Finding solace in my art

I am fortunate to have my art. Since I started painting in 2009 it’s always gotten me through the tuff times in life. This week I found solace once again. Like taking small steps everyday to move on I started with small things like cards. I then moved onto a bigger canvas. I will share photos of that when I am done but I am sharing photos of the four cards I made. The cards are now available at Rikki Lou Who’s Gift Emporium downtown Salmon Arm on Alexander St.

World Watercolor Month Days 30 and 31

World Watercolor Month Days 30 and 31. Yippee! Look who made it in time to join the festivities, “Gretchen”! World Watercolor Month wouldn’t be the same without a visit from my dear friend Gretchen. And with my final card of the month, a hydrangea, it’s a wrap. I hope you have enjoyed this month long celebration of watercolor as much as I have.

World Watercolor Month Days 28 and 29

World Watercolor Month Days 28 and 29. I invited my old friends to join me in the festivities. “Ollie” was the first to arrive. I hope “Gretchen” arrives soon.

We are in the midst of a heatwave here in BC but that hasn’t deterred the flowers from thriving. While out for my walks I have been spotting all manner of beauties, including black eyed susan’s. Thankfully not my namesake but I recently did have two black eyes from a bad fall. Good thing I heal quickly.

World Watercolor Month Days 26 and 27

World Watercolor Month Day 26 and 26. Is there an explanation needed? It’s no secret that I adore highland cattle. I also love flowers. Please note the Echinacea (purple cone flowers) have SOLD🔴 As this month long celebration of painting the world in watercolor and beauty winds down I wish we could continue to spread the love.

World Watercolor Month Days 24 and 25

World Watercolor Month Days 24 and 25. Another two cards created. While out for my walk yesterday I came across some honeysuckle. I couldn’t resist trying to duplicate it’s blooms and gorgeous color. The lighthouse is my imagination. Since we are in the middle of a heat wave perhaps I was dreaming of cooling ocean breezes and waves. I will NOT complain about sun and warmth. It was just a week or so ago that we were huddled under blankets trying to stay warm and dry.

World Watercolor Month Days 21,22 and 23

Hello, I am still getting caught up posting my World Watercolor Month creations. This year I have decided not to follow the optional prompts and instead have been doing my own thing. I am however making cards again. With the exception of the birdie sitting on the daisy they are all greeting cards. I am having my usual fun coming up with ideas for this month long celebration of art.
