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

9 x 12 Watercolor
People are always bringing me specimen flowers and I love it! I always want to paint them, but often they
are blooms that only last one day. So I have to "get on it" and paint like mad! Both the Fringed Hibiscus and the Passion Vine bloom only last one day. However the buds hanging down on the Hibiscus bloomed after the first one dropped, so I had a few days to work on it.
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.
