Painting #1 – Bullards Bar reservoir – 11 x 14 inches
I will be busy with having my grandson over thru Saturday so I decided to post today. The above painting was painted allaprima and with few colors. I often like to get in and get out but often with watercolors this makes it difficult. I try to retain my whites while painting on the quick, perhaps I am addicted to drama and being under the gun!
Painting #2 11 x 14 inches – Bullards Bar reservoir
Another one of Bullards Bar reservoir which is my playground. I am within 2 miles, I feel lucky to have such a wonderful place to explore.
Painting #3 wip 11 x 14 inches – abstracted landscape of Sand Pond
The above painting is a work in progress, I am hoping to keep the minimal, abstracted look. I often overwork a piece because I want it to be perfect, I still struggle with this tendency. I am hoping that this “problem” will get better and better at leaving that tendency behind.
The update on the care of my father-in-law, the eldest son wants all three of them (three sons) to take two days a piece and leave the 7th day for myself and his wife. We will take turns so that means that I will be not as busy as I thought. Though that means that my husband will be caring for his father on the weekend. I will be going over in the evening on one of those days to spend some time with both of them. At first I felt resistant to this plan but I think that my brother-in-law is adamant that the responsibility lies with the sons, I understand that and I agree. Too often wives take on too much and the guys get off the hook.
Well that’s it for now, have a fantastic rest of the week!
