Little paintings

Playing around with little watercolor paintings while we're traveling. I'm in Mesa, AZ to attend ARTzona - an art retreat hosted by my friend Trina. Our first pre-retreat event is a hike at Usery Park this afternoon, timed to coincide with the sunset. My camera will be in tow and I hope to have some lovely photos to share.

These two paintings are finished, of the several in various stages in my kit. Lot's of rough sketches to convert if I'm able to concentrate.

I am still working slowly on my 30 paintings to be completed by the end of January. Traveling has interrupted the flow a bit and we'll see if I can "get 'er done".  That is my catch phrase for the year, by the way. "Get 'er done." Usually it's prefaced with "suck it up princess". :) I got that phrase from a mentor years ago. Suck it up Princess; get 'er done! Ha!

Hope your week is going well!


Sharing with the lovely artists at Paint Party Friday, hosted by Eva and Kristen.  Do take a peek to see what wonderful art they have created this week.

Your hummingbird is beautiful, Helen. That's the kind we have around here in the summer - the ruby throated hummingbird.

The watercolors are difficult to work, so I see you use the safe. Saludos
