 So far this year, I've been enjoying painting with watercolors (mostly) but sometimes acrylic. I've been using pins from Pinterest for ideas and for a little something different.

This is a card - it's supposed to be a path through lavender. Does it come through?

I had a lot of left over brown one day. This is a dock and water. I might paint some flip-flops on the dock.

This is the first new one. I've always wanted to paint mountains. But I didn't read the directions all the way through first and therefore it's not perfect. But it looks pretty good. 

This was something wildly different for me. 

Extra paint from the previous painting turned into this Valentine.

Starry Night with trees. I loved how the stars came out.

Combo mountain and stars painting. 

Last weekend's painting from a photo of a place in New Hampshire we traveled to last year. 

This one was updated with grass on the hill, the tree, and the swing. Looking at it now, the tree looks a little lonely. 

This one was for a paint night workshop for the library.  It was a fun night. 

And that's what I've been working on while the world is still on fire. Each piece from start to finish takes about an hour. Drying happens during that time. The paper pieces are 7 by 5 inches. I took a few classes in high school and college, but I've never really worked much with watercolors. I thought I didn't like them. And then I learned a little patience goes a long way!
