Really REALLY early watercolors


I spent the week at my brother's... for Christmas. He showed me two of my earliest watercolors-- framed and hanging on the wall. The cow and the landscape.

I must have done them when I was 12 or 13 in Junior High.

Aren't they precious? I get a kick out of the quality of line and composition.

They seem young... and hopeful.

I'm glad he has them. They were given to him by a family friend.

How great that your brother has them on his wall! I think the cow is too cute - and the landscape is very good even done that many year's ago.

Love seeing an artists earliest works when they were young. These are wonderful little paintings you did in your childhood!

Just precious, Carol!
Must be uplifting to see them on the wall all framed up....

Vicki, Yes, I think these paintings are precious too. I am glad that my brother cherishes them enough to frame and hang!

Rhonda,
It is great that Sam has these paintings.... The cow is funky and the watercolor not bad!

Susan, Great to hear from you. How is your painting? I never thought I'd see my childhood work again... so much of it was given away or lost.

Maggie, It was fun to see them again. It brought back familiar memories of childhood.
