'The Sunny Spot'
8" x 10" watercolor on Aquaboard
Sunlight on baby skin is one of the most beautiful things I've ever seen. :)
A few years ago I spent an afternoon outside on a white puffy blanket with my baby, photographing him from every angle. I loved how he perched underneath his one chubby leg and looked so intently at everything around him. He had such a serious face. He was crawling at this age, but would not leave the borders of the blanket for fear of touching that dreaded, spiky grass.
And this painting has sealed the deal for how I feel about working with Aquaboard. It's tricky at first and I'm still getting used to it, but I keep looking at this painting's glossy surface (I spray varnished it so I can frame it without glass) and I just LOVE how bright the colors are and that they're right there in front of me. I have another painting planned for this Aquaboard that I'm about ready to start soon.
And I had a completely wonderful time with my husband on our little anniversary (twelve years of marriage WOOT!) getaway, and my computer is all better now thanks to the hard work of some good friends. HUZZAH!!
Thanks so much to all of you for your well wishes and always kind and generous comments, sometimes I don't know what I'd do without all my great bloggy friends. :))
See you soon everybody. :))
