I had a couple of hours of free time while my daughter was at gymnastics, so I went over to my plein air buddy's studio, which is near the gym, and did a couple of watercolor sketches. Sue and I paint outside all the time together, but not in the winter when it's about five degrees out! It's really fun to play with someone else's still life stuff. She has this sweet brass pitcher that I loved painting. I've put it in a double mat, so it's all ready to pop into any standard 8x10 frame.

It was my birthday a few days ago and my husband got me these gorgeous red sable, Escoda travel brushes, sizes 10 and 6. The brushes come apart and slip inside the tubes that double as handles. This watercolor sketch was my first test drive of the new brushes. I love them to bits! They fit right inside the pocket of my sketchbook cover too.
