Watercolor Wednesday Things I love by Art by Erika

"Snowy Walk" ACEO

I love RED! And when there's snow, colors stand out even more, especially the cardinals where ever they are perched. And the dogs are so much more frisky when they go out for walks, not even minding how cold it is and how much their owner is not really enjoying having having to bundle up and brave the weather. But they obviously love their pets so off they go daily!

But I like red on objects. After I painted this I looked in my closet to see if someone might guess my affinity for red. Well, I learned that I wear pretty much any color, though most of the time I wear black or something neutral like gray or navy blue. Go figure!

That's precious, Erika!

I love red, too. And in fact the wells of red paint get refilled more often than any others in my watercolor palette.

Goodness you're so right about the red running out quickly! Guess we're a couple artists who simply loves COLORS!
