Beginnings in watercolor

August 26, 2017

As I prepare for my first exhibition, I thought I would share a few of the first paintings that I made.  I had purchased a beautiful Moleskin watercolor notebook before I even started painting!  For months I deliberated about what to paint in it, it was so special. Finally I landed on a project:  painting some of my prized possessions.  Here are some of my favorites.

 This is a little vase I bought on vacation in Brattleboro, Vermont while visiting my brother.

 Another little vase, this one belonged to my Great Grandmother

This is a goofy little lusterware flower frog from my collection of pottery flower frogs.  It's about 3" high. 

This little lady is a small pitcher.  I saw her while on vacation in Cape May one year but, trying not to accumulate things, I left her behind at the antique store.  A year later, I would not make that mistake again!

 

I love to make paintings like these.  They are a great exercise in looking closely and also allow me to spend time with belongings that I cherish.
