About twenty or twenty five years ago I had started painting water colors. I had really enjoyed it very much. But, one teacher quit teaching, the next one met an untimely death due to a heart attack while in her 40's and the last one stopped teaching regularly too.
I was at Pat Catans and saw a flyer about watercolor painting there. So, I signed up again and took my first lesson today. All I did was a little picture of flowers, but I really hope to get back in the swing of things. It is on my to do list, along with a lot of other things. The teacher is in his 70's but I hope he stays around of a long time. He also has a private studio and gives lessons there. I have to find out about them, it is in the next community and would be an easy drive for me.
I am tired of the cold weather, and after a high of 50 yesterday it is now going down to 9 tonight. I guess I am in the doldrums of winter. I like winter till after the holdiays and then look forward to spring. When I left work at 5 yesterday I did notice that the sun was still out and above the horizon. I find when I go to work in the dark and go home in the dark it is very depressing.
Emily and I went to Circuit City to see what they had on their clearance but the big sign said up to 30% off, any thing I was interested in was only 10 or 15% off, I did not buy anything.
