When you wish upon a watercolor painting

For the past couple of weeks I have been working on trying to make a few watercolor paintings that could
easily be made into art prints and greeting cards. I have also been on a kick making art that includes stars and the night sky, so naturally the man in the moon popped into my mind and this was the result!

Hope you enjoy it :)

Persian Cat Watercolor Painting

This new watercolor goes along with the theme of my owl expressions painting that I posted last week.
I think the Persian cats are so cute, and it was a lost of fun to paint the range of expressions on each one.

I hope you enjoy it!

This past week we took a trip from Florida back to Texas to be in our sister's wedding. It was a lot of fun and really good to see the family again, since we have not seen them since January when we moved.

We got home this past Sunday, and then on Monday night I was going about my nightly routine when I heard something. It was a cat meowing outside our house...but not the typical cat fight noises one normally hears at night...this one sounded like it was crying...

So I walked out our front door to inspect...

And here is the result -

A new member of the family named Ziggy :)

Black Bear Watercolor Painting

A new watercolor and gouache painting of a lumbering black bear.
I like to venture out of my normal routine and try painting a new animal
every once and awhile, since most of the subject matter in my art are birds.

I really enjoyed painting this bear, I hope you like him!

The human kite...almost!

For the past 2 weeks my husband Matthew and I have started to run together to be more healthy. 
We have a park right next to our neighborhood that has a lot of trails and sports fields
which makes it a great place to jog every other day.

Today was one of our running days and so we started making our way to the park, (we walk there for our warm-up) and almost got knocked off our feet by a storm that is blowing through Florida!
I have run in the rain before plenty of times, but I thought the wind was going to blow the contact lenses straight out of my eyes!

Haha, anyway it was crazy but a lot of fun...I can only imagine what it is going to be like when we experience our first hurricane.

Hope you are having a great day!

Owl Expressions - An Original Watercolor Painting

Hi there!

Woohoo! I managed to get another watercolor finished the other day.
This one is a combination of watercolors and gouache on cold press watercolor paper.
I was inspired to make this owl painting for one because they are so darn cute, and 
also because owlets have so many different funny expressions. Anyway I hope you enjoy it!
