This is my project for the week. I finished it this afternoon, and really enjoyed this one. It is on 300lb. Arches, and is 22x30 inches. Once again, a limited palette of pthalo blue, rose madder, and cad yellow med.

It's great!
Nice colors and good range of values.

I wish my own watercolor work came out this good. :)

Thanks, folks! Actually, I'm kind of stunned. This sold about two hours after I posted it on my blog. When things sell, I feel like I'm parting with a beloved child! LOL, I know, I'm weird. But it feels good to be selling now and then.

Gail, I'm tickled that you're reading the blog. I'm hoping I can keep it up when I go back to school next week.
