Last week I destroyed 2 paintings..This week I tried to be patient..It is hard to paint while running after the kids, but I managed it!! The lines may be skewed because I took the pictures from a weird camera angle..The real paintings are more perspectively correct..

This weekend I spent a good amount of time on two paintings..Both were going great. However, right at the end, the final touches, both were destroyed..I did have some "distractions" which I attribute to this disaster!! My advise: if you are not in the mood or getting tired or distracted, leave the Watercolor alone!! Come back the next day with a fresh heart and finish the job!!

I am working on a few paintings for our new medical center. We'll be moving in November, but I have to submit them before the end of this month. This is the first one. I got the picture from the internet. The sky in the picture was completely blue, so I created the clouds. Also, the picture had a small red shed and a white picket fence. I eliminated them as I thought they would create a compositional imbalance. I am trying to convey a sense of early spring, where the winter clouds are still lurking around, but the sun bravely shines and tries to kill the chill in the air..
