I journeyed for far too long through far too much snow and traffic, leaving early to arrive late at Capricon, where I was scheduled to guide whoever showed up at my table in the Midwinter Faire through the mysteries of acrylic painting.

Well, people not scheduled to be doing things at the con mostly stayed home, but I acquired a companion and we painted wet things. I got one painting done (or almost done) and another started.

The next day I was scheduled pretty solidly with panels and readings, but Saturday I got to two different art workshops, Intuitive Watercolor (the first time I've been pleased with the results of me playing with watercolors) and The Eraser Is Your Friend.

So, art:

I haven't decided whether I will add to the watercolor, so I haven't removed the tape yet, and the others may be edited a bit still (the rockscape is definitely not done yet, and the sea monster probably needs edits to be Torn World accurate), but this is as far as I got on these at the con.

Oh, yeah, the invitation:  We have a new contest at Torn World with the theme "travel". http://www.tornworld.net/forum/viewtopic.php?f=20&t=1127  Entries can be poetry, fiction, metafiction (or for that matter other cool things like songs) paired with art.  Entries can be from one creator or from more than one creator collaborating.  Would anyone like to collaborate with me?  I'm willing to work with you on canon details, or if one of these (or the blue bird I did last Sketchfest) inspires you, but the results aren't canon, they can still be shared on the site.  Alternatively, if you're an artist, I could work on some writing to go with a piece.  You can, of course, also do something without me--I'd love the competition!

I should note here that right now automated registration for the forums on the Torn World site has been disabled due to persistent hacking attacks.  However, a real person can contact ellenmillion directly and become a registered member of the forums by administrative fiat.  Questions left on the forums (about the contest or world-details or whatever)  get friendly answers.

About to get onto doing some stuff to tidy up our Relay for Life team, wanna stop by to say I get a regular email from Goodreads and they've got some sort of poetry contest:

I don't know the details but wanted to let you and Ysabetwordsmith know.
