I'm home from my travels with several new little watercolors in a little sketch book that a friend gave me just before I left home. Above is the first painting that I did in it. I did it from the ferry just before we left Gustavus for Juneau on the first leg of our trip to Florida.
Above is a scan of the book. My friend purchased it at Uwajimaya, a large Japanese store in Seattle. I like the paper a lot. It is more forgiving than most of the watercolor papers I use. it measures about 6x7.5 inches.
I'm here in Florida for a while. I must admit to not keeping to my intentions to paint 29 little paintings in February, but I did do about 20. I got too busy getting ready to leave home and we spent a couple of days in Juneau which were also busy. Then there was jet lag. In the last few days, I have done a few sketches and little paintings and yesterday took some photos of them. I was going to post here, but discovered I didn't bring the cord to put them on my laptop. And there is no scanner. Darn it!
What I did just do, which I'd been meaning to do for a long time, is post on my other blog about some books that I have had paintings and drawings included it. You might like to take a look, here.
This is a little painting that I did in my sketch book on Spruce Island, near Kodiak, in 2014, and is on the back cover of Fran Kelso's book Alaska Attitudes.
Unless I come into contact with a scanner, I'll be back here after I get home in a couple of weeks.
