Inspired by Lindsay at The Frugal Crafter, blue skies and birch paint-along:  https://thefrugalcrafter.wordpress.com/2013/10/19/lets-paint-blue-skies-and-birch-trees-today/

Sometimes I overcome painter’s block by taking a walk outdoors,  looking at snapshots from previous outings,  revisit a sketch, or finish a painting that was not sparking properly at first go.  Lately a purse sized portable set has been easy for short sketches and cards.  Today I tried another fun video paint-along/tutorial from The Frugal Crafter. Thank you for posting Lindsay!

Another try it from The Frugal Crafter, watercolor teacup tutorial (around here it is renamed,  “Moxie after Midnight”).  https://youtu.be/M1EGRDF3Qso  Though lacking a Naples yellow,  or the decadent pies,  it was still fun to keep my brushes busy until I have more time on the weekend.  This is the last week of school,  and the kids are so very excited!

    1. The tutorial was in the fall, but it is a lovely spring here so I adapted. My tree also decided to live by a lake and lean a bit. Mostly personality, part stubbornness, those Maine birch trees.
