Eight consecutive days in the sketchbook and everything is inspiring me! I’m loving the warm spring days. Seeing the dogwoods blooming every time I pull up to the house makes me happy. With three kids to pick up and drop off, I pull in and out of the driveway many times a day.
The dogwoods have sentimental value to me, as I wrote in a post last year,
“They were in bloom the first time we looked at our future home. We posed in front of them when we brought our daughter home from the hospital. The house itself has changed – expanded to fit our family that also includes two sons. But the Dogwoods have remained and every time they bloom, I’m reminded of the early days and that this is home.”
Playing around in my sketchbook, first in ink and then in watercolor. And a little lettering practice. Still debating if I should add ink to the watercolor. It’s a common question I struggle with. Either way I have to wait for it to dry. Nothing worse than adding the ink too early and it bleeds.
Hope you are enjoying a beautiful spring day!

Inspiration is a lovely thing! I’ll see something and think “I’d love to paint that!” That was the case yesterday when I saw some dairy cows and yellow flowers! So I’m thinking of painting a cow…I haven’t done it before!
A cow sounds great! We are very far from cows here 😄
Sweet memories to inspire you! Thanks for sharing!
Glad you’re keeping the streak going! I’ve get to get to work on some dogwoods myself!
Thanks Jean! I look forward to seeing your dogwoods. I admire your work so much. Wish I had the freedom to join you on your sketching birds in Maine! Sounds amazing. Give me 10 years when the kids are out of the house. 🤣
