Third Week Recap of World Watercolor Month

Charlie, the founder of Doodlewash and World Watercolor Month, has given us thought-provoking prompts this year; these are my interpretations for the third week. The paintings are not meant to be masterpieces. The point is to simply enjoy the process of painting and not worry about the end product so much.

It’s a horrible thing to forget rain gear when it is pouring!

Most machines are held together by these.

On the spur of the moment, hopping in the car to get some ice cream!

Favorite Scent - Magnolia

Magnolia flowers emit an exhilarating, heady floral/citrus scent. I wish we had a magnolia tree in our yard.

Wiggle - Bobber

We spent many hours as kids watching bobbers wiggle around in the lake, and it was so exciting when the tail end went vertical!

Organic - Mushrooms
Organic – Mushrooms

It seems that people either enjoy the taste of mushrooms or dislike them immensely. I rather enjoy them. How about you?

Thanks for stopping by, and please be well!

Fetta di Pizza, Slice of Pizza

Fetta di Pizza (translates from Italian to English to Slice of Pizza) is my newest watercolor and is a companion piece to the previous Cibo di Comodita painting from last month. I don’t really considered myself a food artist, but these were such fun to paint with the wide variety of colors needed and challenges of food textures.

I don’t eat much pizza nowadays but certainly enjoy it. Most toppings are fair game, but I generally prefer to go the veggie route. What are your favorite pizza toppings?
