in a geranium garden. She is there but she is also with her characters from a
book fully involved with the story. Yet soon, she will stop reading and
look around at the beauty of the garden, sun spots on the ground, fresh summer
I was exploring a new surface for my watercolors: Watercolor Canvas. Before, I tried watercolor board and thought to try a canvas this time. The board surprised me with the fact that it was practically impossible to place the layers. When I tried to place second layer on it, my first layer would mix with wet surface and simply disappear. From my experience, watercolor canvas has better fluidity than a board; you can make a good wash if working fast and knowing what colors will go in what place (does not allow reapplying though); and, the canvas allows to place a second layer yet it should be darker than the previous one.

How to survive in this busy life; how to manage the day between work and house chores ? I was thinking about this the other day. Especially it is becoming obvious when person is working from home studio and has access to the kitchen 24/7. No I am not talking about overeating (this is the subject of some other blog) I am talking about dividing the house work and the Artist job in a good balanced way. I am still learning. I’ve recently became a full time Artist and a full time Fine Art student. Yes, being an artist practically all my life (including a childhood of course) I’ve given a tremendous opportunity to receive an Art degree here in America (just for myself! not for Mom, not for Society, just for me).. I just need to grab this opportunity from the right end and keep up with the busy schedule.
