Little Garden Gate by Latane

There is nothing like a gate to make you want to open it, walk through and discover what's on the other side. I painted this from an image I found on the internet. And, yes, I know you should not copy other peoples work!! But, I couldn't resist and I think this is my favorite watercolor that I have done.

Two by Latane

These two are not new, just stuck in my archives hoping to get out... and so here they are.

This one is a pastel I did a couple years ago of a tree by a stream. I'm not fond of pastels but that was all the art supplies I had at the time. 

And, this one is a mocking bird in watercolor. I think the tree leaves should be reworked, don't you? They just don't seem to fit.  But, I'm okay with the mocking bird. Yep, come to think of it... I am going to rework that tree branch and leaves. 

Have a super weekend. Joining Paint Party Friday

Pink Petunias by Latane

The petunias are in full bloom now. And, I just love the pink ones that hang over the planter. These were outside my kitchen window in a window box. So, naturally I had to paint them!! Joining with Paint Party Friday

Finches by Latane

For Paint Party Friday I wanted to share this watercolor with you.  I had made a picture of these two finches sitting on a tree branch outside my daughter's kitchen window. It just kept calling me to paint it so I did.

Hollyhocks by a Fence by Latane

I haven't been on Michael's Scribble Picnic for awhile now. My subjects did not match his weekly theme but I will be on there whenever I can match. 

This one isn't exactly what Michael asked for. He asked for a picket fence. Would this qualify? It may be stretching it a bit! 

However, here it is....
