I think I am going back to posting sketches from my Bright Ideas journal
on one day… I like them all lined up at once and really,
they are not special enough each for its own post… Usually!
I tried wetting the page on this one…
Doesn’t really work… bleeds through as the pages are about 20lb…
The simplest item can hold a memory…
The French glass that Kamala and I used to “argue” over…

Hi Kate, about the sanguine red, good question. I answered it on my blog comments but then realized I wasn’t sure it would find it’s way to you. The color is PR187 and is darker than quin red but in the same “line”, a blue red instead of a yellow red. Hope this helps, it’s a gorgeous color!
That tells me a lot. If you haven’t heard about Jane Blundell, this one page is great: http://www.janeblundellart.com/painted-watercolour-swatches.html

Love the bracelet! What is Taxco silver?
Our cats try and drink from our bedside water glasses too – until we covered them with heavy coasters!
Sorry I’ve been swamped…
Taxco is a region in Mexico that does the best silver and is prized for its artisans. My mom had quite a lot of it but this piece I bought for me. The best thing for cats drinking is those French glasses with the covers? They are also good for stopping spills when the cat pushes the water on you in the middle of the night!

I’m behind with everything too! Over in Wales visiting kids/grandkids
Will get back to painting/blogging etc when I’m home next week, but poor M laid up with shingles so still won’t get much time
Oh gads, not Shingles. Horrible. My family is prone. Hugs…
