I teach tonight, so this is going to be a short blog. Actually I hope I can publish it,
because when I went to publish my blog yesterday I got a notice that I had too
much on the Cloud and I might not be able to do it. But if so – Yay!

Last night I was staring at the beautiful tulips sitting in an antique coffee pot, and
thought I have to draw these right away. I decided to use a red ball point
pen, because if I got around to adding colour the drawing would recede. Then I started
painting with acrylic ink. The ink is such a pleasure to work with and I had so much fun.

I’m not sure if I’ll get another layer on today or not. The colour looks so strong when
you first apply it, then when it dries you know need more.

Wishing you a week filled with creativity. Stay safe and stay healthy.
