Tim tams and a new bike...what more could you want?

Meri Kurisumasu! We had a great Christmas morning, Jack was overwhelmed with new and exciting toys. We ate nothing but chocolate for breakfast and then played all day. Here is some of the excitement...

This is actually one year ago. When I uploaded the card from Keith's camera...there it was!

Evidence of Tim tams all over the face...and a new bike!

Mixed media, shmixed shmedia

I am learning a lot in this class, primarily that my strengths are in digital mediums and not in the get your hands dirty type. Week 1 and 2 focused on pastels and I just finished week 3, watercolors. Surprisingly, I actually enjoyed watercolors. This was my first time and the way they have a mind of their own created some very interesting details. I am certainly not super psyched about this work but...I figure I can only improve from this point. Next week, acrylics...yippee!
