First Lilies

First Lilies
Watercolor and pencil
5 x 8 inches


At some point in the future, I will look back on these past 12 or so months and think... I don't know what I'll think in the future! But right now, I think, "Uncle, already!"

Though I've been quite ill the past week or two, I've been settling into some sketchbooks and enjoying my gardens. I have barely pulled a weed this year. Six years of trial and error with perennial plantings and hardy annual survivors have produced gardens with a life of their own. I'm sure that I'm in for a few surprises!

I'm hard at work on the launch of my signature online course, so my next series of larger paintings must hang out in the planning stages for a while. I like confining my work to the books for now.

So far, I have three books going. I'll write more about them in the next week or so. I haven't shown work in one watercolor book — the one set out on my drawing table — but will soon. It's an alternate universe to these watercolor sketches in the moleskine book that keeps me company in the yard.
