Well, I may not have been able to go to Rhinebeck, but I did have a fun weekend. I had another watercolour workshop this weekend! This weekend Ray Dirks was teaching. Although I'm not that fond of what I painted:
Sandra WIP
(again, not finished... I seem to have this thing about headless people in my paintings!), I do feel I learned a lot. I also worked a bit more on the poppies while waiting for parts of this weekend's painting to dry:
Poppies WIP
I should be able to finish the poppies on Tuesday.

However, having a two day workshop really makes it seem like there wasn't a weekend. This morning when I brought the paper in, I was quite surprised with how thin the paper was for a Thursday or a Friday... and then I looked at the date. I think this is going to be a looooooong week!

PS: I also got in a bit of spinning in the evenings. I should have some finished yarn to show soon.

Oh, the poppies! If I had a million dollars I'd give it to you in exchange. Simply gorgeous!

I'm planning on putting the poppies for sale in the art show, but I don't think I'll charge quite that much. ;) Thank you for the compliment!
