100 Painting Yea yea Yea yea!!!!

Just thought I was getting close to painting 100 paintings since I started blogging, February 26, 2007. I can't believe I made it!!!!!! I'm going to celebrate and go to the BEACH today!!!!!!!

Maine Boats Watercolor

11 x 14.5 on Watercolor Paper
I worked on this one yesterday & this morning. My students at the Beach Art Center wanted to do a landscape, but as most of them know I HATE landscape. So this was a compromise! It seems a little blue, but watercolors are soooooo hard to photograph. The water and the rocks are more gray.

White cup with Tomato Slice

6x6 on Gesso Board
I painted this one at the St. Pete Artist Market on Saturday, the first one I painted was tomatoes slices on green, but the wind blew and it ended up in the dirt. I did scrape some of it off, so maybe later today I can salvage it. I just love the Gessoed Board, you can move paint around and see the brush strokes.........I think this surface maybe my favorite.
