My first in a series of our local old Train Depot, built in 1886. Ink and watercolor on Arches 140#. I couldn't get my scanner to scan this accurately....this is as close as I could get. The doors and window trim is more burgundy than red.
Thanks for looking! Please leave any tips on how to improve.

We drove all the way to North Carolina yesterday to see our darling grandpup!
We did visit our handsome son, too. This fur child is wired for action...she is non stop every waking moment. We took her to the Lansford Canal Park where she proceeded to carry around all the sticks that were much bigger than her.
Can you believe that I went all the way to Charlotte, NC and didn't go to Cheap Joe's???? Me neither.

...exercise from Kate's CD. I was really hesitant to post it......but then I remembered that I had encouraged someone else not to be afraid to post. Doncha hate to eat your own words???
I have a wonderfully glorious view out my front door, so I think I will practice doing some more landscapes. It's really lovely with a heavy snow!

Isn't this gorgeous?! I love it!!!! This is from Delph, all the way from France. How exciting! Can you tell I'm excited? It arrived in perfect condition, and very quickly I might add.
Some of us EDM'ers have set up swap groups, and I'm in the postcard swap. I haven't started painting yet, but have been out photographing potential subjects ( which are to remain a surprise to my fellow swappers ).
Thanks, Delph....I absolutely love it!

Preparation for Kate's Watercolor Pencil Workshop CD. I somehow left out 2 colors, and had to add them at the end. I may redo the chart, cuz those colors outta place bug me.These pencils were part of my anniversary gift! Isn't it just romantic????
