Some watercolor paintings

I just love Rascal Flatts song 'Stand'....I can SO relate to it this past year! This is a little watercolor about 4 x 8. I think I'll mount it to wood or something and make it into a fridge magnet....a BIG fridge magnet :)

Sorry for the glare......need to mount this one also so it will lay flat so I can get a good pic! It says 'Friends are kisses blown to us by angels' It's about 6 x 8

Another 6 x 8ish watercolor. She has glittery wings and the way her hair turned out, I think she resembles a dragon fly :)

Here's a little Rascal Flatts for you :) Enjoy and STAND!

Saturday morning fun :)

A little 5 x 7 watercolor/ink....'She Said, He Said' :)

I had to do another version for Dale. This is a funny story from one of our first dates. We went to Applebees and I can't remember what sandwich I ate but as we sat there for an hour or so, I worked on it and finished the whole thing. Later Dale says, 'I can't believe you ate that whole thing. That was one #$&*! BIG sandwich!' So romantic........but I guess I am still with him 5.5 years later :)

This is a 7 x 10

And another little 5 x 7 shown here in a matte

Close up

Have a wonderful weekend! It's beautiful here....I LOVE FALL!

Auction donation piece

Here's a close-up of the 16 x 10 canvas I'm donating to the Mayville State Farmers' Bowl auction this weekend. Not sure how to categorize it....children's art? It's rather dark in color for a child's room, but it's a young girl/angel and I can see it in a young girl's room? Oh well, hopefully someone will bid on her :)

The wording around her halo says 'His eye is on the sparrow...and I know he watches over me'

Here's another 9x12 watercolor painting. She's too funny....young face and old, witchy hands. I titled her 'Not so sure'...because she's just not so sure I captured this one right :) haha

Have a great Wednesday!!

Make the most of your gifts!

We all have our talents.....God gives them in many forms to each of us and I love this quote by Erma Bombeck reminding us to use them!

Happy Sunday!!

Busy, busy, busy!

I'm just not quite sure where the time goes lately, but it's been flying by! My new job has me putting in about 45+ hours a week and I'm really hoping once things settle down I'll be able to find those precious extra moments to check out my favorite blogs again. My wireless router isn't working so I can't even lounge on the couch and try catch up anymore :(

I've had a great, GREAT couple of weeks on Etsy as I mentioned in my last post. It's been shocking in such a wonderful way! Here are a few things I've painted this week. The first here is a 5 x 7 fun little watercolor illustration.

8 x 10 canvas

8 x 10 canvas

8 x 10 canvas

A little 'chunkier' 8 x 10 x 1.5 canvas

And a super chunky 8 x 10 x 2 wooden canvas. I really LOVE painting on these and wish Michaels had them on sale much more often :)

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. The weather here was gorgeous. I know these days are coming to an end soon for us in this area, so I just appreciate each sunny, warm day as much as possible!

Have a great week!

An amazing couple of weeks on Etsy!

15 sales......OMG! That just doesn't happen in my world! But it has and I'm absolutely thrilled and motivated to paint more and more and more! We're heading out of town this weekend for the holiday so I won't get to paint of course, but I sure want to :)

Thought I'd share with you a few of the little things I've painted this past week.

another ACEO

and a final 5 x 7

Did I mention I LOVE my little traveling Koi watercolor kit????? I think I did :) I just enjoy curling up on the couch and sketching out an idea and painting it up without having to trudge downstairs to my basement everytime I feel like painting something.

I AM working on a wooden framed mixed media piece also at the moment. That does require some 'studio' time....way too messy to even consider doing it anywhere else. ha

Wishing you all a fabulous weekend!! Get out and enjoy yourselves before the dreaded snow flies, which will be all too soon in my honest opinion! ;)
