It's so much fun to sketch with the Urban Sketchers group. This is a dedicated, serious group of artists. After two hours of quietly sketching, We take pictures of our work and ourselves. We all learn from each other.
"Art is the most intense mode of individualism that the world has known." -- Oscar Wilde (1854-1900)
Like Elizabeth Gilbert says in EAT, PRAY, LOVE: "You gotta stop wearing your wishbone where your backbone ought to be!"

I painted this watercolor a few years ago, inspired by rooftops and hanging laundry in Lisbon, Portugal. I have "a thing" for rooftops and hanging laundry. Love them! I guess it reminds me of when I was a little girl in Mendoza and Córdoba, in Argentina. There is no nicer smell than the clothes from the line hanging in the sun, is there?

Day 4 of the Challenge. I did not paint this today, it took me a couple of weeks. It is the first time I share this painting in my blog. Enjoy! It is one of the 36x36" paintings for my solo show TRANSITIONS, taking place in February at The Glashaus Main Space Gallery, in San Diego, California.

Spending time in the town of June Lake, in northern California, I visited the enchanting thrift shop and the library. The librarian, a lovely lady called Vanisia, was very friendly and welcoming. We talked about watercoloring, sketching, and how you comcentrate and pay so much more attention to details when you have to draw something, than when you are just looking.
