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.

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

From the Web: Travis Rice Neverland Part 2010

Don't know where this video came from (probably WY) or what the music is about but the riding in it is off the chain. Mostly backcountry terrain these guys (Rice & Carter) make it look easy.
Favorite Line: 0:37 - 0:56.
