Daily Paintworks Happy Birthday Carol!

"Texture Crow 1"  5x7 watercolor on yupo paper

This is my contribution to DPW's "Happy Birthday Carol!" challenge.  Some people say crows bring them fortune.  I just like the drama that I feel inside me sometimes because they're black and they remind me of Hitchcock's movie of course.

I just want to let you know I'm pretty busy these days.  My husband and I downsizing  and hoping to sell our house and move.  So please think positive and happy thoughts and send them to Northwest Arkansas :)  Hope you're having a nice summer!  Thanks so much for visiting my blog :D  

Ok I'll also post my other new painting of strawberries.  I love painting on yupo!  Sometimes my current life events keep me from painting full sheet ones though :P

A Sterling day for Starlings!

"Sterling Starlings" 20x26 watercolor on Yupo

This morning I received a call from a very excited lady who saw this painting hanging at one of the galleries currently exhibiting my work.  She just had to have this for her office so she can look at it daily she said!  She also wants to know what else I have.  She promptly made arrangements to pick it up after our phone call :)  Wow what wonderful way for an artist to start her day!  For me it's better than Christmas since Christmas is not about me anyway ;)

I've been busy cooking up big plans in the background.  Getting ready for September when I am one of two artists featured at Poor Richard's Art's for the month!  :)
