4x6 watercolor

Aimee's guest house. We lived in this little cottage our first winter here while we built our house. Its has been greatly improved since then. I did this the week before last before the rain started.

A view outside my new studio window on Monday.... last month Van replaced the old window which had gotten foggy between the thermal panes.

Last week with unusually beautiful sunny weather for this time of year, and after a long time passing where I've hardly touched a paint brush, I went out walking in the neighborhood with my painting kit and did these. They are all 4x6 inches watercolors.

View across the Salmon River from the Smokehouse porch,

another view from the Smokehouse porch,

the Salmon River bridge... I had drawn this in pencil in 2006, forgotten and found in a pile of paper. It took me a while to find the spot where I sat then in the grass and brush last week to paint,

the cottonwoods are so beautiful this time of year. These are next to our neighbor Don's house,

and so are these.

Down at the beach, not in the neighborhood.

Its more like normal now with a steady light rain, but I'm determined to keep doing doing these little paintings regularly and post them here again. So, I'm hereby reviving this blog.... again.
