Today we painted A bell pepper, white onion, and potatoes
We used watercolor pencils to sketch out first. The watercolor pencils will blend well with most paints. We used #ArtistLoft Crimson Red, Viridian Green, Yellow Ochre and #Premium Chinese White , round soft watercolor brush, and watercolor pad 6×6.
When I did this in my sketchbook I decided I wanted to do it on canvas so I could frame it.
This is #Watercolor on canvas pad textured 12 × 16 .
After the paint dried I went in with a #BlackSharpie to bring out more details.
Since May seems to be Mermaid month its the perfect setting.

Yesterday I woke up feeling OK but as the day progressed I came to realize how we as humans are programmed and mentally conditioned for these holidays. Even if you chose not to be involved there will always be someone who will wish you a “Happy” what ever the holiday is.
Why does everyone assume you spent time with family or friends. Why do they assume you attended a church service.
These holidays are man made and the only profit is retail sales with people feeling guilty so they buy gifts.
So as I asked the question “What happen yesterday” I respond with nothing happen it was just another day.
Thanks for following and supporting the blog. Join us on Periscope for #ArtistMotivationalMonday 11am PST.
Its here the count down for the new year has started. People are heading to different places to be ready for the celebration of the new year. Have you ever thought that maybe you are the celebration. You and your creative energy are a celebration every time you step into a room.
2017 has been a great year, and as we close it out with the last blog of the year we want to thank everyone for their support of this blog. You have followed, you have liked and shared and we are so grateful for your presents.
We are looking forward to what 2018 will manifest.
When I was doing interior design specializing on accessories it was so simple to change the look of any room for the client with pillows, custom mirrors, lamps, and matted and framed art.
You can pull one color from the room and work the room around it. The client was always happy with the results.
We have added our art on Decor Pillows so not only can you get the art but also have it added to other beautiful items to compliment any room.
There are always new people who join us who may not be aware of our art. Just click on the link and you can find out what we have done over time. If you have questions about any art piece reach out to us. Art makes a wonderful gift a lasting gift.
We had the pleasure of attending the grand opening of a new gallery. The Theshold Art Gallery is located in Redlands, California. It is always so inspiring when someone makes their dream come true. We met some amazing artist Lynn Richards, Cindy Rinne and Aeron Brown.
It was an amazing night.
