Watercolor Landscape painting: Blue Eucalyptus

Blue Eucalyptus, 3.5 x 6.5 Watercolor (sold)

Thanks for all the nice emails and social media tweets & comments on the last post about making little art, and painting Artist Trading Cards. That trend, combined with the Painting a Day movement – which emerged at the same time – was like a double current of sanctions to work in small format to my heart’s content. Now, 10 years later, I feel a medium-to-large work surge approaching. [insert eyebrow wag & hand rubbing here] Interiors and still life, with coastal influences are brewing….

My new little studio should be ready to Making Something (arms-up & a big whahoo!) next week. The towers of boxes are gone, and piles of art supplies, framing stockpiles and out-door art show gear have all been stashed, snug enough to make a Tetris champion proud. Just a few social engagements to go this weekend, and I’ll be flinging pigments. 🙂

Did you see this post on the Winsor Newton site featuring three tips for lifting watercolor?

Art Quote

I believe the universe wants to be noticed. I think the universe is improbably biased toward the consciousness, that it rewards intelligence in part because the universe enjoys its elegance being observed. And who am I, living in the middle of history, to tell the universe that it – or my observation of it – is temporary?

~John Green

What I’m listening to:

Write something.... pretend we're neighbors, and we’re painting watercolors together in the garden....
