Happy, a Good Day to Be

"Happiness is never stopping to think you are". Hmmm, wrap your brain around that one. This painting is watercolor and watercolor pencil on 140lb. arches watercolor paper. It is 10 1/2" x 6 1/2".
It will be on etsy tomorrow. I will list it sometime at my leisure... it is Mother's Day, you know.

It's a good day to talk about happiness. As a mom I have five kids and 2 lovely daughter in laws, a near son-in-law, two awesome grandsons and 1 adorable grand-daughter (who is turning one today!). That's a lot to be happy about.

Life is Just Beachy

A couple of days ago, I came across a fabulous watercolor artist by the name of Charles Rennie Mackintosh. He was an artist/architect from Scotland around the early part of the last century. His lovely work made me want to get my watercolors out and paint! I have been painting in acrylic for the past year, but there it is nothing like the delicacy of watercolor and it beckoned to me.

I am a bit rusty, but I did a little 7" x 5" painting titled "Life is Just Beachy". With summer coming on, and peaches not quite in season, I was imagining bare toes in warm sand and a feeling of how great life is. I really love painting in watercolor.
