It's always so hard to get a good picture of these little things, because there are intricacies and textures in the watercolor that just don't come out in the photo at that size. The good part is that if a client likes a piece in the photo, they'll LOVE it in person. I really love how this one came out!

Finished my latest big canvas! If this looks familiar, it is! I was asked to paint a large version of a similar smaller painting I have listed. This will be a focal point in a room with navy and gold decor.

So excited about this big ol' canvas (30x48"), with its new canvas smell! It'll be a commissioned larger version of one of my current for sale paintings.

But first I have to prep the canvas. Watercolor isn't normally used on regular canvas because acrylic prepped canvas is not absorbent and the paint and water just float all over the surface.

I'm using a special watercolor ground, which I paint on and let cure to create an absorbent layer that'll take the paint much better. It's a different feel from paper and not as workable as the ground tends to lift, but it's fun. Even the baby wants to join in 😁. Can't wait to show you my progress!

She said yes!! This ring represents an inside joke for this beautiful London couple, and commissioned it to use to propose to his love! He even made the custom wood box for it. Congrats you two and may you live happily ever after!

Jupiter and moon earrings. I love making earrings that are clearly a set, yet not the same.

Cute little poppies in watercolor and ink, set into stud earrings. I even made some California golden poppies to go with the quail.

No detailing with a black pen on this one like I usually do. It's a softer, looser style than my normal house portraits, which are still not super rigid but more illustrated feeling. 4x6 inches. What do you think?

Just got back from a gorgeous wedding in California, where the state bird is this quaint little quail. This is listed now, and stay tuned for a sale that may or may not be happening tomorrow! 🤫😉

Expect to see Pantone's color of the year in fashion, home decor and more throughout 2019!
What should I paint with this color? A big flow painting? Tiny earrings? What do you think of this color?

And now for something completely different... i used food coloring to paint on fondant to make watercolor cookies today. It was fun to experiment and it'll take some more practice to figure out the best technique
