A couple of people asked me yesterday, “What have you been doing?” Okay, really, no one has asked me that, but maybe someone has been wondering because I haven’t blogged for several days. Several days is a long time for me. So here’s what I’ve been doing—I’ve been writing plenty. I’m working on something new. And, not to jinx myself, I like the way it’s going so far.
In keeping with my “do something creative everyday” motto, last night I went with my creative friend, Laurie (See Laurie Write & JunqueRethunque), to a watercolor class. Fayetteville artist, Beth Woessner taught the class (follow her on Instagram @studiobeth22). It was my first ever watercolor class and so much fun. I may have the watercolor bug now.
Here’s my sunflower and hydrangea. I still need to work on them, but not bad for a first try I suppose.
Here’s what else:
The Monday Afternoon Book Club of Bryant, Arkansas chose my book for August. Yay and thank you! I’ll be headed to Bryant on Monday to discuss The Accidental Salvation of Gracie Lee, so if you live in the area, come on out! (Bryant is a suburb of Little Rock…) More details HERE.
Look. Gracie Lee’s bicycle.

You have a bicycle now?
Well aren’t you something? Never a dull moment! Love your watercolors!

You can do your own watercolor pictures for your next book cover!
Watching The watercolors blending together is a “high” for me..
It’s also great therapy!!!

I am so jealous about that watercolor class. Love your posies. Was fun to be with you this week.

Little is how it’s done. Little means anything. Words, a letter at time. Books, a word at a time. Love the watercolors, too. xxxooo
