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

9 x 11 Watercolor
In Florida, there are few Deciduous trees and you don't see many colorful leaves until winter actually, when some trees look quite "Fallish". However, I found some very colorful leaves lying about especially the beautiful crotons. Arranged on a piece of paper, they were quite attractive to paint. The background is white, but the camera darkened it. You can see how colorful some of these leaves are.
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.
