From My Past

Years ago I took a break from painting to work on doing some creative ceramics...mostly glazing my own tiles.  This is a hummingbird tile I did during that period.  I am sharing it today because since I had surgery just six days ago, I have not yet been "up" to getting any painting done.  I'm sure I will have something next week for Paint Party Friday with Eva and Kristin!   Thanks for all the prayers and well wishes.  All went well!

A Pretty Pink Dahlia

How did everyone (in the U.S.) celebrate Independence Day? Hope you had lots of fun, food and fellowship. 

Today I have a watercolor done from a picture taken of a dahlia in my daughter's flower garden. I hope you enjoy it. 

It's Paint Party Friday

Please keep Marie, who is my daughter and Paint Party blog partner in your prayers as she had some surgery yesterday. Thanks.

Cape Hatteras Lighthouse

My entry today for Paint Party Friday is a watercolor of the Cape Hatteras Lighthouse in North Carolina. 

It is the tallest lighthouse in the U. S. In 1999 erosion over the years had caused the lighthouse to be just 15 ft from the water's edge and so was moved to a higher location. It's located in Buxton, North Carolina on the Outer Banks and is a big tourist attraction.

Post Card Art by Marie

Joining Paint Party Friday with two small watercolors:

Two weeks ago I had a table set up at the Farmers and Artisans Market on Crooked River Ranch to see if I could sell some of my paintings.  But, no takers.  Sometimes it takes a while to find your possible market.  In the meantime, I thought I might be able to sell something smaller and less expensive.  Our area attracts visitors, and we have many sites of interest to them.  I did two post cards, roughly 4X6" (which is very small), of watercolor paintings of two places nearby, and I plan to do quite a few more....

 I plan to pre-stamp them so the buyer won't have to make a trip to the post office, they can just drop them in a mailbox.  I will sell them for $3.50 apiece.
This scene is Deschutes River Canyon on Crooked River Ranch, Oregon.  It is actually behind my property and down a steep hill!

This one shows The Three Sisters mountains, with a treeline in the foreground.

Here's what my table looked like...

I'm Back!

I don't think this is a new share...I did this painting many years ago and I think I posted it early in my participation with Paint Party Friday, but in case you missed it, here is an oil of a great blue heron at sunset on the James River (Virginia).....I haven't been painting in almost two months but plan to get at it again this week, so I will have a post of new work next Friday!
