Tonight was life drawing night, but I was too tangled up inside about my day job to go. Then I talked to Dearest for an hour and was better. Too late to go, by then... So I took Daughter to dance and worked some more in the car on my laptop while I waited. That also helped me to feel less overwhelmed.
Then I got home around 8:30 and painted this in two hours (it was white paper with some pencil lines when I started). Watercolor, 18 x 24. Fast, for me. Not done, but a long way from the start. This felt really good to do. I haven't painted large in weeks.
This weekend we left the guys at home and went to visit UNC, Asheville. Here are some photos. A scene on the street of Asheville (Catholic basilica downtown). OK, so it's more about the tree - what do you expect? A shop where Daughter bought a yellow beret (on her list for a while, but we hadn't seen berets anywhere until this hippy town) and Dearest let me twist her arm to try on a dress which I later persuaded her to buy. And the last photo is of my girls, seen from inside a shop they had just left - with huge amaryllis in the window.
