Plein Air

Pile of paper
Painting outside today
My faithful companion
It was such a beautiful morning that my faithful companion & I grabbed the watercolors and went outside for some plein air painting in the back yard
while listening to Peter Gabriel's 'New Blood'.

I wish I could sit outside too, draw, and especially hear Peter Gabriels great songs. Unfortunately I can not paint so great ;-)

How do you always manage to make cacti look sweet and beautiful. Turbo also looks sweet and beautiful, does he have hidden herding talents? Get him rounding up dangerous things and kicking them out, the scorpion must have been very scarey!! Hope all is well now. Lovely painting, I'm enjoying my print, thank-you!! :)

Oh,no fun at all dealing with scorpions. We have them here in the intermountain west, but until recently they were the ones whose sting was no more harmful than a bee. Now we have the Sonoran desert variety that can be deadly...imported with desert cacti, saguaro cacti for landscaping...the scorpions were hitchhikers.

Would you share the pattern for the crocheted rock covering? Or tell me where to buy the pattern.

Geninne, this is lovely. I am always lost in digital art, you remind me to get back to painting and creating by hand first.

Hello Geneinne. I love your work. I am a huge fan. I wanted to ask you about the paper you use. I see you have smaller handmade paper in this post and wondered where you found it. Currently I'm using "Fluid" watercolor paper. I think it's new. It's in the block form. I found a 4x8 block and love the unusual size. Thanks again! You are an inspiration. -Jessie

Thank you for pictures of Turbo. I've missed seeing him on your blog.

I love anything to do with Paris (including your latest painting). I believe that is a not-so-hidden request for a portrait in the next to last photo.

Hi! I have just started following your blog and am really enjoying seeing your artwork. I like your clever drawing in your blog header - combining sewing and watercolor, two of my favorite things!

Your border collie is super cute! I have been thinking of getting one some day when my daughter gets a bit older.

Thanks for sharing your beautiful work and inspiring those of us who follow your blog!!
