We had sun! For about 7 minutes this morning before it slipped under the clouds and left us with a gray and rainy day.


But those seven minutes were wonderful. When the sun blazes through a slit in the clouds it usually lights up objects to the west, and today was one of those days. I liked the stripes across the driveway leading to a pine.

And it hit the twin mulberries as so often happens. This picture is very like one from a year ago.

And, I've started another watercolor pencil attempt. I'm doing these on regular drawing paper because I don't have any watercolor paper. So they end up wrinkly and it takes a while for it to dry before I can add the next layer. Here's where this one is so far. Remember, I don't know much about what I'm doing... I'm just fooling around yet.

In other news: I spent most of the day trying to get the page numbers and headers in Dead Mule Swamp Mistletoe to work right. Finally got that done, and am working on my next newsletter. Be sure to give me your email if you aren't on the list and want to be.

If we had sunshine at all yesterday it was while I was at work and I never saw it. I only saw the gray and rainy stuff.
Experimenting with new things is half the fun.
