I started this blog ten years ago this month! I feel pretty proud since even though I have been a bit sporadic with blog posts, I have kept painting the entire time. I started an Instagram account thinking that I wanted something more direct and easy; so I could just post a quick photo after doing a painting. It was nice and direct and easy, but I was also a bit lazy with it. I took photos on my phone rather than my good camera which was fine for Instagram, but not good enough for my blog. Now I am having to go back through and re-photograph all the paintings that I did. It feels like a lot to catch up on for my blog. I still want to put them up here though. Especially the 30 days project that I did in April during the quarantine. I may just have to throw them up here in one big slide show.
For now here are two watercolours that I did on Saturday because it was such a glorious day–maybe one of the last days to enjoy my patio this year. The first one with the tree tops is looking up at the sky from my patio. Lately I have been fascinated with capturing those whispy clouds that stretch across the sky in watercolour, and I am very pleased with how this one turned out.
Then just before supper some crazy clouds and wind blew in, and I did a quick study of the clouds out the living room window. Very pleased with this one too.
