Dream Big…


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

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?

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

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

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.
