Whats in my Studio... Or Painting on the Road

Poppies - Work in Progress
Poppies: A gesso and watercolor work in progress while on the road. This has been done in stages. I started in Mesa, Arizona just after the art retreat I attended. The other layers were added in Eureka California while hubby was watching the Super Bowl. 
WIP's drying on the hotel floor
May I add that this particular carpeting was the most unattractive of the hotels we've stayed in this trip. Everything else was quite adequate and accommodating. :)

I had to share the sunset from our hotel room window this evening (Monday). We've been to the dry desert area of Mesa and Yuma Arizona, and are finishing our trip driving up Highway 101 on the California and Oregon coast. 

Fellow WOYWW folks... note that we'll be arriving home after a long drive about the time this posts, and I'll be a very tired girl. I will catch up with you all as soon as I've had a really good sleep in my own bed. 

Check out what others have on their workdesks  Julie's What's on Your Workdesk Wednesday.

LOVE your poppies, they are gorgeous. Carpets in hotels are hilarious aren't they, I think they must get those that ordinary folk would never use in their own homes!!
Beautiful photo and enjoy your own bed, nothing like it.
