Dream Big…


This may get cropped down, but at least I can begin by dreaming big :)

No, I didn’t take that bear photo :D Franklin did.

My next few blog posts will share some of the stages of a watercolor inspired from

Franklin’s photo.

In search of some awesome reference photos that photographers want you to paint from?

Each month they offer a Monthly Challenge.

February Challenge is, The Hills Are Alive.

One of the most important things I learned from the Jan. 30 in 30 is to keep the momentum going….so, I’m taking it on and dreaming big.

My goal at the beginning was to show up. Thankful and a little relieved to share this 30 In 30 Collage that shows I showed up!

Many thanks to all who shared, liked and commented. You helped keep me going.

Life is a journey. When we stop, things don’t go right. – Pope Francis

Let’s all just keep going…

Recognize the same colors and similar small flower shapes that were in Day 27? It’s another cropped section from the same source I continued to work. If you look closely, you may be surprised like I was with the unplanned, uncontrived, rather cute, emerging T-Rex. Or, maybe I’m just seeing things ;)

Our life is frittered away by detail…simplify, simplify. – Henry David Thoreau

Even usual placement of my signature was distracting for this painting’s message. Minimalist approach using Dr. Ph. Martin’s Hydrus Watercolors.
