Watercolor Class

It was watercolor class day this afternoon. Five students showed up. I usually do watercolor demonstration at the beginning of the class. But I changed it, I let student start painting before the demonstration because I realized that student start copying my demonstration piece. I like to see their works first to understand personality of each student.

My painting

The eight watercolor paintings I have finished for the last couple of months. I took a photo of them and Save images on my Mac.


My doctor encouraged me to do a colonoscopy test. But I didn't feel like doing it. So, I just let it go. When I talked about it some of my friends, they all said that I should do it.
Finally, I made up my mind and called the hospital, I made an appointment for a colonoscopy. I asked one of my friends to drive to the hospital and take me home. OK, I'm ready.

Breakfast Sunday

I had a breakfast at the restaurant in J-town. Three of us get to gather every Sunday morning for breakfast.
It was beautiful morning but air was cold.

Rain, rain, rain.

It was dark and cold weather today. Yesterday was the same weather like a today, but It's wasn't bothering me that much anymore.
It seems that my body got used to this weather. So, I spent all day doing small things actively.

Rain and Visitor

The visitor in the rain. A young man came to my house. He wanted to see my artworks, but not finished pieces but rough sketches and study pieces. That's an interesting request. What is that for?

High fashion

Around the knee area of my old jeans has torn apart. I was thinking that I am going to throw it away. But it's kind of fashionable among the young people, so why not for the senior, too. I wore it and went out for shopping. I am going to keep the jeans for a while.
