Since my favorite spot for eating breakfast is at my art table in studio/sun room - I have picked up the habit of painting while I eat and listen to public radio. Im doing quick watercolor sketches. This one us based loosely on an August Macke painting you can see on a post card lower left. Its a nice way to start the day. this might be the inspiration for a new felting project.

Ron Ridley of Elk Grove gave a demo on his technique for very loose expressive water colors. Large quick brush strokes. At one point he worked with the paper turned bottoms up. This is where he loaded in the darks at bottom. In all he obly took 20 minutes to create his painting.

One of the mixed media gals challenged us to do something with a cloth bag she supplied. Of course I painted a rose bud on mine. The other little paintings were just for fun. I had not painted for a couple days what with Mothers Day and grocrry shopping. And trimming roses.
The one on the right has a checkerboard background because i snipped off the damaged end of a palette knife and wanted to see what a squared off end could do. Wet on wet acrylics. This is the result.
