Cat Nap

"Cat Nap" 16"x12" watercolor on paper

I do love sleeping paintings!  Somehow they make me feel like I too have caught up on my rest!  This painting will be delivered today to Poor Richard's Art in Rogers, Arkansas along with some of my art on giclee.

Ocean View Houses

I've always loved to paint villages, with lots of color.  Seaside or countryside, I've never met a village I didn't like. ;-)  This is a small one.  ACEO.

Doing 30 days of painting

Poppy Landscape ACEO

I am challenging myself to just paint daily for 30 days.  I won't be painting a finished piece but I will paint something everyday which I don't do.  Well some days I take pictures all day or read an art book or peruse art websites but those too get in the way of creating.  So I painted this at 11:50PM last night lol  But it was done at 12:30 - I love that panic button!!!  This is a monthly challenged in Wetcanvas miniature group.  I had never participated in any of that before, usually I just go to the image library.

This video prompted me to do the 30-day deal.  By the way this painting is day #3

The DPW Challenge - Tools.  Yes, that brush is a very good brush, but the hand holding it isn't too bad either!
