In Between

I'm in between things here. So I haven't been doing much art lately, which is really starting to bug me. However I have been feeling like getting into all sorts of crafty projects. I've been looking at new patterns to crochet, and lovely and fun fabrics, dreaming about all the cool things I could sew. It must be the season.  I've been busy planning homeschool lessons, clearing out the old to make way for the new. I somehow manage to forget just how much work that is every year. But it's fun. Starting a new routine and all. Once the dust settles I am sure I'll be back to my sketchbook and little canvases.

This is painting #41 of my 100 painting project. It's a view from Botany Bay at Edisto Island, SC, where a long boardwalk takes you through a marsh and on out to the beach.

Yet another gorgeous painting! I love your marvelous use of color.
I can't believe all that you do with your art and home schooling! Obviously you are very organized. You must be a wonderful teacher.

Another beauty! I'm waiting for the cooler weather of fall ( and, not patiently either) to make a trip to Botany Bay. Your paintings are such a delight to see.

I could totally sense the calmness of this one, and I really enjoyed seeing the colors being mixed to show the beauty of nature ^^

This looks very inviting, soft and tranquil.

As always, Ann, your colors are magical! This is one gorgeous place, Edisto Bay, and I'm so glad I can see it through your eyes. I get the craft instead of art leanings at times myself. Right now I kind of want to be working in art. Still, fear keeps me not working on a piece as I should. Always so afraid I'll ruin it! Hoping your daughter is excited about this new school year! I always wanted to homeschool my kids and have suggested that they do that with their own. Neither are willing but I just can imagine how much richer the education is!

Great sense of distance on this one with lovely colours. I'm looking forward to to getting back into routine too..but I get less time to do art during the school year!

It looks so inviting. Lovely! I've been sidetracked a bit too lately. House remodels that popped up out of nowhere, just a whim that moved exceedingly fast. Oh, and I just bound my first sketchbook! Not great craftsmanship, but I learned tons and I cannot wait to make more! You were so right and now I have a sketchbook that has all the features I ever wanted!

Thanks all - I really appreciate your kind comments!
We are still settling in with our routine change, it always takes a bit to get used to - but we are having fun!
Pam - I can't wait to see what you do with Botany Bay as inspiration!
AutumnLeaves - I love your art works! But I am familiar with that fear too. Just have to keep working anyway.
Raena - good luck with your house stuff and I want to see that sketchbook! You will love it!

Beautiful! I love your Edisto paintings. You seem to be as enamored of Edisto as I am of Ocracoke! Nice to have places you love and can return to isn't it? :-)
