New Floral

I painted this yesterday morning from The Watercolor Flower Painter's A to Z by Adelene Fletcher. I had a really fun time painting the many colors in the white flowers. I still have a few touch up's to do but for the most part, it's done. I will sign it soon.

Flowers at Ceasar's Palace

I took this photo at Ceasar's Palace. I had to straighten it a bit. I am going to paint it. All watercolor enthusiasts are welcome to the picture.

Michele's Visit

Michele came to visit from Wednesday night to Sunday. We have a wonderful time! We went to Mt Charleston for lunch where it rained and sleeted mushy sleet and we took lots of pics. We went to the strip and to some neighborhood casinos where we lost $$$ and then won at all back. Yea Us! I miss my baby but my heart is good from her being here.

We Love Watercolors!

Yesterday was our first meeting of the Watercolor Group of Las Vegas at my house. It felt so good to have my first house guests and to paint with my new friends! We talked about paper, paints, and misc equipment. A year from now, we will have great painters among us! Our next meeting is September 9th at 10:30.

I have been painting

Here are my latest two paintings. I'm thinking that landscapes are my "thing". I love the detail in them. Both of these are guided paintings from my many watercolor books. I got lost for awhile there.
Michele will be here tomorrow and I am so excited. She will stay until Sunday. Kate and Dave are in town also but they are doing their "Las Vegas:" thing and we will see them on Sunday for Brunch. Have fun Kate and Dave!

Living in the Desert

Yes, the first picture is one of my thermostat in my van, less you wouldn't believe me, lol. The second one is a cactus at the Sahara library. There are painting opportunities everywhere! I am going to attempt to paint the cactus. To my painting friends: Please feel free to use any of my photos for painting. I would be proud to see the photography in watercolors!
