I really have been busy

I don't know what happened to the time.  It has flown by and I haven't posted for a week or so.
I really have been busy with so many things.....like researching for my kitchen redo.  Between the internet and asking friends I had so much info, it was  "analysis paralysis"!
I finally have made my decisions and I promise to post before and after pics.  I'm really only getting a new countertop, but you know how that goes......then I have to have a new sink and 
a new faucet.  While we're at it, might as well replace that garbage disposal which was never powerful enough.  1/2 hp just
doesn't cut it.  Yes, I meant the pun.
Okay so here's what else I've been up to.  
Our hostess for the Eastside Art group I'm in gave us a lesson in painting.  Most all the painting I've done is abstract.  This pic shows the beginning stage of the painting.
And......the finished product below
A big thank you to Jacki for taking the pics and sending to me.
A really big thank you to Erin for sharing her knowledge
with us and for such a fun day!!
Now for some pics of my face practice.  I'm loving Jane Davenport's "Supplies Me" online class.
The above was an exercise in drawing spheres and ovals.  I just filled in with faces.  Who cares if the eyes are a little wonky or the lips aren't quite right?  It's just practice  Below I drew a face over a journal page. 
Jane makes it so fun.......no pressure.  Her videos are fun and inspiring.
Have a great week-end everyone.

Hi Marilyn; enjoy the kitchen reno' .. sounds like you're well into it now and I look forward to seeing pics. Your painting class looks to be a lot of fun and you did so well with cheery sunflowers to take home. Your faces are excellent!
