6 x 6 watercolor on 140 lb Arches paper $55.00 unframed
Yesterday, I judged some grade school paintings 1st - 8th. They were all so wonderful and I had a difficult time choosing. There were obvious pieces that I thought were more well constructed, but there were some that were simply personality. That is what I decided my tomatoes were. Personality! They reminded me of musical notes with their angular stems and bright color.

In Colorado Springs, there are so many places to explore, photograph and paint. My rendition of the Garden of the Gods, is steep. I have witnessed people riding their bikes in and around the rockyness of this place. I have trouble keeping my two feet from stumbling.

A mommie with golden curly hair and a child with shiny dark hair embracing and hugging. In life, time goes by quickly. These moments can never be retrieved, but they can be recorded.
Hug your children. Give them positive vibes. Create a safe environment for them.

Skimming the Waters" from the 2009 CS ballon fest, Colorado Springs, Colorado. Some of the balloonists lower their balloons and just skim the waters to give onlookers a treat. Thousands of people have awakened early in the morning, pulled on their warm clothes, grabbed their children and of course their cameras,and a snack and if it is not a windy day, the balloonists are given the okay to rise. With a whoosh of hot air they are up up up and away in their beautiful balloons. It is a "heavenly",sight and a great way to spend a couple of hours for free! Bring your lawn chairs and a friend or two for a spectacular event in the park.

A coolish feeling on the beach with a bit of sun beginning to rise. The morning beach weather can be very breezy and chilly before old sol wakes everyone up. It's a great time to take your big dog for a brisk walk and wear him out so you can go home, have your morning coffee and think about your workday. Or not.

This is done in a watercolor style, all wet and washy and
fun. I added lime greens, buttercup yellow, lavender, a few
touches of coral and brilliant blue colors together on a wet
canvas and using my spray bottle letting it float and do its
own thing with just a few odd touches, it looks pretty in
every direction. Does it say springtime to you?
