Miss Blue(s) revisited


last week
I posted a blue cat
so why not
a blue haired girl
or a blue haired woman
it's not the colors that matter
it's the values
these small vignettes/watercolor sketches
are my way of 
making small journeys
there is no success or failure
only painting and learning
thanks for stopping by

Playing with hair

continuing to paint
faces
this time playing with ways to paint hair
it takes so many different colors
so that the eye reads the total as brown or black
I love her smile
she makes me happy
(thanks to Steve Evans for the photo)

Miss Blue takes a "small journey"

my life has been filled with so much inspiration lately
(attending the Florida Watercolor Society convention last week
after having taken the incredible watercolor portrait class from Stephie Butler
in August)
I can hardly  take it all in
but
I am trying to take it one painting at a time
or as jude hill would say
one "small journey" at a time
(have I ever mentioned how much I enjoy her blog?)
above Hana is having a blue day
lots to do today
I apologize for not blogging regularly but I find the more I do 
(draw, paint, quilt, cook)
the less time I have for blogging
c'est la vie

Let the choir sing

as I was painting this one
I started seeing the glads as a choir
singing praises
so I titled it
"Let the choir sing"
