I know, I know, a knot of dry parchment leaves against a common black cottonwood trunk in early February. The air was clear, the sun so bright. I used to have a shirt this color blue; I wore it out. Watercolor class today was great; only one more session. I finished the poppies; I should be able to scan them for tomorrow. The teacher's name is Terra Feast. I have been wondering how it would be to carry that name, For several weeks I heard "Tara" like Scarlett O'Hara's place. but then I looked at her name tag. I am still trying to decide whether to buy a watercolor block. ..
