Happy New Year to you all!

I'm about to start my 2018 art journal with a quick sketch, then hope to do a small watercolor and a small oil before the day is done.  Art Marathon.  Anyone want to join me?

Sketch done.  Starting the watercolor now.  Have already put underpainting (toning) on the oil canvas.

Did an ART Marathon to start the new year. Sketch of Marcus Mariota, Crumpled paper watercolor of Mokoli`l, and oil still life.




Feel good about these as practice pieces.

Thanks, Val.   The signature on the still life is too big, but I was in a hurry to get it posted.

I feel good that I challenged myself to do this and did.

Thanks, Bhavna and Cath.

Actually, I multi-tasked when I did them - watched the Fiesta Bowl and Rose Bowl games.
