WOYWW 268

Today finds me totally unfocused and lacking  a sense of purpose.  Just one of those days but annoying as we have to start organizing our trip as we leave Sunday.  At least my hair appointment is booked.
This week i started a little class at the Derwent Academy online;  just simple drawing of principles and things I know little about.  No that is not a croissant at the top, it is a shell!


have to show this desk as it is almost tidy.  If anyone wants to send me some OC or anal traits I need them.  I just end up shuffling bits and bobs around the table.  My new water bottle is always there.  I just sorted out my business card index and trew out my past!


Desk below I have doodled around adding to my No Excuses journal and practicing Whimsical Lettering.  On the left is this weeks Prompt for Journal 52.  Really like this project as it is an opportunity to use whatever medium speaks to me.

Hello everyone. Just a brief blog today to welcome our Wednesday get together. Head to Miss Julie's desk to see what it is all about. Writing this on PC and may have to switch to iPad for photos if they do not sync.
Above the desk somewhat tidier than last week and at the top my computer desk moved around so I can face the light when painting. Below first attempt using all watercolors and my new black Unibal Vision fine.

Thanks to everyone sending well wishes re hearing tests. I have Meniere's Disease. It is nothing new as it was diagnosed well over 30 years ago. Now it is better defined and I am trying out hearing devices to see if there is any improvement using them with my hearing.

Between keeping up with my journals last week was a few days of learning Dropbox and other mysteries of syncing. We golden oldies struggle with all this technology as we have had to learn when fingers are large and key boards minuscule. It was a much simpler life when clouds held rain and …
