always last minute and a shrunken head!

So as always I'm running about 10 steps behind where I should be. I created this little watercolor last night as an answer to a bingo basket I was suppose to contribute to for my oldest class. The theme was Candy. As always at the last moment I grabbed the watercolors and snatched frame off a shelf... and walla!

Now this is the start of my apple doll. About two weeks ago I carved an apple into a face. Hung it over my stove to dry out after soaking it in salt and lemon water. Now that it's dried and shrunk quite a bit it's looking pretty decent. I hope it's not about to mold on that dark ear. I really should have dried it in the sun. Next step... the body and clothing.

I like your little candy painting!
And we were just talking about dried apple heads (my friend tried it but they molded!!). My kids and I are reading "The BFG" and I think your apple head looks like the Big Friendly Giant!!!

I tried to post earlier this evening but blogger was down. How do you paint a picture so quickly??

honestly I kind of think in pictures constantly so it just comes out. I'm better at expressing myself in a visual than verbal way.
Sooooooooo, I can pop out pictures like most people pop outconversation.
They aren't always great, but they're pictures.
