It has been a quiet weekend. Friday evening I painted while listening to the Narnia audio books. I am up to the Horse and His Boy. Not my favorite of the books but still enjoyable. Actually I think The Magician's Nephew was my favorite, followed by The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe.

Then yesterday I was a bit useless. That's what you get when you stay up till 4am reading. I never meant to but I got sucked into the book I was reading - The Butterfly Cabinet by Bernie McGill. It was pretty good - sort of moody and gothic - but somehow did not quite all come together as I thought it would. So I was tired yesterday and not good for much. I did read a little Neil Gaiman (short stories) and did some hand sewing and knitted some while watching MI-5. I am up to season 5 and they continue with their tendency to kill of or otherwise dispose of main characters left and right. In some ways it's a stronger show because of that - I mean it's not very realistic to put people in mortal danger continuously and then NEVER have any of them suffer and permanent damage- but still it's rather intense. It is a good series, I am enjoying it.

I hope to get some art done today! And perhaps some laundry.

This painting is:
8 x 8 inches
watercolor on paper
available on Etsy.
I am fascinated by the beautiful branches forms in nature - trees, wave patterns at the beach - a river delta seen from above.

And.. finally, the winner of this month's give-away is Faith! Check back around April 1st for your next chance to win a small piece of art!
