summer bliss ~

hello sweets! 

today i'm sharing some of my new watercolor sketches. i've so enjoyed our beautiful, cool and bright, early summer mornings ~ ahh... how i love sweet peas!  and it just so happened that a few were blooming in the back alley next to our fence.  each morning before work, just when the sun would light them up so pretty, i would go out with camera in hand and snap a few pics.   this is how it translated into my watercolor sketchbook:

and some sunflowers also went into my moleskine watercolor journal.   i just processed this photo through a new app from rhonna designs.  {i'm so amazed at this creative technology}

it's all part of my summer of sheer bliss ~ those still summer mornings on our patio... nothing but blue sky, sunshine, and paint! you may notice on the table is a little travel kit of french watercolors, this brand is 'sennelier' {spendy and worth it}, i was happy to get them on a great sale at 40% with free shipping at http://dickblick.com several months ago, when i took a junelle jacobsen {and now a summer one} online class.  such sweet inspiration... i love it!!!!


oh, and a little devotional time, too, this particular day from Oswald Chambers, which said in part,   "... but allow God to be as creative and original with others as he was with you"  you can tell how much of it struck me as i've highlighted almost the entire thing!!
what beautiful things to learn, as i contemplate, pray, play, and enJoy.

and then some favorite words, illustrated on  9" x12"  140 lb. quality watercolor paper, and totally frameable, original art. here they are before i added more details and they are now newly listed the shop!





soli deo gloria!
abundantly and more.

I love your watercolors! They are blissful!
I tried to get sweet peas going a couple of times and didn't succeed. I find them so pretty too.

It looks like a fun course. I'm starting one with Alicia Burke tomorrow.
