Happy weekend! (Lucy says hi) So, what are your plans? We’re sadly leaving the mountains behind and returning back to Atlanta, ending what was a lovely, after Easter vacation. I’ve got some 100 Day Project updates and (happily) announce that the original paintings from this project are going to be available for purchase. I’m so […]
Did you have a good (holiday) weekend? We went to the mountain cabin, hung out with a few fantastic visitors and enjoyed glorious weather. It was lovely. But let’s all admit this one fact – even when you have a fabulous weekend with friends, nothing beats the feeling of quiet and solitude after. It’s the […]
I snapped an image with my iPhone yesterday and posted it on Instagram asking, “Is it finished?” Once of my biggest issues when painting is knowing when to walk away. I have learned over the years that if I have that question, walk away then return to reassess. What’s your take on the subject? The […]
Hydie ho! It’s Friday. Any plans? We’ll be hanging around here – chasing the dog, losing sleep, you know, the usual. I’ll be painting, too – hopefully. Remember when I said I used to paint house portraits? Well, I did along with many other subjects. Lately, it’s the house portraits I’ve been focused on. I […]
A very happy Monday to you! I hope you had a lovely weekend. It’s still pretty quiet around here as I continue to care give (I have a new appreciation for that line of work!). Thought you’d like to see my little weekend painting. I imagined a cornucopia of flowers rising out of their rather small […]
Remember this watercolor from my sketchbook? Such comforting words. Such sweet memories of my childhood church. I’ve wanted to have it scanned and made into a print for others to enjoy. One of my favorites because of it’s vibrant colors and simple message. I kept the ink away from this one so that the colors […]
After two long years living and working away from his home, hubby is moving back to Atlanta this month. Life will return to a normal state of being. It is, indeed, well with my soul. • The “It is Well” watercolor is now for sale as an 8 x 10 art print. Have a beautiful day.
a new project… Love Jane Austen. Add to that the fact that I’m a self-proclaimed homebody and you can see how this quote quickly became one of my favorites. I thought that you may feel a connection as well so I decided to make my most recent painting available for purchase. :: For more information […]
Watercolor Painting 101 is a place to learn about the art of watercolor in a relaxed, non-threatening way. (I’m as non-threatening as they come) To see earlier lessons, visit the WP101 page. Did you follow last week’s lesson? If not, hop over because it’s a two-parter and this is part two. Part one provides the base […]
At last. Hi all! I’m so happy it’s finally arrived – my favorite season. This past weekend was not only beautifully cooler but an unexpected surprise. We truly enjoyed every moment together and on Sunday, Jessie and I headed to church, always a great way to begin my week. Today, I am back in the […]
Never underestimate the power of… you.
To me, butterflies always seem to wander aimlessly. So, I thought I’d add in this little fella. wander (verb) walk or move in a leisurely, casual, or aimless way. I like to think of myself as a casual or leisurely wanderer. But in all honesty, I think I’m more like that butterfly. What kind of […]
