I've had enough of winter
I always know when I've had enough of winter. I start dragging out my photos of dearly departed bouquets from spring and summers past. My version of pouring over seed catalogs, I guess. This is a watercolor I have just finished using 300-pound Arches watercolor paper. At $16.00 a pop, staring down at a sheet of this paper can be intimidating. What if I ruin it? So, I quickly cut the sheets up in 8 x 10-inch smaller sheets. Now I'll only ruin a $4 piece of paper. That isn't so scary. These originals are listed for sale on Etsy.com and soon on dailypaintworks.com (links in the right-hand margin.)

They said, "Write about what you love." So this is my take on life as an artsy sort of DIY-er in the Pacific Northwest. This is where you can view my painterly adventures and assorted creative pursuits.
