At last! My little art studio is done! I got one last Christmas present from my parents (THANKS MOM!) the day after Christmas. It was a small art table that is sized perfectly for my little room tucked under the staircase. I was so excited to see it that I hauled it to my room and set it up all by myself. I will confess to sitting there for a while and lovingly stroking its surface while contemplating all the fun I could have with it. Then I pulled out paper and got to work.

Out of curiosity, I decided to redo a watercolor pic that I had done several years ago, just to compare and see how far my technique has come.  I found all my reference pics, got them taped to the wall above my art table, cut a large piece of watercolor paper, and jumped right in. Sketching everything out took a while. Its hard to do any art with kids wandering through and touching everything in my studio. "AAACK, honey, put that back!" "No, DON'T SQUEEZE THAT!" "Please put that down!" "That is not for the baby, no touch!" Yeah, you get the point.

So far though, its been an interesting experience. I'm doing things now that seem second nature and as I look at the piece as  it progresses, I sit and think, "Oh, yeah, I remember doing this before on the other picture." Then I'll pull out my first attempt of this picture. I stare at it for a loooooooooooooooong time. Facepalm  Then I put the first version back in its hiding place and think that its a good thing our talents continue to develop.

I promise to post the new version of it as soon as I can. Then you will be able to see the difference and hopefully it will remind you all that we all still are learning and growing. I know I am!
