Happy Friday and weekend Everyone!

Here is a recent water lily I photographed at Longwood Gardens in Pennsylvania.  It started raining and I loved photographing the drops falling in the water.  Lucky for me I had a umbrella.  Have a wonderful Friday!  Rainy Water Lily and other photographs like this can also be seen by following my other instagram account dedicated to my love for butterflies, dragonflies and flowers @butterflies_dragonflies_Flowrs.  Prints are also available by clicking here.

A Narrow-Banded Owl Butterfly – Happy Sunday!

A Narrow-Banded Owl Butterfly photograph I took yesterday.  He caught my eye immediately hanging on a tent.  I couldn’t get over the contrast in colors with the blues and the browns. They never cease to amaze me!

Art Journal Sunday

Completed another portrait in my art journal a few days ago.  I’ve really been working on my drawing, proportions and also my watercolor painting of faces and that was this girls only purpose.  The techniques I learned for this girl are new for me and challenging but closer to what I have been chasing and where I want to go .  Watercolors are so challenging but so amazing to me.  You can do so many different things and different techniques and I am enjoying learning and painting and discovering what I can do with them.  I have already drawn a few more since learning these new skills and will continue to paint and stay here.  I feel comfortable here and going to stay here awhile.

WIP – Art Jounal Work In Progress

My current work in progress.  I have been learning new techniques and can’t seem to let go of that at the moment.  That is what is going into my current work.  There are quite a few drawings not portrait related that I want to paint but am stuck on this at the moment. It’s very rewarding to see myself get closer to what I am after.  I wish I could just let certain things go and not make it so hard but am also learning that this quest and desire to reach for things makes me grow.  This is all watercolor at the moment and I have been challenging myself to do more of this recently.
