Two of a kind...

I recently went to the Dr.'s office and couldn't help but notice the beautiful artwork they displayed,all from the same artist. Watercolors,acrylics,all beautiful Some of my favorites were a combination of both mediums with a little pastel and ink thrown into the mix. This is what i would love to do this year.

Both paintings are inspired by a nineteenth century stone work.
Acrylic ( which i know nothing about !) and watercolor, pastel and watercolor pencil. Actually the acrylic has a failed watercolor underneath but you can barely see it.

Orange you glad it's Sunday:)

Miracles do happen

Yep, two posts in two days... thanks to Martin Luther! The white and flowers are the colors my daughter-in-law picked for our grand- daughters room. Well sort of the color of the walls are the most wonderful green,anyway that and the thought of a new arrival this spring influenced my lighter than usual mood.Actually the white flower painting photographed quite dark.... to new beginnings:)

The good the bad and the ugly

I painted the sunflowers over holiday break, and in my true fashion i managed over squiggle the center sunflower. Impulsively and merrily i scratched away without a care or thought( obviously). So this is in my failed pile. the tulips are this mornings practice on scrap paper. My computer runs so slow that is is difficult to post. That and the failed paintings have resulted in less posts and comments. I plan on buying a new computer soon. In the mean time i have resolved to commit to posts and comments .... weekly i hope!
