nature study watercolor




I got the above little vase for my brushes. It is from Anthropologie and came all the way from beautiful Portugal.

South Florida is rainy today, as though offering a welcome to the fall season. I love rainy days. I love the smell of wet dirt, the sight of an overcast sky, and the wind blowing. It reminds me how amazing is our Earth.

Enjoy your Sunday!

I love your flowers. Beautiful! Wow, your vase is awesome. Ah Portugal. My Grandmother's parents were from Portugal. Yes, some day I would love to go there and to Spain. Antropologie? I think I may go to the site and check out those beautiful vases. Nice post.

I am a 'wind blowing' kinda gal - it's good 'thinking weather' and as my daughter said to me the other day ... you can't have the rainbow without the rain.

Love the painting - really nice one

I love that type of weather in the fall. Open up all the windows and let the air it. xo

Lovely vase. I hate rainy days but I respect them for replenishing the earth. I think I'd love rainy days more if I got to stay home from work and snuggle up on the couch with a good book and some hot cocoa:) Beautiful:)

Your vase it just perfect and I love your art! It looks like I could reach out and touch it...it's so real! Enjoy your week!

I simply love this art of yours. Love the color,the structure, everything about this flower. I am very fond of botanical paintings and right now, I am doing a fabric paint of some plants/flowers on a wall hanging.
Keep up the good work !
