The one thing that has remained a constant is my love for watercolors. I am not so great at photographing art so I hope you can get a good idea of the colors in the following paintings. The following 3 pictures were painted by a family friend over 50 years ago. They were in the home I grew up in and I always admired them. About 25 years ago they made their way to my home. I think what I love about these paintings is that the artist didn't color inside the lines.
The tulip watercolor below was in my bedroom until last May when I fell in love with another watercolor. I tried to sell the tulip but haven't had any luck, so now I am trying to find 'her' a new home in my home.
While I was on the Sunshine Coast in British Columbia I visited the studio of one of my favorite artists, Anita Lindblom of Blue Dot Art Studio and bought the following watercolor...so the tulip picture was out. Anita is a very talented painter and potter. Her studio is in a building on the same land as her home over looking the water (Pacific Ocean). I love the colors in the watercolor Anita painted as they are also in one of the quilts that is on my bed.
