First watercolor painting
Feeling like a really proud kindergartner!
I have no memories whatsoever of watercolor painting, so yesterday afternoon when I started it, I just kind of went, "oh, I guess it's like this, and I guess it's like that..." and by the end of last night, I wanted to pull my hair out because it was looking like a mess. Thank god for Skype. Mama gave me lessons over webcam. This morning, I finished it.
(Ken, I blurred out the sign of the shop with you in mind. Hee hee. Thanks!)
I didn't even know how to sign it. Again, thank goodness for Skype and fairy godmothers.
A good respite from the stress of reporting and anchoring in languages I don't speak all that well... I'm anchoring in Taiwanese at 7h00 then Mandarin at 8h00 and 11h00. Oh man.
