Chris Beck has honored me with a feature on her blog, BRUSH-PAPER-WATER. She selects various watercolor artists. I feel fortunate to be included with so many outstanding talented people. Chris is an extremely accomplished artist, herself. Her blog, "I'm Painting as fast as I can" showcases her work. She started the second blog to generously promote others. You can check out the blog by clicking on the title or go to the blogs on the side and find it there.

I spent half the day exercising and the other half undoing all the good as I tasted my way through lots of cooking. Too much work getting ready for the holiday to spend anytime drawing or painting. Sometimes my other roles in life have to come first. One more day of preparation, then I can get back to painting. In the meantime, I am mentally planning and painting up a storm!

Above is a sketch I did of the Ministry of Agriculture. It was across the street from a sidewalk cafe we were sitting at. Madrid has a million buildings with statues on the top! I don't understand the concept. No one can see and appreciate the art up that high. Sculpture is fun to draw. It is like a life drawing class where the model is guaranteed not to move and you have all the time in the world.

Ah, but what is one day of preparations compared to forty years in the desert? ;o)

Love the vignette style of this sketch. You should go to Prague next time. You'll have a blast sketching all the sculptures and sgrafitto on the buildings. It's a beautiful, beautiful city.

Congratulations on being on the Brsh-Paper-Water blog, Myrna! You deserve to be featured with the other fine artists who have been on those pages since Chris started this! She has introduced me to some old friends and some new ones, too :)

Myrna., what a wonderful compliment and well deserved! I love Chris Beck's work and her generous blog that features other artists. You have such an impressive list of credentials, and you have put in the time to earn them. Love your sketches from Spain. Makes me want to return.

Congratulations, Myrna. An honor indeed. You are in stellar company. Thanks for the hook up to a new blog for me. Beautiful work. Happy Holidays. Kathy

Thank you all for your kind words. Chris is doing a wonderful service for the watercolor and art world. A generous spirit as well as a huge talent.

Nava, Prague is on the list but it is a long list. Hope the legs hold up! Some days in Spain it felt like I had been walking for forty years.
