Now to go through them and mat and frame a selection showing my take on this medium.
Scary but fun and so blessed they want to show off my pieces this one has yet to be done more to give you an idea as I am still learning as I enter my 3 rd year of Watercolor.

This is another I am working on

Off to cut mats and fit paintings with particular frames.  I am excited but scared but so looking forward to demonstrating watercolor at my reception.

Have a great day everyone!

Even More Art In The Gallery

I added 2 framed pieces of Watercolor to the Theme Wall at Seacoast Artist Association.  This month’s theme is Wild With Color.  Now I could have framed some of my amazing Sunrises even Sunsets or Pink Peonies.  Maybe my popular monster Sunflowers even but I chose two of my colorful landscapes filled with tree trunks with pretty bark 🙂

No longer laid out against my red countertops but are in pretty rich brown frames under glass.  I will miss them if they sell but even looking at them here as I type I can see I have grown much like a tree 🙂 ever changing and it make me so happy.

Still not comfortable with others judging me or my artwork but I can not sell it if I do not put myself out there 🙂

My town is celebrating it’s 275th birthday and the committee group is trying to raise monies for a parade and fireworks so I donated one of my framed pieces as a raffle gift hope enough like it to raise $40 or $50 for my part of the cause.  All starving artists have is what they create.

I did straighten out the title lol

Mom is doing great I have more good days and the pup my sweet little girl rests more and loves the pumpkin cookies I make for her 🙂  Going grain free myself and hoping her and I will be back at our fighting weight 🙂

Do you know I did not climb up once on the roof and only raked it once shhh it is only March and I will finally turn 60 I can not believe it myself lol there were many close calls and still not gray!

Here is what I did the other day thinking of taking my girl for a walk to go find some 🙂

Thankful For This Unusual Winter

Wow what a difference a year makes and in so many ways!

There is very little snow on the ground yes I know it can still just be a tad late but I personally am through the worst part of winter, with spring arriving in what, just 4 weeks!  I am dancing even with sore knees.  lol Not so sore I took a shot in each and it helped a lot and will give me time to get my pup cared for and guess what Mom’s surgery on left knee was such a success she is being allowed back home early!  Wow see what I mean about being thankful.  So many prayers said and great thoughts and energy how could she suffer again.  Thanks so much.

Our garden club will attend the Boston Flower Show next month so heads up there maybe flower photos soon lol  We are now taking orders for Pansy Bowls at just $15 for a full 12/14″ bowl brimming with pretty little flower faces I can not wait for mine to greet me each day as I arrive home.  Maybe I will try to paint them 🙂

Having Mom be in a better place my man doing OK with his pacemaker and my knees not hurting so bad now to get my pup feeling better all will be right in my small world.

Not sure about my reader so many I left a like on today I had not seen forever and ones I usually see were missing 😦  I will keep searching till I find you 🙂

I am going to try to add this video here not sure if the video will work 🙂

Just a moment in my world lol

I made an attempt at getting comfortable at a gallery I belong to and attended a Feb. 14 Art Party where I had a Black and White Pen and Ink / Watercolor hanging as well as Wolf Moon on a special wall our local Watercolor teacher invited her students to show thire piece of winter watercolor.  I actually unwound and had fun 🙂

Waiting on Mom’s fourth knee surgery appointment to be set up, so while my brother and sister in law took her to doctor appointments in Boston we set off in search of used picture frames, for my first public(besides all of you lol) Art Show.  I did not find what I wanted so today and tomorrow I will search and then buy new if need be.  I must drop the 2 of them off by next Saturday.  I will take a photo of them up with all of the other artists entries in this themed show New England Coast.

Have a great weekend and Happy Father’s Day to all the Daddy’s out there.
