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

A Cherry Morning
"A Cherry Morning"
6 x 6 watercolor
I hope you will ignore the two gray pieces on each side of this photo of my painting. The size of the painting is 6 inches by 6 inches and the format of my camera just could not capture the whole image without seeing the background board the painting rested on or leaving off part of the painting! Anyway, you can click on it to get a close up view. This painting was a demo for my painting class. Yes, we ate the cherries afterward!
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.
