Beneath

 I had a great time with Illo Friday this week.  I had two ideas so I went ahead with both of them.  Great practice! :)

I am very excited to receive a new watercolor brush I ordered.  I took advantage of a great sale on Dick Blick and got an additional 20% off of their already great prices.  I will do a posting with a painting using the new brush as soon as I get it.

Hope you all have a great week!!!! :)
