We have a historic barn/farm 2 miles down the road from us and it looked so lovely one Sunny Winter morning that my husband took a photo of it--and I decided to watercolor it. This is the painting that is over my mantel in an earlier post (see below). Someday, I may use the picture to put on a Christmas Card?

We were watching TV one night and to keep my hands busy--so I wouldn't feel like I was wasting time watching the tube--I got my sketch book and "did" my mantle. Did I spell it right? or is it Mantel??? Also, that's a 'sketch of a painting' I did over the mantle.

We visited this Mill on the Blue Ridge Parkway and have pictures of it in different seasons of the year.I decided to do a painting of it after we arrived home. We were on our way to Blowing Rock, NC. Has anyone heard of the "Mitford Series" of books? They are based on life in this little town and are quite addicting.
Another place we love to visit is Mingus Mill which is quite South in the Smokies. I usually get my "Stone Ground Cornmeal" here.
OOh, that cornbread is so good. I'm really on the food kick today.
Maybe it's because I'm being careful how much I eat. :-)

We just returned from a week at the Great Smokie Mountians National Park. It was "peak" color! I couldn't stop picking up the pretty leaves, thinking I could make them look pretty good in watercolor. It was fun dropping colors and letting them mix on the wet paper.
