There is only one more day to go in the World Watercolor Month painting a day challenge.  It was a gorgeous day here in Santa Cruz, California, but the prompt was “Stormy Skies.”  So, it was a fun challenge to get into the mood of a stormy day.  I chose a scene with a sky […]

Well we’re getting right down to it – the end of World Watercolor Month and I’m still hanging in there.  I haven’t posted all my paintings here on this blog, but I do have 28 paintings to my credit so far (I’ve posted on Instagram).  Today’s prompt was “Rainbows”, and as beautiful as they are, […]

Today’s prompt:  Cooling Off Our schedules today took us to some hot corners of the Bay where we hit triple digits.  Slurping down our Jamba Juice “Aloha Pineapple” smoothies on our drive home, gave the perfect inspiration for today’s watercolor.

Today’s prompt didn’t necessarily bring anything to mind (Friday night Memories), but when I changed it to Sunday night it was a no-brainer.  We always have popcorn on Sunday nights – with an occasional root beer float thrown in for good measure.  It would have been fun to make all the pieces into little popcorn […]

World Watercolor Month challenge #6.  The theme:  On the Boardwalk.  I just loved the two emotions portrayed – joy and terror and the challenge of doing so (not to mention the two different ages as well).  It makes me laugh and wonder which face I would be!!!
