KThis is a tiny watercolor box (life size) I found it on a garage sale (1€) this is a little treasure. There is a "Geo Rowney and co" inscription inside (before the company became Daler Rowney) an antiquity probably 100 years old! When I bought it all the pans were dried and black, rusted inside, with a tiny and cute good quality brush (sable hair and goose feather) . Probably some people would have kept it like this as the beautiful old antiquity it was, but it was not its destiny. I decided to give it a second life! I removed the dried pans, cleaned the rust carefully and refilled with fresh color. I just love this little box and now allways have it in my bag next my sketchbook. It is the most little , light and handy watercolor box I have ever seen!

January and february have been mostly occupied by the creation of three murals in a senior's residence. One was the reproduction of the main place of the local town, the other was a trompé l'oeil in the kitchen, and finally a sketchy mural showing countryside life in the old times. Painting the old façade was great but the best fun was painting the animals ! I really missed Daily painting during this last two months but I couldn't manage doing both correctly, a matter of experience I suppose
