Art is much less important than life, but what a poor life without it! ... Robert Motherwell
"All great art is expression of man's delight in God's work, not his own." John Ruskin

Painting Still

Primrose Pots, watercolor, 11 x 15

A Rose is a Rose, watercolor, 11 x 15

With the wonderful arrival of summer I am looking forward to some nice walks on the beach, but I have been so busy with the set-up and arrangement of our new home, all of the added chores and errands that come with moving, and exploring this new and delightful community I have not had one moment to do that. I did go sit on the beach a few weeks ago, when Darrell (my brother) and Karen came to visit, but I really do need to go and collect some seashells soon. I have not given up painting.....FORBID!!!!!!! Our watercolor group has taken a short vacation for the summer months, but I know all of them are continuing to paint just as I am.
Above are two paintings that I completed recently. With my cheap little Kodak I struggle to get a "straight" picture of my paintings, but I wanted to share these with all of you. I hope you enjoy!

Leanna, Isaac and I are very impressed with your roses! Don't you think that this one would look good on a tea set? ;)

Very nice Leanna. Like your new place. Must be nice to have a little studio just for your own space. Darrell
