Working the Big Watercolor

Some of the past week was spent on this large scale watercolor--- developing depth and motion in the water. It feels good to return to watercolor.

I was a little sidelined but other distractions...but now that school is out-- I should be able to work on this piece continully.

I want to see this piece finished!


Additionally, today I bought my first piece of REAL art from - SUSAN BOSTWICK.

She's a fabulous ceramicist from Edwardsville, IL. I fell in love with her piece at a group show... and just had to have it!

Today-- she delivered it to me..and of course... I am trilled.

Please check out her work at:

You will adore her work.

Thank you Jeanette.... The water painting is slowly developing. Maybe today will make progress.

Thanks Rhonda... I am happy to be returning to watercolor too... but the weather isn't cooperating! It's way to dry for my washes...:((

Arti.. always like seeing what you're up to on FB... LOVE your new work!

Sandy! So NICE to hear from you! I know you're painting up a storm. Hope all is well with you and your classes...

Kathy... thank you from the bottom of my heart for this compliment. I am trying to finish this piece today.
