be so pleasant: if we did not sometimes taste
of adversity, prosperity would not be so welcome."
--Anne Bradstreet

With all this rain we are having here, my thoughts for today are on water, but the kind that quenches our thirst rather than the kind that ruins our weekends.... there is also a 'water' for our souls. "If anyone thirsts, let him come to Me and dink." John 7:37

Beavertail Park, Jamestown Watercolor Painting

Beavertail Park, Jamestown, Watercolor Painting is about 12 X 16 inches done on Arches 140 pound paper. This is plein air painting done yesterday, which turned out to be a gorgeous day here in Rhode Island. I took lots of photos to work on paintings in my studio, but it's great to be outside to see the colors. I loved the contrast of those rocks and waves crashing against them and the delicate rose flowers that grow wild along the coast.

Just a reminder again that even though I am not posting here as regularly, I am painting every day! I have nearly completed the illustrations for the first book and ready to take them for scanning. A contract for a second book is "in the mail"....

And I would feel remiss if I didn't give you a word for today....this is from "The courage to Change" and is a quote by Francis de Sales:

"You learn to speak by speaking, to study by studying,
to run by running, to work by working; and just so
you learn to love God and man by loving.
Begin as a mere apprentice and the very power of
love will lead you on to become a master
of the art."

Prison Door Watercolor Painting

Prison Door watercolor painting is 12.5 x 10.5 inches on Arches 140 pound paper. This is from a Wet Canvas Watercolor Studio June challenge, reference photo which I enjoyed doing. I will attach the 'plaque' to the back of the painting, photo below.



Doors are interesting. I'm thinking of the possibility of doing a series of doors from different places.... They represent so many things...

There is no state of final fulfillment.
Each change opens new doors and ushers in new possibilities.
....Margo Adair
