#4/30in30 - "Gardenia"

"Gardenia" 5"x7", watercolor
One of my favorite flowers - they smell even better than they look!  I almost missed the season when we took our Grand Canyon vacation, but I did manage to get a photo or two this year!

#3/30 I 30 - "Cherries"

"Cherries" 5"x7" watercolor
Lazy Sunday, rainy this afternoon, got some shelving for the garage, which the hubs put together while I worked on this!  Didn't even realize he had gone out to work on it until he came to get just as I was snapping this photo!  Love the pale pink of these flowers when they emerge in the early spring!

#2/30 in 30 - "Magnolia"

"Magnolia," 5"x7", watercolor
Tried to start this one yesterday, but couldn't get it finished.  White flowers are hard...
Trying to get back in the groove of painting every day, I need to be much more organized to be able to!

#1/30in30 - "Pitchers"

"Pitchers" 5'x7" watercolor
It's been so hard to paint lately with school starting back.  And this illness, I called it a bad cold, but it really was more flu-like.  Now I have lingering chest pain when I breathe that I can almost control if I take ibuprofen around the clock.  I'm so exhausted all the time.  But at least I got these done!

Day 24 - "Sweet Cheeks"

"Sweet Cheeks" 7"x5" watercolor
This was a quick sketch of another friend's child.  I was trying to keep it very loose and gestural, while still getting the essence of those sweet cheeks!  I think this might make a nice acrylic on panel painting in the future.

Day 22 - "Jazzy"

"Jazzy" 7"x5" watercolor
Waiting on a delivery on Friday afternoon, I thought I'd do a quick painting.  I had intended to do a flower, but the photo of this little girl popped up.  I had planned to do her sometime so I figured, "Why not?"  
Got her sketched and mostly painted before my delivery came!

Day 20 - Peeking Out

Another late evening, continuing the sunflower theme.  I had intended to just sketch four flowers, but after I sketch the first, I just had to slap some paint on it.  I think it needs some punchier darks, but that's all I have tonight...
