I woke up this morning to a whole whack of snow—gorgeous! Perfect for putting me in a Christmas mood. It was my downtown studio day so I decided to take some tree ornaments with me to paint.
I’m on a total watercolour kick. It’s not even “Watercolour Wednesday”, but I’ve already got my post done for Wednesday so this is an extra one for this week. I remember when I was in high school my mom told me that I had a knack for watercolour and should do more of it. I also remember being a snob about it and saying that I had no intention of being a Watercolour Artist.
I took some progression photos of this one just because it’s kind of neat to see. And a fun detail: can you see the reflection of me in the blue and pink ornaments? Too fun.

Awesome! Very whimsical! (and I’m jealous of all your snow, but maybe it’s on it’s way here…)
Thanks Pickle! I’m sure your snow is coming ;)
yes Dayna, you are so talented at bringing things to life. Love it! Theresa wants to know why you have “his” name on the bottom of your paintings and not yours. She was quite indignant, but she loved the watercolor you gave me :)
Ha! Thank you mama, and tell Theresa thank you too. I debated a long time about which name to use—though I like the way Dayna Bordage goes together :)
Dayna, another beautiful piece! WoW!! Glad you listened to your Mother!!
Thank you Marie :)
