As you all know, I am a lover of watercolors. There are a few artists that paint people in a loose style but with great detail and expressions. Today I found another one I adore. The book is called Miss Hunnicutt's Hat. The story is a hoot, and the watercolor to drool over as Miss Hunnicutt wears a live chicken on her hat! I'm an easy target for a Child's book, especially if it's illustrated in watercolor. The artist is Gail de Marcken . You can read about her by clicking on her name.
Just look at the expressions on these faces, and those hats all topped with an animal. I was needing some inspiration as I have not painted since Creative Tuesday was cancelled. Painting is like a muscle...needs exercise. These funny faces is just what I needed to get me painting people again. One of my favorite things to paint.
The countdown for Thanksgiving is on. I'm excited to be in charge of the Dessert Table this year and not the turkey. I made a pumpkin pie today to take tomorrow when I visit Elizabeth. I think the gals at the nursing home would enjoy a little Thanksgiving pie. Will do my baking on Wednesday.
