Country Roses Progress

I haven't made much progress this week, and I probably won't until the weekend. This is where I am now:

This painting is turning out to be more difficult than I thought it would be, or even than it should be. I didn't realize, until after I painted the background, that I drew the picture on the wrong side of the watercolor paper-- rookie mistake. The paint just doesn't move, blend, and lift as well as it does when painting on the right side of the paper. Needless to say, it's quite frustrating.

Doodles from my Journal

I've been doodling for a couple of days now and I've really enjoyed it. It sure helps pass the time at work and I like to see what I come up with. Here are a few pictures from my art journal. They will all eventually be painted.

Art Journal: Dandelions

dandelion doodle:

This doodle was inspired by a dandelion I saw growing in the middle of a bunch of rocks. I was going to the hospital to visit my grandmother with my mom. On our way in, I saw the dandelion and asked my mom if she thought I should pick it for my grandma, as a joke, of course. She didn't think it was very funny, so I left the dandelion where it was.

I don't mind dandelions. I like the name and they're like little balls of sunshine. Plus, they give you wishes. It's hard for me to call them weeds.
