I really had a need to create today. Completed two pieces. I feel crusty and hunched over in need of sunlight and fresh air. Tomorrow will be for work. Going to have to take a break from the brushes.

Merry Mermaid & the Water Gremlins

I really want to make an enormous watercolor mermaid. I bought the expensive watercolor paper to do it but can’t get started. I generally have time for small paintings because I want to finish something. When I have worked on larger pieces I always use acrylics. I may start one Sunday. Just dive in. I really love all the possibilities of the seahorses here. Maybe I will start with one of them. They are free and fast and don’t have hands that I can never draw quite right.
