She was born with a huge hole in her heart and other complications..So last November she had open heart surgery and has been recovering every since then.... She is doing well... and is a little girl full of Joy .
We celebrate with great thanksgiving to God and for the many people that prayed for her these last 6 mos...
This is the painting I did today for her room...

Flowers

Painting everyday is the discipline , and the road to better painting.. I have my paints out on my desk... and I try to do something small everyday... I can paint while talking on the phone... or even answering messages on the computer.. I just try to keep the brush going everyday...

Even if I don't paint a winner..or a big one.. at least I fill my journal with ideas.. and exercises...
I also get books out of the Library on a regular bases, books on watercolor and technique in painting.... I found one this time that I really got so much from it.
Winning with Watercolour, by Trevor Waugh .. absolutely great! I love the way he uses the medium.. and his book is so helpful .... I love his flowers... this was a sketch done after reading how he does his roses...
He has a web site also.. just Google his name... you will enjoy his work!

Just Beeing

Very Tired tonight, after watching the Basket Ball game last night, then getting up really early, and working all day... but wanted to pick up my brush and relax... so Bees was on my mind...
Thought I would bone up on Bees... getting ready to do some flower
paintings.. they should always include someone moving about, whether a bird, or a bee..
it was fun ...Just Beeing an artist tonight :)

Have a great day
