Everyday I will be posting a painting I have created or am working on, plus comments, tips, and ideas relating to painting.

"Bottles and Lace" 10x10 watercolor on Arches paper $100
I brought this spooner and old bottles home from the antique shop and decided to try some reflections. I sprinkled a few glass balls around, too and used some old lace I had. It was fun to do. Click on it for a bigger view.
I didn't post a painting yesterday (for the first time!) as I was watching the grandchildren. I'm working on a sunflower painting and should have it ready soon.It was great being with the grandchildren--2 boys, 12 and almost 9, but I am tired today!
Painting is my passion and I try to paint as much as possible everyday. I love gardening and decorating my home, but when it is hot like it is here in summer, I find my studio is where I want to be! I have also been writing a book about my experiences in the antique shop business. Writing a book is a lot of hard work, what with editing and trying to get one's ideas down in a concise and interesting manner, not to mention the frustrations of using the computer!! I've almost completed it, though. I love so many creative things, including quilting! There just is not enough hours in the day.
