Soggy Sunday

It's been raining off and on all day today, so we have stayed inside. Thunderstorms and the whole works. Looks like more is on the way. The power blipped once during the day, just enough to get all the clocks blinking!
Harry will endure (almost) anything. No danger of LAD being bitten, Harry has very few teeth left, at least in the front! (not that Harry would be inclined to bite) However, he might slime you with his icky chin. It's almost as gross as this. Anything for attention.

Is it child labor when they WANT to work? Works for me! He made most of the mess, afterall.

After working in my new art journals recently I've been inspired to break out the watercolors. These things are antiques. Holy crap I'm getting old. I've probably had most of these for at least 22 or 23 years. Some are hardened completely, but most have some juicyness left to them. I've actually been hunting for them for a while and finally ran across them while digging for something else. I had considered buying some new ones but they weren't on sale at Hobby Lobby when I was there looking and they cost at least double or more of these that I already have, so we'll go with these for now. I scrubbed out the old paint crusted in this palette and two others that are larger. Thought I'd just start with this on and see how it goes...
Yeah, pliers required. Left a spot for another green of some sort. The Thalo Green I had was hard as a rock!

WATERcolors. Won't they re-hydrate if you put water to them? Use little chunks. New way to sell watercolors, in little dry chunks!

Cute pic of Harry! :-) Can't wait to see what you're working on with your art journals, Fonda!
