Light on My Rose

I actually had a moment last week to paint. It was one of the days we decided to take a time out from swimming and going to the beach. I looked through my photos and found this one.  It showed one of my roses with lots of sunlight on it.  I really liked the photo so I gave this one a try.  I really don't know the name of this rose since when we moved here I found it out back in the jungle.  I moved it to the front yard and it has thrived.  Only bad thing is the deer love it as much as I do.  I hope it brings some joy to everyone.

Lost and Found Pumpkins


 For the last week and until July 3rd I have my two lovely granddaughters Katie and Haley staying with us. So my painting time is limited. However I did paint this before they came. 
This was painted for the lost/found edges project challenge at with the beautiful reference photo provided Jaytee.
  I really liked painting these pumpkins and very happy with the colors. This one has more lost edges than found. This was a great challenge to participate in , I  learned a lot.   Enjoy hearing from all of you on this painting done in watercolors on Arches 140 rough paper.  Thanks again everyone for viewing.

A Lovely Storefront

     I haven't posted in here in quite a while. This is my latest watercolor.  It is from my Painting Friends Friday Foto Forum.  I want to thank Lil for sharing her photo with us.  A sort of challenge for me since I haven't painted buildings in a very long time.   I hope everyone enjoys looking at this.  Please feel free to comment, love what everyone is thinking.
