Spring Flowers

Here is a peek at a new painting I recently finished.  This is watercolor on a watercolor canvas, which I had never used before, and don't think I'll use again.  I had a hard time getting the watercolors to flow and move easily.  But with a little patience, I think I was able to save the painting. 

Has anyone ever used the canvas??  Curious on your thoughts/experiences....  Leave me a comment!!

So Now What???

So now what?

Have you ever had 'artists block', not knowing what your next subject will be?  Well, I have so many ideas I'm having a hard time deciding on what to do first.  But, I guess that's a good thing.  Just wish there were more hours in the day!

Recently I finished a painting, 'Tiny Dancer'.  I feel it has alot of energy.  It was my first time painting a person (or figure if you will), so I'm really pleased with how it turned out.  I have entered it into a juried exhibition recently, hoping to be selected to the show.  Here is the painting.  I'd love to get some feed-back on it!!

So, tonight it's on to a new painting, a new inspiration....  I'll let you know what I come up with soon!  Have a wonderful day, and Happy Painting!
