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

"Almost Hidden" 6 x 6 Watercolor $50 I am still painting on a series of cottage and tea room paintings from the Cotswold region of England, where my daughter and son-in-law vacationed with my husband, Bob, and me last summer just before Fall. It was still quite beautiful there with many flowers and lovely weather most of the time. Among my favorite things are thatch-roofed houses and English gardens. I was pleased with how this painting turned out and hope you like it, too. Click on it for a closer view.
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.
