I really do want to be a more consistent blogger, but that mean, nasty flu bug got me the other week, and threw off all my plans. I was feeling better last week, but my creative brain was still all mushy, and the ideas were just not flowing. But, when I saw this week's beautiful topic I just couldn't let it pass by without drawing up something new in the sketchbook. I thought this would be fun to traditionally paint, so I did some small tests, and realized that I didn't have enough time to do the details justice. I also desperately need to buy some new gouache paints since most of my tubes are dried up and old. So my big plan for tomorrow is to make a trip to Blick's.
