It looks like this...



It looks like this too much lately. I am ready for the snow to stop covering my moss every morning!

Cold and Grey


It's even foggy today although it's quite cold and there's a storm warning...perhaps we'll get some snow.

I really have had enough winter and hope to see some more signs of Spring right quick.

I remembered this trip to NY Finger Lakes wine country and this beautiful old home that was just abandoned. The trees were bare and so were the windows, it gave such an eerie feeling...like it held secrets of all the lives spent there.

Yes there is....


A Lighthouse in Utah! Not exactly ocean front property...yet!

There is this light in Cedar City, I think, and it must guide travelers on I-15.

Enjoy!

Lush Surprise

Honest, I've been painting everyday, I promise. Just finished this at Midnight...5x7 on 140# Arches. I love lush greenery. Live in the perfect place, winter here means the ferns and moss are rampant.

There's a surprise in the lush...

Teeny Tiny Mini



Only 2 x 2.5 inches, this little bit is a Dollhouse miniature. An original painting, it will be placed on an artists easel (miniature) as a work in progress.

Magnifiers here I come...

Black and White


Background is an interesting choice...like the almost photo quality of a painting with a black background, sure makes the flowers pop off the paper. I like the white of the paper as well for watery watercolors.
Do you have a preference?

Enjoy your day!

...the ninth day...


Sun in a Jug...missed posting yesterday, rampaging virus had me tied up :>)

Hope your day went well!

Waiting for food

Just hanging around "Waiting" to snag a snack!

Dreary days, time to think beach and sun and fun!

Off to dodge the pellets of rain and paint a bit, hope your day is productive.

Keepin' on...

Well, somebody is having fun in the water...or maybe just looking for a quick meal. What is fast food for Orcas? I'm afraid it consists of a mammal or a school of salmon.
See you tomorrow, I hope!

Portraits


Here's a strong profile...
It was a start and stop process and only one of the many attempts survived.
So far, so good...off to do a bit more painting and enjoy the play offs.
Hope your day is enjoyable!

A View from the Top


Holiday cactus in bloom, viewed from the top so all the flowers are somewhat visible.
Off to paint again...G'day!

Waiting for Spring



Here's one of many I started to work on yesterday..."Spring in a Jug" only 2.5 x 3.5 inches inks and watercolors.
Happy Day! See you tomorrow...

Paint each day...




I finished this yesterday, although it appeared much differently in my head. The Metallic gold background neither photos or scans true to color or luster. I am off to paint again...
Have a Great Day!

Happy New Year!


It's the Resolution Season...best laid plans and all that. I am hoping to paint on a daily basis. Not necessarily complete one painting a day, just paint daily. If I complete one or more little bits in a day, I will be truly blessed. If I learn something new each day, it will be a wonderful year!
I only hope I can remember half of what I learn.
