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

"Broadway Windows" 8 x 10 watercolor $75 This close up of the beautiful stones on the structures in Broadway, England and the windows surrounded by flowers was fun to paint! By enlarging it, you can see how I used a splatter method to created the colorful flowers in the foreground. I also used some dry brush texture in the stones and the wet into wet technique in other places.
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.
