Its 2020 and it’s in the middle of the Coronavirus pandemic, we have been ordered by our Governor to “Stay Home & Stay Healthy”. Not only did this mean quite a bit of change for my work life, but changes in my free time and my daily commitments. This was not an easy change, I struggled with feeling like I couldn’t go places and do things that I wanted to do. I struggled with being home for weeks on end and only seeing my husband and parents (who live next door.)
But this time was also a blessing for me! It gave me time that I had not had in quite a while to explore art again. Which lead me to brush pens and then to watercolors that I have had sitting around for years!
I started watching videos online about how to watercolor, the best paint and brushes to buy. Then I started trying out the techniques I had seen online. My first though was, I am not sure why I am trying this, I have never liked watercolors, nor was I ever any good at it. But my first few brush strokes after watching some videos were rather good. So, I started branching out, finding ideas to paint and just taking a stab at it! Success!
I was able to complete a few very small paintings and then move right into some larger compositions. I invested in some good watercolor paper and off I went!
Here are some of most recent successful paintings. You can purchase prints of these paintings on Fine Art America or on products at Zazzle.com.
