3 Red Radishes

"3 Red Radishes"
watercolor (6" x 6")

I don't have a thing to say about "3 Red Radishes".
But I did notice that today's blog post is my 450th.
That's a lot of paintings to paint...and those are just the "good enough" ones to post.
Can't wait to see what the next 450 paintings are going to be.
Thanks for joining me...old followers and new ones alike!

Barnscape 5-Sold!

"Barnscape 5" 
watercolor (6" x 6")

I believe it has taken me 5 Barnscapes to get to my favorite. 
This was demo for my students yesterday: a great lesson in seeing color, claiming the values, and to simplify, simplify, simplify.

Montalcino, Italy

"Montalcino, Italy"
watercolor (20" x 10")

It is wonderful when an experience occurs in your life many years ago,
an even though at present day you may not be there 
.... you still have the lovely memories.
Icing on the cake for an artist....I still have fantastic reference photos to pull from.
Its like the gift that keeps on giving!

Be Calm My Soul-Sold!

"Be Calm My Soul"
watercolor (6" x 6")

I adore this piece I did today...can I say that?
It just all came together....wanna hear how?

1. One old hymnal I bought at a used book sale
2. One orange picked from back yard
3. One blue dress from closet (haven't worn it yet...its for summer)
4. Open the hymnal randomly...this is the page it fell open to
5. Start painting
6. 45 minutes later, finished painting and walk away with a lighter spirit...coincidence? I think not!
