My apologies! It has been awhile since I have posted. It has been awhile since I have painted as well. I started a new job three weeks ago. I have gone from a sedentary job of selling cars back into a management position in the convenience/gas station business. So far, most of my work has been very physical. a glorified stock boy so far. It has given me a workout everyday! I have been eating a lot of Advil! It has also been very tough on my hands. The first week they were all swollen and broken out with the eczema and very miserable! I would goop them up with cremes and medicines and wear gloves around, trying to get ready for the next hammering. I have started wearing gloves at work. that has helped but hasn't cured. Anyway, I picked these peppers from the garden today and painted them tonight. Large moleskine watercolor sketchbook drawn in ink and watercolored.I would like to thank Joan Yosioka for awarding me with the Creative Blogger award. It is really appreciated! I have never been good at chain kinds of things so I am not good at passing this award on. I have left it too long and many that I would have nominated have been awarded by others. So here are some of my fav's. This may be a double award for them. I am not sure how to make the links, so here goes.
Suzanne at http://suzannebuchanan.blogspot.com I really love her sketches. It would be great to take an art class from her.
