Just Peaches Watercolor Painting

"Just Peaches" Watercolor Painting is 7 x 10 inches. This is also from a Wet Canvas weekend drawing event.

Some thoughts on worry:

Jesus said, "You cannot add any time to your life by worrying
about it." Matthew 6 :27
David said, "He leads me beside the still waters."
Psalm 23:2
Arthur Hays Sulzberger, publisher of the New York Times during World War II adopted
this motto..... "one step enough for me"
"Lead kindly Light...
Keep Thou my feet; I do not ask to see
The distant scene; one step enough for me."

Cat in a Chair Watercolor Painting

"Cat in a Chair" watercolor painting is 7 x 10 inches. This was from a Wet Canvas weekend drawing event for December 25th - a busy week but I managed to get this done! There was also an interesting challenge by the host Elizabeth for a vision board The second challenge was to depict your goal for this year, and I think this cat represents my goal for more "me" time --- not necessarily sitting, but exercising, making healthy choices, reducing stress, and enjoying the moment.

I believe you can accomplish whatever you can visualize. I watched a PBS special by Dr. Wayne Dwyer "NO EXCUSES" and he talked about the movie "Wire" where the man visualized himself for years walking a tightrope between the twin towers, and despite all the obstacles he encountered, he did it.

Flame Rose Watercolor Painting

Flame Rose watercolor painting is 7 x 10 inches on Arches 140 pound paper. My grandson thought it looked like a fire... so that's why it has that name....

And nothing is gained by not gathering roses.'

Coast Guard House, Block Island Watercolor Painting

Coast Guard House, Block Island, Watercolor Painting is 10 x 14 inches. This is a redo of another painting. Looking for another painting, I looked at the other and said it needed to be scrapped. It is 300 pound paper, so very strong, so I put it in a bath and scrubbed it all out until it was light enough to paint over. This is overlooking New Harbor on Block Island with the Rose of Sharon bushes framing the view.

Some thoughts on enduring adversity:

"If we had no winter, the spring would not be so pleasant;
if we did not sometimes taste of adversity, prosperity would not be so welcome."
...Anne Bradstreet

A thought on patience:

it must endure to the end of time.
And a living faith will last in the midst of the blackest storm.
....Mahatma Gandhi

Yellow Rose in Shadow Watercolor Painting

Yellow Rose in Shadow.... this watercolor is 7.75 x 7.75 inches on Sennelier 140 pound paper.

"Every now and then go away, have a little relaxation, for when you come back to your work your judgment will be surer. Go some distance away because then the work appears smaller and more of it can be taken in at a glance and a lack of harmony and proportion is more readily seen."
Leonardo da Vinci

Sketches from Punta Cana























Back from "vacation".... which I put quotes...suffice to say it was a disappointment. I did do some sketching. The first palm tree sketched while sitting at the pool - I wanted to get that shadow. The second is from our patio and the birds and flower are just Chinese style painting.



We did have a parrot land on our patio while my grandsons were eating
some pineapple - they wanted a piece - so we placed a piece in a dish and fed it to them. My daughter managed to snap a picture of it --maybe a future painting.....
