I had a productive day yesterday. We had a Watercolor Society of Indiana Board meeting and I presented the status of our new Scholarship program. I have received applications from 11 applicants and I think this is really wonderful for the first year. The applications are full of creativity, technical skill and innovation. I LOVE working with activities that help young people grow.

I finished my painting of apple blossoms (actually crabapple blossoms to be transparent – isn’t that the current fad word?) and it is in the “living with it” phase. I am very happy with it at this point and can’t immediately see anything I want to improve but…you never know.

Apple Blossoms, 140# Arches Paper, Transparent Watercolor, 5" X 8"

I worked from two really good digital photos taken in my yard. I like the nostalgic feel of the painting. Today I will be out in the neighborhood walking the critters and taking photos of the dogwood that are in glorious bloom. I hope you have sunshine and enjoy a beautiful day my friends.

    I really like this work – I love how you take us from a blue in one corner to yellow in the opposite – by a beautiful route – good watercolour
