Someday I would like to live where I can have a lemon tree growing in my yard. Since I live in the midwest that isn't going to be anytime soon. In the meantime I'll just have to enjoy them in one of my favorite ways-in my iced tea!

Strawberry Bowl

Ooh, strawberries! I remember picking them at the farm when I was small and eating so many of the sweet delicious berries I ended up with hives! I try to restrain myself now, but there is nothing like a bowlful of just picked strawberries maybe with a little whipped cream? What is your favorite way to eat them?

Day 25_30 Paintings in 30 Days

Indiana Field #8
watercolor
Jean M. Canavan

One more barn! Which one is your favorite? After this, I am moving on to different subjects for my next few paintings. Maybe a few detail paintings for some large paintings that I have in mind to start working on! I have a few venues I'll be needing work for and rather quickly! I'd better get painting!

Indiana Field#5

So, I missed a few days-had a lovely visit out east with friends and couldn't figure out how to post my photos from my iPad. ugh. Oh well, you'll get to see them now that I am home.
Now I have a few paintings from a recent visit to my son and his beautiful family. The paintings are inspired by small watercolor sketches I did on the drive home. I do love barns and the Indiana fields were my favorite shade of yellow!

Busy weekend, so here I am posting the past 2 days at once. I have a series of flag photos that I have been wanting to paint for awhile. This is turning out to be a good way to see which I like. Maybe I'll do a large one when I figure out my favorite.
Not sure about this palette-I'm having difficulty getting a nice grey-but I am still going to try a little more. I'm determined to make it do what I want! We'll see if that happens!
