Clean Palette Club

I have been a member of the clean palette club far too long.

Everyday life sometimes gets in the way of creativity.  Many artists have struggled with this problem and it can be caused by many different issues.  Sometimes it is artist's block.  Sometimes it is just finding the time.  I have had a hectic schedule this past year.  House renovation projects have consumed a great deal of my free time.

The cooler weather will soon be upon us or supposedly on its way, it was 61 degrees today in upstate New York!  This will help slow down the outdoor fix it projects and will hopefully allow more time for me to paint watercolor paintings instead of walls, siding and fences.

Okay, I do love to have a clean palette every time I start to paint.  I try to clean my palette when I am done painting for the day.  But now it needs to get dirty!  I have placed my clean palette on my studio table.  It's ready to go!

May Day Surprise

Original Watercolor Painting

Did you know today is May Day?

May Day is the day your are supposed to surprise someone special with flowers.  Gather up some flowers into a pretty little bouquet.  Leave them on the front door step, ring the doorbell and run away!

I'm hoping my sweetheart will leave flowers for me today.

Dusting Off the Cobwebs

I think it's time to wake up this sleepy blog and bring it back to life!

What do you think?

Are you up for more ramblings, posts, etc. on watercolor painting tips & tricks and other silly things that may come to mind?

This painting was from an abstract painting class I taught a few years back.  It's filled with a number of watercolor tricks.  It gives me a few ideas I can share in upcoming posts.
