Yellow Roses Watercolor Paintings

 
Yellow Roses #1 through #4 watercolor paintings are 5 x 7 each and for a gift for my brothers and sister.  We are planning a yearly get together soon and these will be a surprise, along with a quote about families:  
You don't choose your family.  
They are God's gift to you, as you are to them.
  ~Desmond Tutu


 I have been reading a very good book called "The Happiness Project" by Gretchen Rubin  who also has a blog.   One of the things that gives us great pleasure is in giving, which I realized in reading in her chapter about "friends" and in particular about just being generous. Not because we have to or some obligation, or even for a 'return',  although the return I get is great happiness.  I believe this is what this Bible verse means.

Give, and you will receive. Your gift will return to you in full--pressed down, 
shaken together to make room for more, running over, 
 and poured into your lap. The amount you give will 
determine the amount you get back."
Luke 6:38

One Pink, One Red Roses Watercolor Painting

One Pink, One Red Roses watercolor painting is 9 x 12 on Arches 140 lb paper.   I bought these roses for myself.   Why? --- remembering the poem,

If of thy mortal goods thou art bereft,
And from they slender store two loaves alone to thee are left,
Sell one, and with the dole
Buy hyacinths to feed thy soul.
by Moslih Edin Saadi

Miner Bird Watercolor Painting

Miner Bird watercolor painting was also part of Wet Canvas's WDE for last weekend.   

I have wished a bird would fly away,
And not sing by my house all day;

Have clapped my hands at him from the door

When it seemed as if I could bear no more.

The fault must partly have been in me.

The bird was not to blame for his key.
Robert Frost, "A Miner Bird"

Warwick Museum Art Right Now Show of Paintings

Warwick Museum art show currently hanging is a compilation of Art Right Now  Meetup group.  a group of artists that meet once a month showing their art work for a particular subject (picked from a hat).  Starting from the top left and going clockwise, the subjects were :  dance, bees, bird, spots, brick and smile.  There are of course more subjects.  One of my paintings from these meetings sold (subject was band - it was a painting of a band of horses).    Very interesting seeing everyone's interpretation of the word, and the show should be a great one.   Opening night is August 9th and 7 pm and the show is running until August 31st.   If you're in the area, I hope to see you!
