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

12 x 16 Watercolor
I had lots of fun with this painting, pouring on intense color, then spritzing with water, tilting the paper in various directions....all done after masking out the mangrove. The background almost painted itself! Then I came back in to do the branches of the mangrove and added some color to the saved white paper for the reflections. 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.
