What Fun!

 Jim and I watched a David Smith demo Tuesday afternoon.  It was so much fun!  I need to work on things like my roots, my water and my rocks, but I learned a lot and, as always with David, I had a blast.

The Line King

 Jim and I just watched a wonderful documentary called "The Line King: The Al Hirschfeld Story."  It's free if you have Amazon Prime.  What an amazing guy!  He did caricatures of Broadway stars for over 70 years.  I love theater, Broadway stars and Mr. Hirschfeld's art!  This was the perfect thing to do on a 110 degree Las Vegas afternoon.  Happy Tuesday!

Entries for Fall Watercolor Show

Wow!  It has been a month since I posted anything.  I have submitted 3 paintings for consideration in the Nevada Watercolor Society Fall Show.  I've posted 2 of these here before.  I hope one makes it in๐Ÿ˜Š.  They'll let us know in the middle of August.  Each one is 1/4 sheet on Arches 140 lb cold press.

Have a fabulous evening!

David Smith + Online Workshop = Fun!

I took a 4 day online watercolor workshop from David Smith this week.  It was great.  I learned a lot and had fun while I was learning.  David is very generous, talented and funny.  The workshop was Monday through Thursday 7:00 a.m. - 2:00 p. m.  (Pacific Time) with 45 minutes for lunch.  We painted a New York City scene, 2 florals and a misty woods scene with our choice of wildlife. 

David's studio is in Eden Prairie, MN.  So cool - he has a mama wild turkey hanging around his house with her 12 babies and deer wander around his house, too.  Next week, I'll post some things I learned.  He has workshops coming up and he'll be doing a free demo in July.  When I have all of the information on the demo, I'll post it in case any of you would like to check him out. 

Have a wonderful weekend!

Second Attempt

Here is my second attempt at trees in the mist.  I used David Smith's demo again.  I still need more practice, but I'm going to try something different this week.  I'm taking an online workshop from David in two weeks.  Exciting and fun!
