms, I must say. My bedroom is pie shaped, lol. So's the kitchen. The eating nook is about three feet wider than the other end of the kitchen. It was a hoot to watch mom try to arrange the furniture in a eye pleasing way. Kind of impossible in a pie shaped house. She's a former interior decorator so this frustrated her to NO end. Anyway, this goes into day twenty-six of Art Everyday Month. Only four more days to go! I heard that! All of you saying FINALLY, she'll be done posting everyday. Hmmph. ;o) Best,

I'm a watercolor and mixed-media artist who blogs about her adventure in paint. Come visit me at JustAddWaterSilly.com. I also am a contributing editor for Featuring magazine, an international english language art magazine published quarterly. Previously I owned my own wedding cake business (for eight years) making designer wedding cakes decorated in handmade cold porcelain flowers. It was fun creating three dimensional real looking flowers as decorations but I really wanted to be a painter so when I moved I shut down the business. Now I paint, blog, write for Featuring and review good books for fun. It's a good life.
