I prefer to focus my creative bursts on photography and/or baking. However, this summer I decided, after reading Diane Salter’s great blog, to give watercolor pencils a try. It has been fun and I have a few pieces that are sort of presentable.
One of my former students was lamenting her lack of creative work in the past few months, so to inspire her, I photographed the pictures you see here, emailed them to her, and said, “I know you can do better.”
Her reply was, “yes, Mrs. Zody, but you’ve done well for someone who doesn’t have any artistic ability.” She remembered the terrible stick figures I would put on the board any time I wanted to demonstrate what I hoped them to do for a project.
I’m hoping she will send some of her work to me soon. I know it will be better. This has been fun, and perhaps next summer I can do some more.
