Also, once I saw someone else doodling on leaves, I couldn't help myself. All my practice leaves now look just like birds to me. That's all I can see now. Birds, birds, birds...

Head full of flowers
I've started an online class this week - Color Drop Flowers with Martha Lever. This is so much fun, except for the fact that these pesky work obligations keep me from playing. These are my first efforts. I see all the things that can be done better, but for a beginner, I'm happy with them. And I loved all the special techniques Martha uses. I still need a good oriental brush - I can't believe that I have almost a dozen of them, but none are what I need (none make a good point at the end). I did find a squirrel brush at Michael's that I've used some. It's close to being a good substitute, but some of my petals look a little, well, squirrely. Go figure. I'm using the other brushes more for now, just to get comfortable with the technique.
