Day 9 : Storm

I do believe I overlooked Day 8 : Workspace

I'll get right on that.

Days 6 and 7 of the 30 Day Watercolor Challenge . . .

Day 6 : Shadow
 I'll be real honest here.
Not all of these are the first attempt.
The ones that don't make first cut are in the wastebasket.
Day 7 : Light

But from time to time, I get some keepers.
It would be fun to frame all of these alike for a show sometime.
Display them together in order.

We'll see how that idea turns out.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Daily watercolor challenge . . .

Day 5/30 : Food
Oatmeal in my Favorite Mug
I've set out on another 30 Day Challenge, this time watercolor.
I came across a list on
Pinterest the World's Greatest Time Suck
and challenged another friend (hi, Lorrie!) to paint with me.
The list is easy and it works so we don't have to look around and decide what to paint.
Step one checked off with that list!
I also found a little meme that I think should be printed and framed
and hung in all studios, if not just mine.
"Draw something every day even if it sucks"
True. Lots of sucky material here but brain-expanding and hand-warming.
Day 4/30 : Simple lines
Sumac across the field
This gets my blood flowing over my first cup or tea
and organizes my thoughts in the morning.
Love starting the day like this.

Day 1/30 : Anything
Martin house in my yard
Day 3/30 : Zoo
There is a bar in Lincoln called
The Zoo Bar
Famous folks drop in here
just to jam and hang.
BB King - Buddy Guy

Day 2/30 : Explosion
My hand
Mmmmm . . . splotchy

Watercolor miniatures . . .

'Tis the season . . .
. . . and here we go

Two shows on the horizon for now and I'm busy with these little watercolor cards.
Quick, fun, easy, and I'm in love with the way they are turning out.
I'll be offering these as individual cards that are completely suitable for framing.
What better way to own a tiny piece of original artwork than this!
See? I make it so easy for you.
