my year in painting

My year in painting, 
which I consider a big achievement since I shattered my right shoulder blade in 11/16.

At that time, in so much pain, I was worried I would not regain total movement in my right arm.  
I worked hard at my physical therapy and started painting again in February 2017. 

Learning to paint upright on an easel enabled me to work on my watercolors again.
I am very grateful.

We've had so much fun painting with alcohol inks!
The colors are vibrant and the effects are very cool.
Available in the shop.

finally, a post

Wow, it's been months since I posted!
We had a busy summer/fall of art shows, 5 in all.
Now I'm back to working on the Etsy shop and listing some new items:

Amanda and I have had fun with these mini canvas paintings, as well as alcohol ink.
More to follow.

Cherries in Bowl

It's so good to be back to painting!  This is my newest one.  
The shiny cherries were so much fun to paint and I just love painting bowl designs.  
I must have been a china decorator in another life.
