HB and I have discovered our local senior center! So far we've attended some digital photography classes and I joined a painting group. This past Tuesday we went on a field trip to The Arboretum and I have lots of pictures to share with you but so far they're still in my camera!
The painting group is a lot of fun...great instructor, very helpful...lots of wonderful people doing all kinds of art...just what I've been needing to get me inspired again.
I didn't take anything to paint the first day. I just took a sketch I had been working on...
Because of the light this looks very blue but it isn't. I did it on plain ol' sketch paper. I worked on this in the painting group and everyone liked it.
So that's what I've been up to lately. We were out of the house almost every day this past week so I'm very behind in visiting blogs and commenting. But the way things are going in Blogland I might not be alone. It seems to be getting quieter and quieter! Facebook and Twitter seem to be taking over everything. When that happens I'll just fade away along with my blog.!
I'll try to get some of the pictures ready for a blog post tomorrow. The Arboretum is where they used to film the opening for Fantasy Island...you know, when the little guy would say "Da plane, da plane!" It's a beautiful place to visit with lots of amazing plants and wild peacocks roaming freely everywhere.
