My favorite watercolors of the year.

I haven’t wrote on here in awhile. I don’t know if people read blogs much anymore but I do enjoy writing so I’ll keep on keeping on even if I’m only entertaining myself. 

To catch up, with everything I meant to post this year, I thought I’d do a couple of year blogs to showcase my favorite creations of the year.

These are some ATC’s, that is cards that measure 2.5 by 3.5 inches. These are all done with watercolor. These were done for a trade. watercolor painting Virginia Spencer vmrs ATC

This is also a watercolor but is a little bigger at 7×4 inches.

Here’s a warmer watercolor,  also a miniature at 4×6 inches.

And here’s a watercolor of a leaf and acorn. I think this one was 5×4 inches.

Me me me me me!!

I recently participated in an art trading card (ATC) project.

The theme was “All About Me”

That’s right. Me me me me me..

The cards are all 2.5 by 3.5 inches and painted with acrylic.

This one is a still life of flowers. I love flowers.

I also love tea and grow my own mint.

These art deco bottles belonged to my grandmother.

One of my oldest and dearest friends. His name is Spot and we went on many an adventure together.

My breakfast, blueberries and peanut butter on a waffle. That’s right, I eat that.

My favorite color of nail polish, green!

This is what a squirrel looks when it scratches its back on a peanut shell.

Sexy, non?

Apparently he became itchy while trying to steal seeds from the bird feeder. The local birds were not all that thrilled.

Run, little squirrel! Run!

It’s okay, he’s safe, that was from February. 

Spring is definitely in the air here.

The palette came out better than the painting!

And at the drawing board. This is ink, 10x 3 inches. I’m debating on whether or not to color it in.
