Nan's Art Adventures

Join me while I explore watercolor and sketching! I'm new to this, having never thought of myself as "artistic"! (I'm having a blast, as I learn!)

30 years in dentistry lead to early retirement, to be my husband's caregiver. He passed away February 10th, 2008. I am thankful I found art then, as it continues to help me now.

EDM Challenge #78, Draw a Souvenir

This is my first Every Day Matters Challenge Drawing. I have been admiring so many other EDM entries. I thought it was time for me to get busy and do one myself! I've found EDM by being a member of the yahoo group, The group has provided me with plenty of art tips and instruction. Also I have made new friends, both in person, and all over the world via cyberspace. EDM offers encouragement to all artists, whether just beginning, or well accomplished!
This sketch is of the sealing wax and stamp that we purchased in York, England on a trip about fifteen years ago. It was in a wonderful store called Past Times ( that was oh so very British!
York was so memorable to us! The old and charming buildings on such narrow cobbled roads, an amazingly huge cathedral, and walls that surround the town that we walked upon! Michael loved the enormous train museum! (Well, it would have to be big, to fit so many real train engines inside!)
