June was moving fast and I was still committed to creating daily paintings in my tiny watercolor sketchbook. Oh yes, there were some days when I seriously considered grabbing my pen or pencil, even possibly giving up completely but then I thought about why challenges exist.
If it was easy it wouldn’t be a challenge!
… and so the paint only challenge rolled on.
I haven’t seen any butterflies with this coloration but I loved painting her.
It was late and I had not found my inspiration during the day so these metallic horses became my muses.
Hummingbird first and the bee balm the next day. They’re always together in my garden!
Another busy day but there’s always a subject lurking in the mirror.
Much more time for this broken seashell. This really shows how lovely the watercolor blends and granulates on this paper.
I have struggled for a long while to paint my cats. Here’s our smaller girl.
Barred Owl at VINS, Vermont Institute of Natural Science, our local raptor rehab center.
By this time I could see the finish line. I’ll post the final bunch on Monday. See you then.
