My sister-in-law's hobby is painting. She also uses charcoal but she has been mainly doing watercolor. I think she is going to dabble in oil soon, but meanwhile she has painted two watercolor items for me. The latest one that I received at Thanksgiving is a street scene, which to me looks like it could be somewhere in Europe or maybe even New Orleans.
Pretty cool huh? I'm trying to talk her into establishing her own blog to show her work, so we'll see.
