The beach is calling my name.  This past week I've been busy with laundry, list making, organizing, and packing.  Needless to say, painting has been placed on the back burner, but only temporarily.  I have many ideas going through my head for my next painting(s) and I'm anxious to make them a reality.  I've also received some great photographs to use as inspiration.  Thank you to those who have sent images.  I always welcome fresh ideas.

I didn't want to leave a post without a picture, so as I was reflecting on what to post I remembered a painting I did in college of my niece.  It's titled "Maddie" for obvious reasons.

This was my second attempt at a watercolor portrait and although there are some flaws, I was able to capture her personality and the shy expression on her face.  I always promised myself to paint my own children's portraits and have yet to fulfill that promise.
