I'm on a watercolor group where we share our steps (work in progress) to help other artists out. If you'd like to see the work in progress, you can click here

This is REALLY LARGE for a watercolor. It's 20"x40". Watercolor on arches watercolor board.

I did this painting this time, just because I felt like doing it. I'd been pressuring myself to work on show pieces and I wasn't doing as well. I decided to cut myself some slack and I enjoyed the process much better. I've also decided to start working on some pieces for a book I want to do. It may or may not ever happen, who knows but I'll share some of the pieces as I go.

OMG this is just unbelievably beautiful, you are extremely talented!!

To top it off that it is watercolors as well, which only basing on my very amateur experience, is extremely hard to work with for detail, those owls and aspen and deer are just beautiful.

You should if you don't already, show your work in galleries. I don't think I have seen such detail like that before and I see a lot of work here in my neck of the woods.

They are! The transparency of watercolor is what makes it both pretty, and difficult. But it's a fun challenge.


Thank you for all the compliments, you're very kind!

I really love the deer. More than the aspens, although those are wonderful as well. Have you thought about painting horses? People pay an arm and a leg for horse portraits.

Georgiapea - I haven't done any large florals, maybe down the road.

Maite - I had someone request a horse around christmas but they didn't follow through. I'm pretty sure I could do it. I did my sister's boxer and you could tell it was her. My BIL thought it was a photo. LOL.

Awesome... you are so talented, thank you so much for sharing them with us. I was wondering - how do you feel when you are painting ? When you have finished a painting, how does that make you feel inside ? I am pretty sure I know the answers, but I am curious as to how this makes you feel. thanks so much
