What did you do this last weekend?
I got caught up on two online class videos on Saturday and started two pear paintings. I used a limited palette in watercolors and found this to be a challenging exercise using only complementary colors…
My first one was using yellow and purple:
And my second color PEAR-ing was orange and blue:
I struggled getting the affect I wanted or maybe I was trying to hard to be PEAR-fect!
Does this ever happen to you?
After MANY layers, I decided to quit and eat my pear for a snack! Lol! 😉
I got caught up on some housework on Sunday and made a delicious Chicken Tortilla Soup in the crock pot. Overall, I’d say I had a pretty great weekend.
How about you?

Hi! Jack here –
I tried to explain to my mom that it was neither sunny nor Sunday but she ignored me.
As you can see, “Jack Frost” was visiting us this morning:
Brrr, it was really cold on my paws…. so I just stayed inside like any intelligent cat would do!
Back to Saturday, uh, today…
Mom wanted me to tell you that she has decided to take a break from posting her art on Saturday and Sunday. I know she really enjoys it but she has been kind of tired lately. More naps with me but she says she doesn’t get anything else done around the house.
I really don’t see that there is anything more important than a nap except maybe eating but she didn’t agree with me. Fancy that!
Anyway, enjoy your weekend and make time for that nap! I know I will! 🙂
See ya! Jack
