The Everyday Matters weekly challenge this week was to draw our phone. I wish I had a lovely antique phone to draw, or even a modern one with some character. It was hard to get excited about it, but then I really warmed up to the page when I decided to draw an ear to go along with it all. The plan is to write down all my important phone numbers on the white spaces on this page -- that way I have a backup list, and I'll remember where it is!
Its been a busy week, but I have gotten in a bit of art, although it isn't anything anyone would really want to look at. I bought a new shade of yellow watercolor -- Winsor Yellow, which I'm thinking will compare to Hansa Yellow, a shade that I've been advised to get but can't find in the local art supply store. If this yellow doesn't suit me I'll be sure to order Hansa Yellow when I next place an order through Jerrys. I also picked up a nice deep staining purple, since I really only had one purple and it seemed a bit reddish to use to deepen the shadows on my greens, as advised by Jim. I know, I could have just "blued it up", but then what would I have gotten to BUY this week???
