Gaxiola House: Part 2

I was never proud of the first painting I made for Lora.  It was driving me crazy.  Knowing I would be in Birmingham shortly, I created another one.  This one, I am pleased with!

Rebecca's Watercolor

Today I finished yet another house watercolor.  This one is for a college friend who found my latest watercolor on Instagram.  I am keeping it hush hush because it is a surprise for a mutual friend...a Christmas surprise.  So no Instagram or Facebook.  BUT I think (hope) this is safe.

Scarbrough House

It remains a secret to my Dad (I hope this doesn't blow it) but I finished a watercolor of my parent's house in Columbus.  I've been meaning to do it for awhile and finally found a great picture from my computer i took a few years back.  I am pleased.  Mom, it will be shipped soon.  I am testing out a couple techniques on it (like how to flatten it).

I love this house so much I had my wedding reception there.  I left for my honeymoon on those steps!

This might be my favorite moment from the reception and one of my favorite pictures to go along with it!

Gaxiola House

I told Lora I would practice on her house.  And practice I did.  Watercolor challenges me!

House Watercolor

I present to you my first painting since the marriage and move (and what an appropriate subject?).  Yes, the painting is done in watercolor!  During the move I found some paintbrushes and watercolor paints from college (circa interim 2003).  Needless to say, I ended up having to purchase new ones.  Watercolor has its challenges but I had fun with my first painting.  Hunter has convinced me to practice and paint a Brody in the front yard.  So stay tuned for an update.

P.S.  Did anyone notice the blog name change? I think it has a nice ring to it!
