PAINTING once more...

This is a photo which came to me in an e-mail today. It was taken while I was at a watercolor retreat in October. [With Richard Stephens of Hot Springs, AR]. I'm doing 2 paintings at a time, the "window and bushes" one from a photo of an abandoned house, and the vase of flowers from my imagination....

Seeing myself in the photo, happily painting, inspired me to set up some still life things and paint today!

I had bought some pink tulips yesterday to brighten our gray days now.....

and some red pears....just because I do love them and love to paint them!

This is only a quick sketch of a probable was so much fun to realize the the quick stroke of a brush could add a stem instantly and make the shape into a PEAR!

In also joined Lesley Riley's inspiration for artists program for this year....called "52 pick-up".  Hopefully money well I can be connected to the art world a bit and get weekly e-mail nudges from Lesley!

Now off to run some errands, and then I will watch a DVD of a demonstration by British watercolor artist, Shirley Trevena.
The DVD was a Christmas gift and it is time to enjoy it!

I just love your paintings - so soft and pretty. I need a class, but haven't found one locally. I couldn't go out now anyway -- but when my back is healed I am going to start looking for water color classes.

You are such a talented artist, my friend! I love the photo of you doing what you love best. I hope your mother is doing better. Give her my love. I'm keeping her in my prayers.
