LEOPARD ORIGINAL WATERCOLOR PAINTING

 "If people only knew how hard I work to gain my mastery,
 it wouldn't seem so wonderful at all."
– Michelangelo Buonarroti

LEOPARD original watercolor painting is 5 X 7 inches.     This pose reminds me of every house cat I have ever had....   The black panther at the Bronx Zoo did a similar pose on a tree branch but the windows were too dirty for a photo.

TWO PINK ROSES ORIGINAL WATERCOLOR PAINTING

 Faith is courage; 
it is creative while despair is always destructive. 
(David S. Muzzey)


TWO PINK ROSES original watercolor painting (7 X 10 inches) done in a loose impressionistic style -different from my usual paintings.   I dropped paint onto  wet surface and let it do is own thing, and then made the roses out of that once it was dry.

SOFT ROSES WATERCOLOR PAINTING

 
Soft roses original watercolor painting, 7 x 10 inches.  I am preparing a painting lesson for my sister, who has some early dementia or, possibly Alzheimer's disease,   that will not require drawing for her, and using just a few simple colors.  This will work for her, I think.  This seems to be the area of her brain (spacial things) where she is having issues.  I'm hoping it's something she'll enjoy, as well as help her.....

People usually fail when they are on the verge of success. 
So give as much care to the end as to the beginning."
– Lao-Tzu
