A Valentine for Tommy

I figured it was about time for me to send another letter to my brother, Thomas, who is serving a mission in Brazil. Since it is almost Valentine's day, I thought a valentine would be appropriate.

Tom leaves the MTC in Sao Paulo for his mission in Belem on Valentine's day. In his last email, he said he was nervous about leaving the MTC and actually going out and talking to people about the church. In my letter, I told him not to be nervous because:
"You're off to great places. Today is your day. Your mountain is waiting, so get on your way!" (my favorite Dr. Seuss quote).

I sure do miss him and I hope he can tell by my letters and paintings.

In other news, I bought an opaque projector today. Drawing is just not my thing, as you can probably tell by my lopsided heart. I just get way too frustrated, especially trying to draw anything on a large scale. I'm sure it wouldn't be so frustrating if I just practiced...but I don't wanna! It will be so much faster and easier to have an opaque projector. And I will be able to do a lot more BIG paintings...well that's the goal. I'm really excited and I have lots of ideas in mind.

Modern Floral Watercolor 5

I got a new handmade watercolor pallet from Designs by Rachel Beth on Etsy and I couldn't wait to try it. I'm pretty excited about how this one turned out-- especially the yellow rose shape. That one didn't turn out so great the last time I tried it. I think using a smaller brush helped.

Doodles from my Journal

I've been doodling for a couple of days now and I've really enjoyed it. It sure helps pass the time at work and I like to see what I come up with. Here are a few pictures from my art journal. They will all eventually be painted.
