I realize that I could paint the same apple every day and not run out of things to learn from it.

One left. End of the school week. Everyone is ready for our short spring break.

Made a big soft red leather tote bag for myself today - only recently learned that you can sew leather with a home sewing machine, if you have the right kind of leather needle for it. Now I'm daydreaming about other projects.

Misdated, because I'm sleepy. Today's the 25th.

How few lines can I use and still be true to this particular onion?

We're a household who don't carry water bottles very often, so it's surprising to me how they multiply when I'm not looking.

Gouache first, then lines.

Happy first day of spring in the northern hemisphere. I went outside a few times this morning, to see if I'd be able to see any part of the solar eclipse. London had solid cloud cover. The day got darker for a while, and then the skies turned a lighter gray again. That was it. By late morning - long after the eclipse was done - we had blue skies and a few wisps of cloud. Lots of flowers blooming, but no real leaves yet.

Loved the contrast of the heavy trunk and the delicate flowers as I was walking home.

The stems have the smell of midsummer, even though it's just the start of spring.

This pink pear was among the apples outside our corner store. Reminded me of a flightless bird.

Small smooth stone from the beach. Soothing to touch at the end of the day.

Known here as "kitchen roll."

Empty at the moment.

Wet into wet watercolor.

They call them carrot batons here.

Sprouted, it reminds me of some tall cedar tree, but in miniature form.

The daffodils by our front door began to open this weekend.

A leaflet that didn't make it into the soup.

Multiple small ceiling lights meant that this orange had three shadows.

More accurately, a five-minute glass.

Other people in the house like these better than I do - but they are fun to draw.

On the table.

Mark, glasses pushed up, reading after dinner.

One of about four dozen tiny homemade cheese crackers - meant to go to school tomorrow as a contribution to a faculty tea. This one was sacrificed for art, and a late-night snack.

I was listening to the others watch a movie at the other end of the room, and so everything except the lemon needed to be a different color.

Drew the negative space around my right hand.

One big strawberry.
