Made Some Progress Today 8/13:
              Step by step. I'm beginning to make progress on my newest "Runner" watercolor. I had originally planned to leave the background empty. But then I realized that the green made the other colors pop.

Painting Theresa Day Two 8/11:
      
I stated painting on my newest watercolor "Runner" this morning. a drawing for a new watercolor this morning.  Theresa was a student of mine back in the 80's. I have not decided how to deal with the background yet - but. I know I want to include lots of bright colors and somehow show the reflections on her skin.

Painting Theresa 8/10:
             I stated a drawing for a new watercolor this morning - It's from a photo that's not mine - I did ask permission - the subject, Theresa Reyes-Cummings was a student of mine in the seventh grade. As Theresa reminded me - she got plastered in middle school, now she gets painted. To be clear my art students cast various parts of her in class later to assemble her whole body for an art show. It's the colorful outfit and the reflection off her skin that makes this painting a real challenge.

Blossom All Worn Out 8/7:
             I took Blossom to the groomer this morning. She is beautiful, but all worn out. I guess it takes a lot out of a lady to get beautiful. I took all the blame for not having her cut way back - her "Mother" is not happy with me.



...




Watercolor Meeting 8/6:
             Fantastic watercolor meeting yesterday morning - a dozen new members introduced themselves and presented their work which was quite impressive. I hope each of them enter our exhibitions - I included a few samples below.




...




Some Progress 8/5:
             Yesterday, I got a good start on my new watercolor "Taos Sax". I need to remove the liquid mask before I continue.


...




NM State Fair 8/4:
             After I framed "Holy Mudder" - I decided to enter it into the NM State Fair - I'll still be able to enter it into WFWS after the fair. I'm entering two other smaller paintings as well. I'll price "Holy Mudder" high because I want to enter it into WFWS later. I'll price the others to sell.



.......





Western Fed 8/3:
             Here are the three watercolors I'm entering into WFWS-43 in Southern Arizona - the exhibit will be in May of 2018 - Wish me luck.


...




New Watercolor Started 8/2:
             I did a drawing for a new watercolor. The subject is a street musician up in Taos, New Mexico. I'm working from photos I took back in June when I was at the Sagebrush Inn.
