The Porch

I haven't been doing much - the illness I had in March never completely went away and I've been trying to behave.  Behaving has never been my strong suit, but I've been doing my best.    Anyhow, I haven't worked on my man at all, but while sitting on the porch recently I decided to try my hand at something "arty".  I have to use the word loosely in this case.

So  first I did an ink sketch, and then later I used watercolors to fill it in a bit.   I'm not very happy with it, but on the other hand, at least I put an implement in my hand and did something with it!  So, without further adieu, here is my humble offering.

I'm sorry you are still not well Nancy! Do you best to take care of yourself - and the sketch is sweet!

Looks like a lovely place for some tea or lemonade....should I bring the cookies? Fell better.

Maybe you just needed to relax and capture the moment instead of mastering a technique such as the "man". Hope that this piece helped to make you feel better.

I don't know why you aren't happy with it - I think it's terrific. The colors are muted but effective.

I can relate to taking forever to kick an illness. I think I'm finally over mine, and I hope yours leaves you alone soon!

What a lovely view of your porch. Perhaps that is the best place for your right now - taking it easy with pencils and paper to hand! Hope you are soon well and truly on the mend

This looks like a lovely place to just sit and be for a while. And it looks pretty "arty" to me ;)
