Wren in Watercolor • Nature Sketchbook

Another month gone! April was a particularly good month for me and May is shaping up to be great as well! I do love progress and I've seen quite a bit in the last month to six weeks. For some reason, I go on a walkabout and forget to use my day organizer/calendar/goals minder. Every time I do, production goes way down, things start falling through the cracks, and I get overwhelmed. This month I've had my day organizer and my list of tasks and I've stayed on track! Yay!
I am calling the "cutest little wren you've even seen" complete for now. I chickened out on the experimental idea, but haven't totally abandoned the idea. This always happens when I have a painting turn out better than expected - I stop before "I mess it up." Would I mess it up? Dunno. Not gonna find out either!
I signed up for Apple's one-on-one classes today. I've been a Mac user since the early 90's but there is so much more to these machines than meets the eye, and in just the 20 minutes I was in the store, I learned several things. I think it will be money well spent helping me to harness the power of technology in general, and my computer in specific!
I finished out the month of April with 30 little boxes on my Creativity Log painted in! Woohoo! Thirty straight days of doing something creative and most of that drawing or painting. I am now two months up of straight creativity. We'll see how long the streak will last!
Now with the wren finished, I'm off to go and find my next painting. I'm thinking flowers, but my muse is probably thinking something else. I've had a couple of visions of rusty stuff float by a time or two, so it may be time to do a painting of something rusty. Maybe flowers in a rusty can. And a bird. And what about a butterfly. Or a dragonfly . . . . .
