Instead of watching TV, do a Watercolor.

I usually have about 7 hours a week to paint with no TV. Taking the leap a few years ago I experienced a relief in anxiety not having one in the house. I have spare time now! I miss the NFL, and Avalanche hockey..thats about it. Here are my paintings of late. I like them to varying degrees with my favorite posted first. I'm working on darkening tones (not being such a Sally with paint) and faces, as usual. One thing about painting that is different than my other craft photography is, a painter can change the weather. I'm painting 4 to 5 pieces a month.

A Blue Bird perches near Twin Lakes, Colorado.

Nell on a Girl Scout Cookie Box. My first leap in abstract, near Longs Peak in my imagination.

Nell at Shaw Arch in the Lower Grand Gulch, Utah.
