Out My Patio Door 9

 As I sit here and work on my projects I get a wonderful show from nature.
What a nice view out my patio door....

 compared to this....

What a messy time of  year around here.  
It does me good to look up and see the beauty of an amazing sunset.

We have not had any snow yet.  It has been so mild and I know when the snow
starts falling it will probably be a lot deeper than on this watercolor of mine.

I hope you are all enjoying your early November weather.

Watercolor Fun

Long time no see.
I have been having lots of fun painting lots of watercolors since last checking in here.
I thought it about time I do a post considering I forgot my password and had to
look it up.

This piece was inspired by a foto from a very talented watercolorist, Anita Ulrich.
Considering the fact that a Eucalyptus tree has hundreds of leaves... I used that
foto as my inspiration to paint random negative leaves a layer at a time...

All I need to do is take the tape off, sign it and get it in a frame.

What have you been up to lately?  Hope all is well.

I am sharing this with Paint Party Friday.

Calla Lilies

 I love Calla Lilies.
They are one of my favorite flowers.

 A quick gift. 
 I printed out copies of one of my watercolors that I did sometime ago.
I mounted them on cardstock and added assorted lace, ribbons and paper.  Presto, a little gift.

Cherries 2

Hope your weekend is as sunny and beautiful as it is here in southern Germany.

I am working on more cherry watercolors.  
One is in the beginning phase and the other in about phase three with about four.... or so more to go.

Have a great weekend!

Think in Color

Think left and think right and think low and think high....
OH the thinks you can think up if only
you TRY!

I think this is a fun quote from Dr. Seuss....don't you?
I like to think in color too....on some watercolor papers.

I think I am going to have a super sunny day....I think you will too.

I think I will share this colorful project with Mikrokosmos Photo.

A little gift for my godchild. 

 I painted the frame to look like a Birch tree.

A closer view of the texture on the frame.

Hope all is well in your neck of the woods.

Cherries on my kitchen counter.
I am having fun doing a watercolor of this foto.

What are you having for dessert today?  Why not put a cherry on top. Or better yet..
why not have "a bowl full" of those juicy beauties.

Words of Wisdom

I hope this post finds you well.  Just a quick hello from art central.
I collect quotes for all my card art so I thought I would start a series....
maybe you could find some good use for quotes too.
Have a fabulous start to your week!

Ring in the New 2014

 Does it seem like 2013 is all a blur r r r r there was never any light at the end of the tunnel?

Well....we made it and here it is 2014!!!
Aren´t you excited for what the next 12 months will bring!!

I am!!!

 Get ready for the ride of your life!

In case you have not yet decided on any resolutions....let me help with a few suggestions.

You could finally start wearing all your beautiful turquoise jewelry
in 2014. 

 You could get sporty and take up golf in 2014.

You could drink less coffee in 2014.

You could get more vitamin C in 2014....or know you want to go to Rome in 2014.

 You could even run off and join the circus in 2014.

How about taking up ping-pong in 2014...... 

or be brave and finally strap on those roller skates in 2014. 

 Last but not could pamper yourself more in 2014.

I know these are just suggestions...... but one thing we could all do this year 

May it be bright, creative and full of light.

You can see other resolutions here.

Take care and make it a good one!
