It's been so long...

...since I last saw my littlest grandson. He's already had a birthday and gone through so many changes. Here's a look at his "first tooth".

I never paint portraits of people and really want to change that and improve.

I only have photos of this little guy, (I won't be visiting him until April) and figured that would be an easy way to start. At least he wouldn't be a moving target!

It wasn't as easy as I thought and this is the only one I was willing to sign. (I've put quite a few paintings through the shredder.)

Been working on loosening up a bit and playing more with watercolor. I find it so difficult to "step away from the painting" and fiddle and fuss, ending with much too much detail.

So I focus on letting go. Sounds like an impossible task but here is the result of my effort.

three pears

I'd love to hear your opinion of this small work. Please leave a comment.
