I decided for 2012 that I need to make sure I carve out time for this in my life again. So, starting with this past New Year's weekend, instead of doing those extra loads of laundry, dishes, or cleaning the house...I made time to finish the large ongoing Bryce Canyon painting for my friend that has been delayed and delayed by one thing or another. It measures about 30" x 22". Landscapes are not typically my "thing" but I do like the rich colors achieved from several layers of washes on this painting. However, there comes a time when you are just overworking the painting, so I decided this final layer of shadow washes would conclude the piece. I have already emailed a digital photo to my friend who is very happy with it. So, despite my feeling unsure about whether I like my landscapes or not, my client is happy...and that's what matters.
I also created a smaller painting, about 8" x 10", for another friend. This is a little tree frog painting called "Hanging About." Hopefully, this client will also be happy.
And, I signed up for a watercolor "mini workshop" for two days in mid-January. Looking forward to that! :)
Happy New Year everyone! Here's to achieving our goals!
