A Quick Fix

I do enjoy the holidays, and I can enjoy the "art of nothing" with the best of them, but...after a week of not painting, I start to feel very restless. A few quick watercolor sketches ought to do the trick. Ahh, that felt good!
Next week is a rather large family party at our house, then foot surgery on the 5th. Then, finally, back to the studio to get started on a few painting commissions.

Lovely sketches Peggi!
Good luck with the foot surgery! Hurry back!
I hope you have a Happy New Year!

Thanks Manon! Not looking forward to the surgery but I'm sure I will be much happier once it is all said and done. Happy New Year to you as well.

G'luck with the foot surgery - perhaps it will give you some down time to paint & sketch! You keep inspiring!

Really rich little water colors, Peggy. Very pretty and fun.

Foot surgery- ouch! I'd use that as an excuse to just sit and paint ALL WEEK LONG while recovering. Hubby will have to feed and take care of everything for the wounded soldier. (I'm sure you know how the 'big eyes' works)

We girls don't get these opportunities to often.
