Dahlia

I finished my little 7×5 watercolor painting today.  I have decided to paint on a larger format now for a while.  At least 8×10 or larger.  Small paintings can get frustrating, because they are tedious due to such small detail.  When you see the miniature paintings done by any artist, know that they were difficult to paint.
I haven’t yet decided on a photo for my next painting.  My daughter sent me a few photos, maybe I will feel inspired to paint one.
I use a Panasonic DMC-ZS1 to capture the images of my paintings.  I have been very happy with it until today.  For some reason, my computer does not see the camera anymore.  We have tried multiple things to remedy this, to no avail.  I will be digging out my old Olympus C-3000 camera until I can get this figured out.  The image here was scanned using my Cannon CannoScan-4400F.

Painting Away

 
I have been painting for a little while.  But, looking out the window seems to be more of what I have been doing.  As you can see, the birds are having a play day at the feeder. The jays are usually the first to find the food when I put it out.  They like the sunflower seeds as do the doves.  The smaller birds like the seed up in the statue’s skirt.  My cat recently died, so they don’t have to be as cautious as they used to! 

And this is how my painting is coming along.  I photographed the dahlias some time ago while on a camping trip.  Dahlias are so beautiful, don’t you think?  My studio is a little bit chilly this time of year, so I had to quit for a bit.  I hope to finish this painting in the next day or two.
