I've been in Louisiana since the first week of March to take care of my mom following knee replacement, so I'm been out of the artist community loop. But now I'm back home and enjoying my own quiet time in my studio during this Stay at Home mandate.
Besides the usual fixing things around the house, cleaning and organizing closets, and other mundane tasks, I try to paint something or do something art related every day.
I haven't painted in a while, so as a warmup have started doing little 5x7 paintings for fun.
Here are two I finished this week:
|This one is watercolor on Yupo paper, a plastic paper.|
|This one is of my favorite view of Pikes Peak through Garden of the Gods. |
It is watercolor on Fabriano Artistico hot pressed paper.
The plan is to mat each of these "Little Gems" paintings in a white 8x10 mat in a plastic sleeve, frame-ready. Stay tuned for more painting fun.
